Barbecue Pork Spare Ribs
camping recipe
Category: Pork   Rating: 10
Backpacking: No Effort: easy Serves: any Prep time: 60m+
  • 3 slabs of pork spare ribs
  • 1 pint Barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup water (optional for steaming/simmering)
  • Vegetable oil
  • Black pepper
How to Prepare:
Barbeque pork spare ribs with charcoal grill and dutch oven for melt in your mouth backyard or campground dinner.

Needed: Charcoal grill, Deep 12" dutch oven, most of an afternoon, and 6-8 hungry folks.

Prepare charcoal grill for ash white hot coals and maximum grill height for slow browning. While coals are burning down, split slab ribs into individual rib pieces and swab with cooking oil. Pepper liberally and then brown on both sides. Do not pre-boil ribs. Prepare deep 12" dutch oven by placing an inverted pie pan or trivet into oven bottom. This prevents ribs on the bottom from sticking and burning. Place dutch oven on the charcoal grill and add the browned ribs. Slow cook/simmer ribs covered, about 2-3 hours or until meat begins to fall off bone. You may line oven with aluminum foil to ease clean up chores. Add briquettes to the fire as necessary. When the pot is half full of ribs I add bbq sauce (or add water to prevent drying out while simmering) to those on the bottom only. Continue loading the oven with the browned ribs. This step is optional as well as adjustable since some folks prefer to add sauce after cooking. The steaming sauce flavors the bottom ribs thoroughly and the top ribs somewhat less.

Don't like huge numbers of moths, mayflies, etc around your lantern at night? Hang that bright fuel lantern 30 feet or more to the side of your site, then use a softer light battery lantern in the human zone. You'll still benefit some from the big lantern, and the battery one will suffice in any case, but all the night bugs will be drawn to the brighter light, leaving you more than relatively bug-free.
