This past weekend, however, I made a few racks of these glazed ribs for a special occasion. I made them to serve at a small gathering of friends to celebrate my continuing march toward oblivion, also known as my birthday!

They were snapped up pretty quickly and several guests declared them to be the best ribs they had ever eaten. Who am I to disagree? 😉

Pork side ribs or back ribs can be used in this recipe.

Pork side ribs or back ribs can be used for this recipe. The larger side ribs will take a little longer to cook to tender.

While ribs will be fully cooked at 160 degrees F on a meat thermometer, they will not be ready to eat. At this stage they will still be quite chewy and tough.

The purpose of the low and slow method is to get the final internal temperature to between 190 degrees F and 205 degrees F. At this stage, the fat has rendered out well and the natural collagens in the meat have broken down and softened.

This is the stage that ribs are best. Taking them over that point will then make them over cooked, to a point where the meat falls off the bone.

In my opinion, this make them difficult to cut into individual ribs. The meat then falls off the bone too easily to be eaten as ribs should.

This is one of my favourite rib recipes which I often serve with some great Oven Baked Potato Wedges for a weekend supper.
