BBQ Joe’s Vietnam
Pork Ribs

BBQ Joe’s Notes …

• I prefer smaller ribs “baby back” … but the Larger St. Louis Style cut are good too !
• I get my ribs from Meat Works in Thao Dien District 2
• Be sure to remove the inside skin from the ribs
• Wash the ribs. Pat dry with paper towel. Moist … then …
• Put the rub on generously. Let the ribs sit in the fridge overnight.
• Next morning, put out and let them warm to room temperature before putting on the grill.



Rib Rub Grind together in a mixer bowl until the ingredients are well mixed.
