Great recipe. I modified a few of the ingredients but the techniques worked very well. Also wrapped each rack by itself and they came out of the oven very moist. Used about 1/3 cup of the apple juice in each package
Family was very happy and the ribs did not last long
Husband really liked these. I thought there was way too much smoked paprika flavor. I'll definitely reduce the smoked paprika by at least half next time. Maybe sub regular paprika. Also not sure you need a cup of apple juice. Will reduce or try without next time. These were easy to make and clean up ... I'll give them that.
Made 3 racks for a party and they were a hit. So tender they just fell off the bone. Also had lots of compliments on the sauce. I did wrap each rack separately (as suggested) and I think that probably was key to having them all so tender.
So easy, so yummy, fall off the bone meat...
Only cooked it for 1 1/2 hours in the oven and the last 30 on the fire(BBQ). Cooked it for South Africans which are a hard crowd to please when it comes to a 'braai'...
"NOTE: Multiple Racks of ribs: You can choose to place the ribs into a shallow baking pan with a lid (or sealed with foil) instead of individually sealing each one in its own aluminum foil tent, however I have tried both, and I get far better results sealing each rack individually, in my opinion its worth the extra effort."
Has anyone tried a pan as opposed to the foil? I'm not good at the whole gift wrapping thing. I've tried a few times and fail every time. I've been using this method for years but in a pan instead of the foil. I might try again but it would be nice to know what the differences are in the results before making the rather proportionate effort. Not to be negative but steamed meat is steamed meat is it not? I can't say one way or the other if this is true but, I've heard of some rather adverse health effects that can be attributed to cooking with aluminium foil so I try to avoid it when possible.
