Ribs made the right way in the oven can come out nearly as delicious as those done in a smoker, and with a heaping helping of homemade sauce, you'd often be none the wiser. We've tinkered with this sauce recipe for a while (not a bad job if you can get it!) and are finally really happy with the result - sweet, savory, tangy, and of course, truffle-y.


For the Ribs

For the Sauce

  • Preheat oven to 245F.
  • Prep ribs by removing the membrane on the bottom, then rub all over with both Spicy Smoked Sea Salt and BBQ Sea Salt.
  • Wrap well and roll in foil, making sure the ribs are full covered.
  • Place on a baking tray and pop in the oven for 4 hours. No need to move or adjust it - just leave it be for the duration.
  • Meantime, make your sauce - you want to give it some time in the fridge to for the flavors to get to know each other after you whip it up.
  • It's pretty straightforward - the secret isn't the process, but the ratios. Just add Smoky Dark Chocolate Cane Sugar, Garlic Truffle Steak Rub, vinegar, Worcestershire, and ketchup to a bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Transfer to your serving bowl, cover with saran, and pop in the fridge.
  • You've patiently waited 4 hours - time to serve.
  • Remove ribs, and carefully peel off foil. Rough chop and arrange on a cutting board, then slater with more sauce than makes sense.
  • Get your napkins ready, and dig in!
