St Louis style Ribs | BoulderLocavore.com


This method allows the ribs are virtually cooked when coming out of the oven but the grilling gives that tell tale flavoring to finish them off without drying them out or blackening them. One rack of ribs feeds 3-4. Multiple racks of ribs can be cooked at a time using the same method.

A rack of this style of ribs was about $10 at a better local butcher shop.  I made 2 racks for 4 diners planning leftovers.  There were a lot of leftovers and they were just as delicious the second….and third time
