Cook Time




This meat, while lean, is well developed and ages very well. The rib meat, especially, has an inherent sweetness that pairs great with any BBQ sauce. The vigorous activity and steady diet of nutrition-packed supplements, proteins, grains and carbs means that the flesh will also have a slightly earthy flavor, and be packed with better-for-you qualities.



  • 2 1/2 lbs. ribs
  • 2 - 18 oz. bottles BBQ sauce
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • 1 Place ribs in a large stock pot with BBQ sauce, onion, salt, and pepper.
  • 2 Pour in enough water to cover.
