This is the first time after 20 years,to make rib's again!! 20 years ago on a wedding party I ate my first rib's...and it was the last time..I had a food poisoning from the rib's,Man it was horrible....It took me a few months to fully recover from it...Until now....after 20 years i've got to try it again....I asked Hanneke from "TheDutchessCooks" for a nice rub recipe.
This is what she gave me.(I adjust it a little bit)
The ingredients for the rub:1,5 teaspoon smoked paprika powder,1,5 teaspoon hot paprika powder,1 teaspoon black pepper, ground,¼ cup brown sugar,¼ teaspoon cumin powder,½ teaspoon cayenne powder,½ teaspoon chili powder,½ teaspoon onion powder,½ teaspoon Sea salt.
Clean the ribs (remove the membrane!!) apply the rub and let them marinade overnight in the fridge.
The ingredients for the sauce:2 tablespoons tomato paste,¼ cup cider vinegar,1 tablespoon chili sauce, ¼ teaspoon cumin powder,2 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce,6 tablespoons Bacardi rum,5 cloves,¼ cup brown sugar And 2 cups ketchup.
Bring all the ingredients except the ketchup to a boil and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Add the ketchup, bring to a boil and let this simmer for 30 minutes. Let it cool.
The grilling part: Prepare the grill for indirect grilling.Put the rib's on the grill for about an hour.After 1 hour take the rib's of the grate and pack in aluminum foil.Set back on the grill for another hour.. Unpack the rib's and put back on the grate.
Now you can mop the rib's with the sauce for about half an hour...
The next time I add a bit more sugar and less chili powder/sauce
For desert we had fresh strawberry's with whipped cream...
Enjoy with home made French fries and a glass of red wine.
