Glenn Gross grills up some amazing BBQ!  He owns the ever-expanding Fat Jack's BBQ.  Glenn was in our studio again treating our taste buds to some delicious recipes.

FAT JACKS RIBS (but not quite the WHOLE secret)

-Slab of your favorite ribs (as many as you like and whatever cut you like (Baby Back, St. Louis or spare)
-Pell off the membrane on the back
-Season both sides of the slab with your favorite seasonin (blend of sugar, paprika, salt, Pepper, Onion powder, Granulated Garlic are great combos)
-Make the rub to your tastes, if you want it garlicky, add more garlic, spicy, add cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper), try some lemon pepper for a unique taste
-Place ribs in oven pan , add about 1/2" water and a tablespoon or 2 of liquid smoke, cover with foil. Cook in 325 degree oven for about 1 1/2 hours.
-Remove Ribs from oven, place the slabs on the grill, bone side down, slather with your favorite BBQ sauce. Allow 3-4 minutes on bone side then flip them, sauce the bottom of the slab. Allow top to cook for several minute so they get a nice char to them.
-Take 'em off he grill, cut 'em up and enjoy.
-If you have a smoker, use your favorite wood (wet wood produces more smoke and flavor, but watch it, your meat can get dark). Place your seasoned ribs in the smoker at about 250 degrees and allow them to smoke for 4-6 hours, but you must watch them constantly and flip them every 1 1/2 hours. A nice touch is to spray the slabs with apple juice every hour to keep them moist.



3 Cups yellow mustard
1 cup Brown sugar
1/2 cup Molassses
1/4 cup Cider Vinegar

-If you want a sweeter or more pungent sauce, feel free to adjust all the ingredients to your taste
