Give your ribs a top-notch rub

Warm weather means barbecue, and nothing says barbecue better than a steaming-hot rack of ribs.

Mouthwatering ribs take time, effort, TLC and patience. Perfect ribs take four to six hours to be done right.

Ribs should be cooked low and slow, at 250 degrees (plus or minus 25 degrees) because the meat fibers need time to break down, like brisket, so they're tender enough to eat. Ernie Adler
