I have shared these before, but they were not in my Recipe Page and didn’t have pictures so I though that I would share them again….
When I was young, one of my favourite places to eat was the Bar-B-Barn in Montreal. I remember going with my mom or my dad on many occasions, but these always remind me of my dad. Around the time I got married, I found the recipe for Bar-B-Barn ribs on the internet, from an article in the Montreal Gazette from 1990…
I have made this over and over in the last years and they have just gotten better and better through trial and error…
I usually use two racks of ribs when I make this recipe since that is usually how they are sold. I get the small ones because I rarely can find long ribs here, but either will do.
First, line a pan with tinfoil and put the dry rub together.
2 tbsp Kosher Salt
2 tbsp Paprika
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Chili Powder
2 tbsp Garlic Powder
Lay the ribs on the pan and coat on both sides with the dry rub.
Cover with more tin foil and seal tightly around the edges…
Bake in oven at 275 for about 2 1/2 hours….
Meanwhile, make the sauce…
In a sauce pan combine…
2 c Brown Sugar
1 c Apple Sauce (homemade is great 🙂 )
1/2 c Fresh Lemon Juice (about 2 lemons)
1/2 ts Salt
1/2 ts Paprika
1/2 ts Cinnamon
1/2 ts Pepper
1/2 ts Garlic Powder
Bring to boil and let boil for about 2 min and then let cool…
(homemade apple sauce)
Take the ribs out of the oven… When they come out they should already have a great colour…
Turn the heat up on the oven to 350, baste the ribs heavily with the sauce and bake for another 45min (adding more sauce to the ribs every 10-15 min)
The ribs will have no problem being fall off the bone tender…
Sprinkle with lemon juice before serving,… it is essential 🙂
