BBQ Pork Belly Ribs
This belly pork ribs recipe is really special because it's cooked like a brisket. This is because the two meats share the same intramuscular fat, which helps them to break down into insanely juicy goodness.
Shopping for Pork Belly Ribs
Ask your butcher to cut you some St Louis pork belly ribs. You can also ask them to trim off any excess fat or cartilage off the ribs. Otherwise, you will have to do it yourself.
Tips for low and slow ribs
These ribs took around five hours to cook, which is short for low and slow, but it’s still a long time to keep one eye on the BBQ.
To keep everything on track, we monitored the meat and pit temperatures using our Signals Wi-Fi and Bluetooth thermometer. The thermometer will alarm whenever your temperatures fall out of range, or your goal temperature has been reached. But you can also monitor it all remotely using our free app, so you don't have to stay by the BBQ for the whole cook.
Keeping the pit temperature consistent is really important for this type of cook, so we paired the Signals with the Billows BBQ control fan. Once we set our desired pit temperature to 130 °C, the Billows brought it up to temperature and kept it there the whole time, adding air every time it started to drop to bring it back on track.
