Don't boil ribs!
A lot of folks like to boil ribs. Don't do it! When you boil meat and bones, you make soup. That's because water is a solvent and it pulls much of the flavor out of the meat and bones. You wouldn't boil a steak would you?
BBQ Ribs are best when roasted slow at low temps in the presence of smoke and humidity. If you are in a hurry, you are better off steaming or microwaving ribs and then finishing them on the grill or under the broiler. Just don't boil 'em!
