Ingredients

Ham Hock Stock: 

10 pounds smoked ham hocks

5 pounds fresh ham hocks

Assorted Barbecued Ribs:

2 small slabs beef shortribs

1 slab of pork spareribs

1 to 2 slabs baby back ribs

2 gallons of hot ham hock stock

2 large onions, peeled and quartered

2 roasted cinnamon sticks

4 bulbs of split roasted garlic

4 serrano peppers, split

1 jalapeno pepper, split

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. For the stock: Place ham hocks in a stockpot large enough to hold them, leaving 4 inches of room at the top of the pot. Cover with cold water. Bring to a simmer over a medium flame. Skim all the foam off the top. Reduce heat to low and simmer, skimming occasionally for 8 to 10 hours. Strain the stock carefully, as the hock meat will be falling off the bone. Reserve the hock meat for other uses.
  2. For the ribs: Use a paring knife to peel the silver skin off the inside of the ribs. Bring the ham hock stock, the vegetables and the cinnamon sticks to a simmer over a medium-low flame. Add the beef short ribs and simmer 20 minutes. Add the spareribs and baby back ribs, then simmer 45 minutes to 1 hour longer, or until the ribs are very tender. Carefully remove the ribs from the stock and season on both sides with salt and pepper while hot. Save the stock to reduce for barbecue sauce for other uses. When the ribs come to room temperature, brush with your favorite barbecue sauce. Refrigerate until barbecue time. Preheat oven to 400 degrees or fire up your charcoal grill. Cook the ribs, basting occasionally until the meat is hot and falling off the bone.
