Nothing says BBQ more than BBQ Ribs. American barbecue has many forms and styles, but the pork rib just might be barbecue’s most enduring icon. This is certainly true in New York, where over the past decade, high-pedigree barbecue restaurants have grown into a cadre of low-and-slow cooking. And while each of Manhattan’s major smokehouses has a different take on the barbecue renaissance, every one serves a rack of pork ribs. It’s an ideal entry point into any smokehouse’s menu, versatile enough for a range of recipes but fundamental enough to be a standard bearer for the barbecue tradition.

Ingredients:

2 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 pounds baby back pork ribs (8 racks) or St. Louis-style spareribs (4 racks)
Low-salt chicken broth (optional)
1 1/2 cups store-bought or St. Louis style homemade barbecue sauce plus more

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Place each rack of ribs on a double layer of foil; sprinkle rub all over ribs. Wrap racks individually and divide between 2 baking sheets.

2. Bake ribs until very tender but not falling apart, about 2 hours for baby backs and 3 hours for spareribs. Carefully unwrap ribs; pour any juices from foil into a 4-cup heatproof measuring cup; reserve juices. Let ribs cool completely. DO AHEAD: Ribs can be baked up to 3 days ahead (the flavor will be more developed, and the cold ribs will hold together better on the grill as they heat through). Cover and chill juices. Rewrap ribs in foil and chill

3. Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to high. Add broth or water to rib juices, if needed, to measure 1 1/2 cups. Whisk in barbecue sauce to blend.

4. Grill ribs, basting with barbecue sauce mixture and turning frequently, until lacquered and charred in places and heated through, 7-10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board; cut between ribs to separate. Transfer to a platter and serve with additional barbecue sauce.
