Food Recipe of the Day: Classic Melt-in-Your-Mouth BBQ Ribs

Classic Melt-In-Your-Mouth BBQ Ribs
I was very reluctant to share this recipe as it is one of my favorites and is a big hit ever time I make them, so, as not to be selfish i've decided to pass it on! I've found that the easiest way to remove the membrane from the ribs is to use a spoon to make a hole or pocket in the membrane after snipping with my kitchen shears and then using my thumbs to work into and remove the membrane. Also, just a little bit of liquid smoke rubbed into the ribs before cooking goes a long, long way, enjoy!
