Info
To most people buccaneer means pirate and had nothing to do with cooking. It certainly did to me until I found this recipe. The term was actually derived because these pirates adopted a native Caribbean style of cooking called Boucon that used fruits and hot spices to preserve the meat. The meat was cooked using fruitwood. The history lesson & the rib recipe came from Steven Raichlen’s Ribs, Rib,Ribs. It used 3 stages: First the ribs were marinaded overnight in using a sweet & spicy marinade. The ribs were then slow smoked. Finally the ribs were basted with a tangy BBQ sauce. The ribs surprised me in two ways. The marinade gave the meat a nice flavor, but I did not detect any sign of the hot peppers used. The second was the rum based BBQ sauce. When I tasted it for seasoning I was surprised as it was not at all what I expected. You put it on the ribs and it all comes together and makes sense.. These ribs are a great change of pace and turned out moist from the overnight marinade and tasty from the marinade ad BBQ sauce.
