Perfect for parties, picnics, and anytime in between, a batch of Maple BBQ Ribs (don’t forget the napkins) are a real crowd pleaser.

Recently, some of my girlfriends and I hopped in our cars and headed west to a cabin in the Lake George area of New York. Our 3-day weekend consisted of reading on the beach, playing with Michelle’s puppy in the lake, riding around in a boat, and eating these maple barbeque ribs.

With such a relaxing weekend, most of our meals were thrown on the grill to enhance the feeling of summertime through our stomachs. I offered to make dinner one of the nights since I’ve been dying to try this Maple Barbecue Ribs recipe. I wasn’t sure how well the kitchen in the cabin would be stocked, so I planned ahead.

I packed my large cookie sheet, basting brush, and a tupperware container with the sauce in a bag and brought them to Lake George with me. I didn’t know if there would be a grill, so I planned to follow the instructions for cooking the ribs in the oven.

Even though there was a grill, I’m not the most confident griller, so I continued with my original plan. If you like grilling, by all means, follow the grilling instructions instead! Since I wasn’t going to be using the grill, I added one of my favorite ingredients to the sauce – liquid smoke.

Have you seen liquid smoke before? I buy it at my butcher shop but most large grocery stores are starting to carry it. I’ve seen it near the spices and also near where the BBQ sauce is found. Liquid smoke imparts a great smokey flavor to foods that is usually only achieved through grilling or smoking. By adding liquid smoke to sauces or directly to meat, you can cook in or on your oven but still have that great outdoor cooking taste.

This recipe couldn’t have been easier to implement. As I mentioned, I mixed up the sauce ahead of time. Then it was just a matter of patiently waiting while the oven did it’s magic! Us girls really enjoyed the ribs. They’re the kind of meal that you have to dig in to and get your hands dirty which always reminds me of summer!

    Aside from the maple barbecue ribs recipe, which promises to be awesome, were you at Trout Lake just north-east up from Lake George? Your lake beach photo brings back fond memories of our family vacations there.

    Hope to hear back from you.


    P.S. Love your recipes!

    Gerry – I was not at Trout Lake, just Lake George. It was a great weekend and I can’t wait to get back out that way soon!
