Elliot Mellow’s St. Louis Style Rib’s Recipe
- 1 c apple juice
- 2 table spoon honey
- 2 table spoon cider vinegar
- Spare ribs cut down to STL style
- Spice mix or rub of your choice
You want the ribs to have some flex to them but not falling apart. After about 30 minutes of cooking the sauce in, the ribs should be ready!
(Please note that air flow and cooking temperature will alter the cooking time. For higher temperature cooking please allow less time in the foil boats)
So join us tomorrow night at 6PM Central/7PM Eastern for #FOODTVChat with Guest Host Elliot Mellow and bring your BBQ questions!
