Feast Of The Beast Holiday Edition

Hail All! I read recently that pork ribs are a traditional holiday food in Norway, so I figured I'd try to cook some up. This is the first time I've ever done ribs (not sure why, just never have), but they turned out pretty damn good, if I do say so myself.

It was about 39 degrees on this Texas morning when I fired up the coals...

Fire good.

Pork ribs, with some Stubbs BBQ Rub on them.

I put 'em on the outer edges of the fire, so they would cook slowly and not get burned.

I let them cook for a while, maybe 20-30 minutes, just enough to get a good grillin' on the outsides. Then, I took them inside, wrapped 'em in foil, and put them in the oven on 225 degrees for about three hours.

The finished product...they were super-tender. I may add some more spices to the rub next time, but otherwise, it was pretty good. Had some Stubbs BBQ Sauce, rolls, potatoes, and veggies on the side. Good eatin'! Hope you all had a good holiday today! Hail!

I wouldn't have minded being at your house for these. They look incredible. Lana and I had mini steaks and I had some hot sauce soaked hominey, which was very good.

You and Lana have a standing invitation to my place, you know.
