Enjoy
delicious hickory smoked ribs any time of the year, smothered in a delicious
homemade barbecue sauce or your favorite Lunds & Byerlys barbeque sauce.

4-6 servings
Preparation time: 1 hour 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4-6 pounds
    ribs (1 pound loin back ribs per person or ¾ pound country style loin ribs per
    person)
  • 1 (3
    ½-ounce) bottle liquid smoke
  • 2 cups
    water
  • 1 bottle any
    Lunds & Byerlys barbeque sauce

Directions

1.    
Cut
ribs into serving-size pieces; remove any excess fat. Place in a large skillet
or Dutch oven.

2.    
Pour
liquid smoke and water over the ribs.

3.    
Cover
and steam over moderate heat for 20-25 minutes. Drain.

To grill:

Grill
drained ribs 3 inches from moderate coals for 20 minutes, turning once. Brush
with homemade barbecue sauce (see recipe below), or keep it simple with a
bottle of Lunds & Byerlys barbeque sauce of your choice. Continue grilling
until ribs are done (20-30 minutes), basting often with sauce.

To rotisserie:

Lace or
weave drained ribs onto rotisserie rod, balancing ribs for even cooking and
turning; secure ends with holding forks. Arrange medium-hot coals at the back
of the fire box; place drip pan under ribs. Cook ribs until done (about 1
hour), basting often with barbecue sauce.

To bake:

In a
shallow baking pan, arrange drained ribs in a single layer. Spread with
barbecue sauce. Bake, covered, in a 325 F oven until tender (about 1 hour).
