BBQ Short Ribs

Amazing Ribs! – Something Totally New!

  • Author: Tina Turbin


My goal was to find a way to make BBQ ribs in an hour or less. Well I’m happy to say I’ve achieved this goal and this recipe does just that thanks to America’s Test Kitchens!


  • 4 pounds pork spare ribs (I proudly use 5280 pork ribs)
  • 2 cups (at least) BBQ Sauce of your choice or make your own
  • 6 tablespoons salt
  • 7 1/2 quarts water or enough to cover the ribs fully
  • Coconut oil (for grill)
  • IMPORTANT: Ratio is 2 tablespoons salt to 2 1/2 quarts water


  1. Place 2 tablespoons of salt into 2 1/2 quarts water in a big deep pan or Dutch oven.
  2. Add ribs to water before heated ensuring all are submerged.
  3. Bring to a simmer over high heat.
  4. Reduce heat to low.
  5. Heat up your grill now.
  6. Cover the ribs and cook for about 15-25 minutes.
  7. Cook until the THICKEST part reaches 195F degrees with a temperature probe.
  8. Leave in the pot until ribs are ready for the BBQ.
  9. Remove and dry with paper towels.
  10. Apply sauce liberally to your ribs.
  11. BBQ for 7-10 minutes each side.
  12. Add more sauce as needed.
  13. Do not let them burn.
  14. Enjoy!
