My new hobby – BBQ Pork Spare Ribs

So I’ve found a new hobby, BBQ Pork Spare Ribs. I watched a show called BBQ Pit masters, which showed a selection of American BBQ Pit masters roasting various bits of meat and then deciding which ones are worth prizes of thousands of dollars.

I am not trying to make money from my hobby, but it is something I’m passionate about. And the best thing is, it’s a great hobby. It’s not like climbing a mountain. The steps to my hobby are:

  1. Get some meat – I prefer some nice pork spare ribs, around $10NZD for a small rack
  2. Make your own rib rub – I like to make a nice Kansas City Rib Rub
  3. Put the rub on the ribs – It’s a dry rub, so don’t go turning it into a baste
  4. Put it at 125 degrees Celsius for four hours – it gets slow cooked so that the meat nearly falls off the bones
  5. Play some Russian Party Poker – if you’re Russian, it’s probably a good way to pass the time. These ribs aren’t going to be cooking any time soon, and Poker is as good as any other method to kill some spare time.
  6. Mop the ribs with apple juice every half an hour or so
  7. Take the ribs out, and eat.

It’s a great past time, doesn’t take up a lot of time or effort, and at the end you have delicious ribs.
