World's Best BBQ Ribs

Honestly, unless you're in New Orleans or somewhere where BBQ takes 3 days, these are the best you're ever gonna get. I'm told that what we northern folks do by burning meat in the back yard is not to be properly called BBQ at all, it's "grilling". Well then, these are the best "grilled" ribs ever.

Prepare Ribs:

  • 5 lbs back ribs
  • 1 onion 1/4'd
  • 2 tbsp. Tabasco sauce
Put into pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 45 minutes.


  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup STRONG brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 tbsp. Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
Bring to boil, simmer 5 minutes. Baste ribs frequently and liberally on a low-med grill for about 20 minutes.

Back ribs are often fatty so it's wise to keep the temperature low and keep a good eye on them. I don't mind some charring, it only enhances the flavour... but be careful not to burn too much.
