Sink your teeth into this competition ribs recipe

competition ribs recipe

Did you know you don’t actually need to be a barbecue master to make real competition-level ribs? Yes, even you can cook up these amazing ribs. And if you’re already a skilled pitmaster? I’m confident my ribs recipe will satisfy even the best out there.

Remember: in a real competition, you need to wow the judges in a couple of bites. So your ribs needs to pack a big punch in flavor. This is a tricky balance to get, because ribs that are too spicy, sweet or salty won’t please anyone. The trick is to create rich, agreeable flavor without sacrificing balance.

So check out my competition ribs recipe, cook it up and tell me how it went.
