JD Cooks ~ Tex Mex Pork Ribs

May 7, 2011

Over last weekend, me and my friends decided to gather around to have a session of BBQ. As there was a new BBQ grill, we decided to try something new.


I took the recipe from AFC‘s Robert Rainford recipe. It’s a pretty straightforward recipe where the most difficult thing is to find baby pork ribs. We weren’t sure what is baby pork ribs but apparently it’s the same as pork ribs, just that it’s the longer version of it. Those that are normally sell in pasar are normally chopped into smaller pieces.

Aside from the ribs, other ingredients include Garlic Salt, Cumin, Hot Chilli Powder, Paprika Powder, Cayenne Powder, Oregano, Onion Salt and Brown Sugar. Details of the recipe can be found here.

After combining all the ingredients, I rubbed it all on the ribs like this.


Just make sure that it’s evenly spread along the ribs.


After that, just leave it inside a sealable plastic bag overnight.


According to the website, the way to cook the ribs is to place it under indirect heat. Hickory wood chips is used to provide the smokey flavour. I’m soaking the wood chips as I need the create this smoke pouch for the smokiness.


After about 2 hours inside the grill being smoke, this is the end result. Taste wise it’s pretty flavourful with all the spices that were used. However, the only thing was that there’s a small portion of the meat that is not cooked well even after 2 hours, so we had to put it inside the over to make sure it’s properly cook. Aside from that, everything is pretty alright. We are going to make it again for Mother’s Day so till then have fun!

    I have just finished marinating the pork ribs. To get the herbs/spices to mix well, I actually measured everything into a mixing bowl then I used a pestle to softly grind them again. This way, I should think lump of powdered herbs is mixed properly. Well, hope it taste good tomorrow when we BBQ for mother’s day.
