BrewBQ 3-2-1 Ribs
Updated: Mar 10
We did our first video shoot (not on an iPhone) a couple weeks ago. It was such a great experience. I will say we learned a lot about how to prep food for a shoot. A lot more went into it than I thought. Thank goodness for my OCD, we were pretty well prepared. There were several things I will do differently next time. One of the recipes we wanted to document was our version of ribs. We did 3 racks of BrewBQ ribs! Thankfully Costco sells pre-packed ribs in sets of 3. Yes, we had all of the family over after to eat all of the extra food. The name 3-2-1 comes from the cooking time for the ribs. Everyone has their own variations, here is ours:
BrewBQ 3-2-1 Ribs
1 rack of pork ribs
2 1/4 bags of BrewBQ Original Sauce Mix - divided
2 beers or soda (flavor of your choice) - divided
Pull of the membrane from the bone side of the ribs. Coat all sides of the ribs with mustard and BrewBQ Original Sauce Mix about 1 bag).
Place the ribs directly on your 225 degree smoker, bone side down. Smoke for 3 hours. Pull the ribs and place on foil (enough to cover and seal the entire rack of ribs). Sprinkle with more BrewBQ Original Sauce Mix (about 1/4 of a bag) on all sides. Make the foil into a bowl - sealed so no liquid can get out. Pour in 1 beer or soda. Wrap the entire rack of ribs in foil so no liquid can escape. Put back on the smoker, flesh side down for 2 hours.
While the ribs are smoking in the foil, simmer together your beer or soda and one bag of BrewBQ Original Sauce Mix until the mix is dissolved and the sauce is reduced to a thick sauce consistency. Allow the sauce to cool. Pull ribs from the smoker and open the foil. Take the mixed BrewBQ Sauce Mix and baste it on the ribs in the foil on all sides. After basting, put the ribs directly on the grill and smoke for another hour. After that hour, pull the ribs and let them cool (if you can wait). Enjoy with some coleslaw!
