“Easy recipe for mouth watering pork ribs”
2hrs 5mins

Ingredients Nutrition

  • salt (I use gray salt, an unprocessed sea salt from France)
  • black pepper
  • 1 pork rib rack (about 3 pounds)
  • 20 freshly cut pineapple chunks
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • heavy duty aluminum foil
  • 12 ounces of your favorite barbecue sauce (I like the one made by Jack Daniels)


  1. First - have your butcher remove the "silver skin" from the back of the ribs.
  2. Rub salt and pepper modestly on both sides of ribs (or use a readily available meat rub from a good grocery store.
  3. tear off several sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil - put a couple of tablespoons of water on the aluminum foil.
  4. place ribs on the foil (the water will be under the "arch.".
  5. put numerous strips of fresh pineapple on top of the ribs.
  6. tightly seal the ribs in the aluminum foil.
  7. put in a pre-heated 275 degree oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  8. remove from oven, and carefully open the aluminum foil package.
  9. push the pineapple strips aside, and pour a liberal amount of sauce on the ribs - replace the pineapple.
  10. reseal the aluminum "package" and return to oven for an additional 15 minutes).
  11. remove the package from the oven - put on as baking sheet - turn on the broiler - broil (about 6 inches from broiler elements) for 3-5 minutes, or put on grill for the same time, until the sauce is bubbling.
