Delicious barbecue ribs are only available during certain seasons. Low-and-slow cooking is key for fatty meats like ribs
This makes the meat juicy instead of dry and chewy. You need a smoker, good weather, and hours to cook ribs, right? You can make high-quality ribs in a regular oven.
As you won't get the usual smoky, barbecue flavour, make a marinade that brings out the ribs' flavour and adds smoker flavours. Liquid smoke works well here.
Two racks of pork baby back ribs
Four cups water
One cup salt
One cup brown sugar
One cup apple cider vinegar
One tablespoon liquid smoke
Using a knife, remove any membrane from the ribs. The membrane won’t cook down, so removing as much as possible is ideal.
Place the ribs in a deep dish
Mix the water, salt, sugar, vinegar and liquid smoke in a mixing bowl
