A SHORT NOTE ABOUT OUR RIBS AND RIBS IN GENERAL:
All pork ribs that are really smoked will have a pink ‘smoke ring’ appearance to the meat inside of the outer searing. The longer that the ribs are smoked, the deeper the pink ring. Most “BBQ Ribs” that you will find here in Vallarta are given a smoke flavor with chemical smoke added to the water that the ribs are boiled in. These fake “smoked ribs” will not have this pink ring (at least until they figure a way to add the color synthetically like they add the fake smoke flavor).
Here is what ribs should look like inside if they are smoked: http://amazingribs.com/tips_and_technique/amazing_ribs_defined.html
THE PROCESS: Our ribs are first rubbed with salt and pepper, then wood-smoked at about 150 degrees f. (65 C.) for a few hours and then charcoal flame seared until the outsides are toasty. The ribs are then braised in their own juices for a couple of hours at 250-300 degrees f. This process is a little labor intensive but it is the best way we have found to produce very tender ribs for people who appreciate natural smoked meat flavor.
Although we have BBQ sauce available, we prepare our ribs without much external flavoring other than a little salt, pepper and real smoke.
“It is a curious and painful fact that almost all the completely futile treatments that have been believed in during the long history of medical folly have been such as caused acute suffering to the patient. When anesthetics were discovered, pious people considered them an attempt to evade the will of God. It was pointed out, however, that when God extracted Adam’s rib He put him into a deep sleep. This proved that anesthetics are all right for men; women, apparently, ought to suffer, because of the curse of Eve.” — Bertrand Russel
“So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh; and the rib which the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.” — Genesis 2,21-22 from the Christian and Judea Bible
