Camping Dutch Oven BBQ Ribs

A lazy day around camp also means tender mouth-watering Camping Dutch Oven BBQ Ribs are on the dinner menu! The meat simmers in sauce about 6 hours … maintaining the charcoal briquettes or campfire requires a little tending throughout the day but the outcome is worth it! Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

Make The Sauce

The secret to these awesome ribs is the sauce! For easier campsite cooking, you can fully prepare the sauce at home … then you just need to cook the ribs at camp. If you do that, you will need to refrigerate the sauce until you are ready to cook the ribs. As an alternative, you can measure and mix the dry ingredients at home and then assemble the sauce at camp … this is what I like to do.

Build The Sauce in a large saucepan over medium heat melt butter … then … add veggies.

  • 4 tablespoons butter

Then Sauté Until Tender

  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

Now Add The Wet Ingredients and stir until incorporated.

  • 3 cups ketchup
  • 29 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 2 ½ cups red wine vinegar
  • 1 cup unsulfured molasses
  • 3 tablespoons hickory flavor liquid smoke

Now Add The Dry Ingredients I measure and mix the dry ingredients at home and just transport them in a sealed container to the campsite.

  • 2 ½ cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper

Thicken The Sauce, reduce the heat to low and stir occasionally, simmer about 20 minutes or till desired thickness (shorter cooking time = thinner sauce, the longer you cook it, the thicker it will become.) Camp Cooking Tip: If you prepare the sauce at home, keep it refrigerated (up to a week) until ready to use.

Time To Cook Your Camping Dutch Oven BBQ Ribs

Prepare The Meat, remove silverskin and cut slabs

Cut the silverskin off from the back of the ribs. You can use a butter knife to pull it up pretty easily. Depending on where you purchase your ribs, the silverskin may already be removed which is always a nice thing! Cut the rack to fit into the Dutch oven; 4-5 ribs per cut works well.

  • 3 baby back rib racks (NOTE: If you don’t have a deep 12″ Dutch oven and you are using a regular 12” Dutch oven, you may only be able to fit 2 – 2 ½ racks of ribs.)

Prepare For Cooking

In deep 12” Dutch oven, cover 3 cut racks of baby back ribs with BBQ sauce. Camp Cooking Tip: The key to these Camping Dutch Oven BBQ Ribs being super tender is keeping them submerged in the sauce throughout the cooking process. If you can’t get all of the ribs in the sauce, rotate them throughout the cooking process pulling the ribs from the bottom and placing them on top every half hour or so.

Cook The Ribs

Simmer for 4-6 hours (6 is better, so make sure you start this meal early enough to get maximum flavor and tenderness out of this recipe.) You can use charcoal briquettes or a campfire to cook this Camping Dutch Oven BBQ Ribs recipe; either way, you want to monitor the heat throughout the cooking process to cook them at a simmer.
