Preheat your oven to 200C/400F. Lightly salt and pepper your ribs. Wrap the ribs in two layers of foil leaving a funnel shaped vent hole on one end. Pour in your choice of liquid as listed above, just enough so you see the foil puff out a little bit and then close the vent hole. Place the ribs on a tray lined with a baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for the first 1/2 hour at 200C/400F then turn the oven down to 150C/300F and bake for another 2 hours. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for 30 minutes. Open up the foil packages and remove the ribs carefully without breaking to the baking sheet. Gently brush both sides with Red Maple Original BBQ Sauce, place back in the oven for 20 minutes. Take them out of the oven, turn the oven up to 190C/375F. Put the ribs back in for another 45 minutes and baste both sides at every 15 minute interval. Remove from the oven, cut into portions and serve. The final product will be so tender you may have problems keeping meat on the bones until served.
Can be done in the oven or on the grill
Serve with a side of fries or pan fried potatoes.
Chipotle Chicken Kebabs
Two hours before we cook, we marinate the chicken cubes into 100 ml of the sauce. After the two hours you're going to Skewer the chicken cubes onto the skewers but alternate chicken cubes with onions. On a hot BBQ Grill on medium high, grease the grill and begin cooking the kabobs directly on the grill for 15 minutes. For the last 15 minutes of cooking baste them with the remaining 100 ml of sauce. Serve that with roasted potatoes.
Beef Short Ribs
Preheat oven to 190C/375F. In a large casserole dish on top of the stove, put in your oil until it starts to smoke on medium high, season meat with salt and pepper and brown off your meat 3 pieces at a time. Be sure to brown all sides (because they are square). Remove all from your pan, add diced onions, celery and carrots to the pot. Stir until any brown bits are removed from the bottom of the pot, and until the onions take on a translucent colour. Put your brown meat back on top of vegetables. Pour in one cup of orange juice and two cups of stock, cover, put in the oven. Wait 10 - 15 minutes then turn the oven down to 150C/300F. Cook for 2 and a half hours. After an hour in the oven, take the lid off. At the 2.5 hour mark take the dish out of the oven. Carefully remove the meat from the broth (very tender). Add 240 grams / 8 ounces of Red Maple Tangerine BBQ sauce to the broth. Allow the whole mixture to reduce on the top of the stove until it starts to thicken. Using a hand-held immersion blender, pour the vegetables into the mixture and puree until it is nicely diced. Place the meat back into the sauce and back into the oven, ensure the meat is coated on all sides with sauce and cook for another 40 minutes. Then take them out of the oven and serve with garlic mashed potatoes and some orange zest for garnish on top of the meat (use tangerine skins if you have it).
Pulled Pork Sandwich
Preheat your oven to 190C/375F. Season the pork with salt and pepper. Create a browning effect by putting the butt in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove and brush with Red Maple BBQ Mesquite BBQ Sauce. Cover and cook for 3 hours at 150C/300F. Remove and smother with Red Maple Mesquite BBQ Sauce and place back in the oven uncovered for 30 minutes.
Shred the pork and transfer to a rimmed baking sheet (you'll want to catch all the flavourful juices) and let stand until cool enough to handle. Shred into bit-size pieces, pile on a platter and pour any juices from the baking sheet on top.
Make the Sandwiches:
Mound the pork on bun bottoms, paint with Red Maple Mustard BBQ Sauce, top with slaw, and cover with the bun tops. The best sandwich ever!
