2 ounces sea salt 

2 ounces Italian seasoning 

1 ounce freshly ground black pepper 

4 bay leaves 

2 racks buffalo ribs (about 5 pounds each)

4 cups ketchup

1 cup honey

2 ounces horseradish

2 ounces liquid smoke 

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

  3. Pull out the ribs, and rest them for 1 hour, reserving any liquids at the bottom of the pan.
  4. For the sauce: In a large bowl mix the au jus from the baked ribs, the ketchup, honey, cayenne, horseradish, sugar, smoke and some salt and pepper.
  5. Preheat the grill to 350 degrees F. To serve, grill to char the ribs, 5 to 8 minutes. Add on some of the barbecue sauce, and serve.

Cook’s Note

Loulou's Griddle in the Middle uses Black Prince Porter, a delicious local beer, for the marinade.
