Wild Boar Ribs
Lonesome Dove Game Rub
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In a large roasting pan, combine all ingredients except barbecue sauce and salt. Fill with pan with water until all ingredients are covered. Cover pan with plastic wrap, then with aluminum foil. Braise until bones easily remove from rib meat, approximately 10 hours.
- Transfer ribs onto sheet pan and set aside to cool. Preheat grill to medium high heat. Portion ribs into servings and grill for 5 minutes. Brush ribs with barbecue sauce and season with salt to taste.
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Store in an air-tight container.
Lonesome Dove Barbecue Sauce
In a heavy-bottomed sauce pan over high heat, add oil, onion, celery and carrots.
As vegetables brown, add garlic and ancho chiles. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half. Using an immersion blender, puree mixture, then pour through a fine mesh strainer.
