Our Favorite Hilltop Ribs:

All you need for the best Hilltop beef or pork ribs is some Hilltop salt & pepper rub & your favorite barbecue sauce! (Is there anything else other than Head & Country?!). 

Then we throw them on the grill low heat for about 30 minutes to an hour. Grilling ribs is a popular method that results in juicy and flavorful meat with a nice charred exterior. To grill ribs, marinate them in your favorite barbecue sauce or dry rub for at least an hour before cooking. Then, as you grill them, turn them occasionally to ensure even cooking. Brush on additional barbecue sauce during the last few minutes of grilling for extra flavor. Delicious!

Baked Ribs

Baking beef or pork ribs is a great option for those who prefer a more hands-off approach to cooking. To bake ribs, season them with a dry rub or marinade, then place them in a baking dish. Cover the dish with foil and bake the ribs in a preheated oven at 300°F for 2-3 hours, or until the meat is tender and cooked through. For a caramelized finish, broil the ribs for a few minutes after baking and brush on barbecue sauce.

Smoked Pork Ribs

For a rich and smoky flavor, smoking pork ribs is the way to go. To smoke beef or pork ribs, prepare a smoker with your choice of wood chips and preheat it to 225-250°F. Season the ribs with a dry rub and place them in the smoker, cooking them low and slow for 4-6 hours. Baste the ribs with barbecue sauce during the last hour of smoking to create a sticky glaze that enhances the flavor.

Enhancing the Flavor with Barbecue Sauce

Barbecue sauce is a key ingredient in making delicious ribs. Whether you prefer a sweet and tangy sauce or a spicy and smoky one, barbecue sauce adds depth and richness to the meat. Brush on barbecue sauce during cooking for a caramelized finish, or serve it on the side for dipping. Experiment with different flavors and brands to find the perfect sauce that complements your ribs.

Whichever method you choose, cooking Hilltop beef or pork ribs with barbecue sauce is sure to result in a mouthwatering meal that will satisfy your cravings for tender and flavorful ribs. Try out these different cooking techniques and enjoy the delicious taste of perfectly cooked ribs!
