These BBQ Sriracha Ribs are zesty and scrumptious! They are mostly prepared ahead of time, for super tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs. You may never make ribs any other way again.
I don’t know about you, but Father’s Day has snuck up on us. With all the various things the five of us are juggling on our plates, I didn’t realize until just yesterday that Father’s Day is this Sunday. My brain had been telling me we had another week, but the calendar doesn’t lie.
Thankfully, I’m married to a guy who isn’t H.M. (high maintenance) about Father’s Day or any other day really. He’s blessed with an easygoing attitude when it comes to special occasions. Works for me. No crazy planning needed on my end.
The last several years, The Littles and I have gotten up early and fixed breakfast for Hubby on Father’s Day. These waffles have become a tradition. The Biggest Little is in charge of those waffles and plans to whip up a fluffy bunch this Sunday. The Middle Little is our best scrambled eggs chef; that will be his domain. The Littlest Little…um…I’ll get back to you on that one.
That takes care of the morning meal for Father’s Day. I haven’t thought much about dinner yet, but this I know: Hubby’s crazy about BBQ. We’re talkin’ ribs, pulled pork, cornbread, and more ribs. Can’t go wrong with some great BBQ ribs.
In fact, I wasn’t much of a ribs eater until Hubby came along. He took us to so many BBQ joints that I knew it was time to join the party. I started making these finger licking, fork tender, amazing ribs at home. I’ll fight my household of boys for my fair share, they are that good.
And now I’m spinning off into Sriracha land with them.
These BBQ Sriracha Ribs are incredible. We can’t wait for you to see for yourself. You may never make ribs any other way again. These babies do need to be prepped at least a day ahead, so the dry rub has time to do its magic. After marinating in dry rub overnight, we slow bake these ribs until they are tender. At this point, you’ll want to tear right into them…and they’ll taste amazing already.
But it gets better. Smother the ribs with plenty of delectable Sriracha BBQ sauce. Then throw ’em on the grill to get that beautiful char and smoky flavor. These ribs are sooo good, there are not enough words to describe.
A picture’s worth a thousand…
Let me take a moment to dedicate these irresistible ribs to Hubby. The man who tirelessly works by day, coaches by night, and still makes time to handle all the tech around here. He spends time with the boys, still dates me, and makes sure I don’t get lost while driving. Plus, he eats whatever I make – even those fails that never make it on this blog. He’s a catch for sure.
These BBQ Sriracha Ribs are finger-licking great! Every bite is savory, sweet, and zesty. The ribs are mostly prepared ahead of time, and grilled right before serving for a superior tenderness that can’t be beat. Fall-off-the-bone yum!
- 2 full racks uncooked ribs, 3-4 lbs each (Baby Back or St. Louis both work well)
- Dry Rub:
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 TB kosher salt
- 1 1/2 TB freshly ground black pepepr
- 1/2 tsp cayenne
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1 (18oz) bottle Sweet Baby Rays Honey BBQ Sauce (or your own favorite kind, bottled or homemade)
- 3 tsp Sriracha (for moderate spice level)
- 1 TB pure honey
- Dry the racks of ribs with paper towels. In a bowl, combine all dry rub ingredients and whisk to combine well. Pat and press dry rub onto both sides of rib racks. Tightly wrap each rack of ribs in foil, individually. Place in a single layer on a large baking sheet and let sit in fridge overnight.
- Preheat oven to 325F. Bake foil-wrapped ribs, on baking sheet, for 2 1/2 hours.
- Remove ribs, let cool enough to handle, and remove foil. Discard juices. (Ribs can be prepared one day early up to this point; just cover and chill until ready to grill.)
- Make the sauce by combining all sauce ingredients in a bowl. Brush ribs generously with desired amount of BBQ sauce. Ribs will be very tender, so handle carefully. Place on heated grill for 5-10 minutes per side, or until charred in spots. Use a sharp knife to carefully slice ribs so they don’t fall apart (should be fork tender!) Enjoy.
