"smoked" BBQ in regular oven?
Okay, I don't have a smoker, plus I'm in an apt. anyway and wouldn't be able to use it, so I decided to try to use the "smoker" technique in the regular oven. So this is what I did:
1. took my country style spare ribs and a boneless pork loin and did a very basic rub on them of salt, pepper and brown sugar. In retrospect, I probably used a bit too much of the brown sugar ... LOL
2. wrapped them up quite tightly with aluminum foil. Ooh, next time I'll make sure I use the heavy duty kind!
3. put them in a low, slow oven: 225 degrees for 6-7 hours.
For the last hour, I added a bottled bbq sauce.
The ribs and loin both came out very moist and tender, falling apart tender. The pork loin could probably have gone a bit longer, but I've got plenty of leftovers. So all in all, it was a complete success and the oven will work if you don't have a fancy smoker!
