As you walk through the park it is a feast for the senses as the aroma from each of the vendors rib recipes mingle together.
Some are very spicy where others are smoky and sweet.
I love to make my own ribs at home. I have many variations of sauce recipes.
This version is both sweet and spicy.
You can use side or back ribs. I usually buy whatever is on sale.
Slow roasting in the oven first ensures they are very tender. (and makes your kitchen smell wonderful!)
Finishing off on the grill seals in the juices and browns them up.
When the aroma from the grill fills the air, your neighbors will soon be over wondering if you are having your own Rib Festival!
Slow Roasted Ribs

- 1 1/2 cups of basic chicken/rib barbecue sauce
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp hot chili flakes

Lay ribs in a very large roasting rib side down.
In a bowl combine the remaining ingredients.
Spread evenly all over the ribs. cover pan tightly with foil and roast in oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Remove ribs from pan and place on hot barbecue.
Grill until brown basting with remaining sauce from the roasting pan.
