Expert Tips

Look for the pork chops cooking bag and seasoning blend in the spice, meat or gravy section of the supermarket.

If the bag and seasoning mix is unavailable, season the ribs with jerk seasoning and place them in a foil packet for baking.

Use your favorite barbecue sauce in place of the hickory and molasses sauce.

Cooking bags reduce mess and consequently, your clean-up time. They also shorten the grilling time and seal in moisture so the ribs stay tender.
