Step One:

  • In a deep baking pan, add water and some type of Liquid Smoke. (We do this step a little differently at the restaurant, due to our equipment.)
  • Mix well.
  • Take Ribs, use a shaker and your favorite dry seasoning (we have our seasoning for sale online at and thoroughly coat each of the Ribs.
  • Place Ribs in the pan.

Step Two:

  • Place pans in 300 degree oven and bake slowly until done.
  • Ribs are fully cooked when the bone in the center pulls freely from the meat. At this point, remove from the oven.

Step Three:

  • Pick your favorite BBQ sauce for re-heating and basting the Ribs.
  • Pre-heat grill.
  • Brush and season the grill before use.
  • Place the Rack of Ribs vertically, with the underside down to the grates.
  • Heat until sizzling hot.
  • Turn Ribs over and baste the underside of the Ribs, and heat until sizzling hot.
  • Baste the top.
  • Turn the Ribs over one last time and baste with a final coat.
  • Serve to your guests and accept their complements graciously!!!
