  • 14" Dutch Oven



  • 1 rack ribs trimmed; I used baby back ribs
  • seasoning rub of your choice, I used an applewood rub
  • 1 bell pepper red
  • 1 bell pepper yellow
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 1 bottle bbq sauce of your choice
  • 1 can beef broth



  • Wash and trim ribs.
  • Remove skin on back of ribs. Using a paper towel will make it easier to peal the skin off the back. Dry completely.
  • Apply a light coating of Honey mustard to all surfaces of ribs and coat your ribs with the BBQ rub on all sides.
  • Slice Bell peppers and Onion, place in bottom of Dutch oven.
  • Place rubbed ribs on top of Bell peppers and Onion.
  • Pour BBQ sauce on top of ribs, enough to cover thickly.
  • Pour the whole can of beef broth in the bottom.

Cooking Time

  • Try to cook at least two hours.
  • 350°F seems to be the best for me.
  • Cook up to three hrs and you might have to use a spoon to eat your ribs.


Note: This works really well on a Camp Chef stove with a Dutch Oven dome or if the weather is bad, use your indoor stove.
