Carolina Style Ribs

Recipe by  

"Mustard based sauces are definitively South Carolina. This one will definitely satisfy your needs. This is for the big fatty ribs, not the baby backs. Do not trim the fat from the ribs. This method renders out fat and keeps ribs moist. If you do not have a smoker available, this can also be done in the oven."

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, lemon juice, white vinegar, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, molasses and mustard. Season with granulated garlic, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, white pepper and cayenne pepper, and mix well. Set aside.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill or smoker to 225 to 250 degrees F (110 to 120 degrees C).
  3. Rub ribs liberally with barbeque seasoning, then place them in the smoker or grill, and cover. Cook for 4 hours, or until very tender. The meat will easily separate from the bone. Baste ribs with mustard sauce liberally during the final 30 minutes. Heat remaining sauce to a boil, and serve on the side.

Dissapointing. Tasted like mustard, but not like the Carolina bbq sauces I recall. I will stick to the Carolina Treat branded bottled sauce for now.

The good bbq coming out of South Carolina uses the type sauce referred to as "old style." That is the best. There are some ketchupy sauces used in the upstate and the some commercial folks use a mustard base neither of of which should be used with pork. For the real deal, stick with "old style."

I loved the sauce! I used a coarse grain deli sauce for the mustard and it was great! For the bbq seasoning, I used Emeril's Rib Rub...the outcome was YUM! Finger-Lickin'

The mustard overwhelmed the other flavors. I'm thinking it might have been the type of mustard I used. It was prepared hot mustard, although; I didn’t think it was hot in the least. It did however, have a very strong flavor. My husband liked this sauce, so will try this recipe again. I will use a different type of mustard, perhaps yellow, spicy brown, Dijon; any suggestions?

I was raised on Texas BBQ, but these ribs are one of the best I have ever made....I made them in the crockpot and they came out perfect cooked on high for 4 hours
