You have a hankering for some home-made barbecue ribs but you live in an apartment. You don’t own an outdoor grill, much less a smoker. And since you’re on the second floor, there’s not even a backyard to barbecue in.
How do grill-deprived apartment dwellers, like ourselves, produce barbecue ribs that would make even a seasoned pit master salivate?
Fear not, because Colleen has the solution. She’s devised a devious method that delivers delectably smokey, caramelized, just plain delicious ribs to your taste buds without leaving the great air conditioned indoors.
Using some liquid smoke and an oven broiler, she has reduced fancy backyard smokers to bells and whistles.
Even if you do have a nice backyard setup, this recipe will help insure that you don’t go without ridiculous fall-off-the-bone ribs, even in a rainstorm.
And for all you upper floor renters, that backyard you wish you had is hereby an unnecessary accessory…
