No, it’s not a Chili’s commercial. After many years of resisting, I finally broke down and decided to cook baby back ribs. The recipe came from America’s Test Kitchen. It was basically a dry rub with some liquid sauce added during the last bit of cooking.
I have also hear about techniques where the ribs are finished on the grill, wrapped in foil to maintain moisture after searing on a hot grill to start.
Lots of ways to skin a cat, I guess.
