There are many cast iron dutch oven rib recipes out there, but this is one of the best and the easiest as far as I am concerned.
Yes, You Can Cook Ribs Over Hot Coals
This cast iron dutch oven recipe is great for a beginner and is perfect for cooking in an oven like I did, or outdoors over hot coals.
To make this rib recipe over a campfire, simply create a bed of hot coals and place the cast iron dutch oven on top of the hot coals.
It still takes the same amount of time to cook, however watch it closer than you do in an oven so if the coals are hotter than you think they are the food doesn’t end up burning.
It is also a good idea to make the sauce up ahead of time, put it in a sealed container and keep it cool until you are ready to use it.
