Cooking Ribs

Thread starter #1
One of this pigs we shot last week had a lot of meat on the ribs so I decided to give a try at cooking them. Anyone cooked wild hog ribs and have a method that works for you.

Slow and Low......

Low heat.....roaster or smoke. Google search should find you some Great rubs and recipes.

There is food section here that may give you some great tips too
I've cooked some with a dry rub of brown sugar and other spices. Low and slow worked, the meat was still a little tough but it tasted amazing! no gamey flavor at all.
I cook wild hog ribs the same way I cook tame hog ribs. Doesn't usually take quite as long, though. Bear ribs are great done the same way, too.
This is the rub I use...
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup garlic powder
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
2 tablespoons ground ginger powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons rosemary powder

The last time I made them I didn't have the ginger or rosemary and I didn't notice a difference. I paste them with guldens mustard first, then the rub then wrap them in saran wrap over night an smoke em low and slow till the meat pulls from bones. Just a basic, simple recipe and simple way to cook em. Never had a complaint
