Keto BBQ Ribs Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 pounds pork ribs
  • 1 cup keto barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • heavy-duty aluminum foil
  • 2 cups wood chips
  • water
  • vegetable oil

Keto BBQ Ribs Recipe Instructions

  1. Combine kosher salt, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, ginger, and pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Place one layer of aluminum foil on a baking sheet, leaving a 2-inch overhang on all sides.
  3. Using a paper towel, pat the ribs dry and massage the spice mixture into both sides of the ribs. Place the rib racks on the prepared baking sheet, meaty side up. Cover with extra aluminum foil, crimping the edges firmly. Refrigerate for 8 to 24 hours before serving.
  4. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).
  5. Bake for 4 hours on the middle rack of the oven with the covered baking sheet. Remove the ribs from the oven and set them aside to rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Fill a dish halfway with water and add the wood chips—Preheat a medium-hot outside grill.
  7. Drain the wood chips and arrange them in an aluminum foil package with many holes. Close the lid and place the wood chip package on the grill's hottest area.
  8. Oil the grate where the rib racks will go after the chips have started to smoke. Place the rib racks on the greased grate. After removing the ribs from the foil—brush half of the barbecue sauce on the chicken. Close the cover and cook for 5–10 minutes, keeping an eye out for flare-ups. Turn the ribs over and baste with the leftover barbecue sauce.
  9. Close the cover and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, keeping an eye out for flare-ups. Continue rotating and basting until the ribs are the color you want. Slice the rib racks into pieces and serve with more barbecue sauce on the side.

How to Properly Store Pork

How long can cooked pork be stored in a refrigerator or freezer?

That relies upon several conditions, but pork, once cooked, should be refrigerated within 2 hours. To maximize the shelf life of cooked pork for protection and exceptional quality, refrigerate the pork in shallow bins or wrap it tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. The cooked pork will remain for three to four days in the fridge.

To further increase the shelf life of cooked pork, freeze it. Store the cooked pork in plastic storage bins or heavy ziplock freezer bags, or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or freezer wrap.

How long does cooked pork remain withinside the freezer?

Properly stored, it'll preserve the quality of the pork for approximately four months; however, it will continue to be edible past that time. The freezer time given is for the best quality of the meat. Cooked pork that is continuously frozen will preserve indefinitely.

For the best freezer results, look at getting a vacuum sealer like this one: Get a Vacuum Sealer Here on Amazon

How long does cooked pork remain after being frozen and thawed? 

Cooked pork that properly thaws out in the refrigerator will be edible for three to four days. Cooked pork thawed in the microwave or in bloodless has no other shelf life and should be consumed immediately.

How long does cooked pork store at room temperature?

Bacteria develop hastily at temperatures between 40°F and 140°F; cooked pork must be discarded if left out for more than two hours at improper temperatures.

How to know if cooked pork has good bad?

The most common manner is to smell and examine the pork. Most symptoms of bad pork include:

  • bitter scent
  • slimy texture
