A PECAN crust on your BabyBacks? Everyone at BBQ Tricks.com is ready to try this neat use for Pecans.Inspired by a Dominican Republic drink known as Mamajuana (also described as Dominican Viagra!), these ribs go through a two-stage cooking process.
First a slow braise to tenderize the ribs, then grilling and basting for the char flavor and crispy goodness.
Don’t limit your babecue to just smoking with hickory and mesquite. Try Basil Twigs. If you happen to grow fresh basil during the summer months you’ll likely find that you have an dry bush of twigs as winter nears. Not good looking… but good for cooking!
Use the completely dried twigs to add flavor to your next cook out. Soak the twigs as you would any wood chips and use them to add that secret basil flavor to pork chops or a good London broil. Enjoy a cold one while your buddies argue over what wood your using!
Cut the ribs off in a manner that will force you to discard every other bone. You will essentially scalp the “middle” rib to allow the bones on each side to showcase the meat. You’ll NEVER see them offered this way in restaurants because there is some waste involved.
As the cook – you can reserve the “discarded” and skinny middle bones as a snack for later. They’ll still have SOME meat… but NOTHING compared to the monsters you’ll have on the serving tray.
