Make BBQ rub and ribs

Everybody loves barbecue ribs, but not everybody wants to make them, cause they can be pretty messy. But they don't have to be a super messy dish, although messy usually means tastier. Check out this video recipe to see how to make BBQ rub and ribs.

Barbecued ribs are treated royally here with a rub, then smoked, baked and grilled. This is fall-off-the-bone, dripping down your arms, good stuff. You've seen rubs, you've tasted rubs, you've made rubs. You have not seen, tasted or made them all until you tackle this one. For a finishing touch, don't forget Eric's BBQ Sauce. You'll think you're in BBQ heaven.
