Bobby Becker’s BBQ Spare Ribs

My stepfather, Robert Becker, was a true lover of life. He embraced it in every way and invited the world to join him in his celebration of it. He loved that I was becoming a chef and did everything he could to encourage my chosen direction. He was infectious with his spirit and anticipated each meal with excitement, passing his passion along to me with each experience. He wasn’t shy at the table, and he taught me that it was OK to pick up food as long as it was on a bone and that licking your fingers was just foreplay before the meal. He loved ribs, and this recipe was one of his favorites.
