Hey everyone, today we're going to help chef Gordon Ramsay take his Sweet Sticky rib recipe to another level using our Char-Griller AKORN® Auto-Kamado™! This recipe is awesome because you can be eating ribs in under an hour and a half, and honestly who hasn't wanted to enjoy some BBQ ribs, but didn't have 3 to 6 hours to devote to getting them right? On top of that, we're going to put together a delicious Asian-style flavor spin on these and are using some premium Compart Duroc ribs, which are the same ones I use in competitions. This recipe is pretty different from the traditional BBQ stuff I do but it is really fun and by the end has an awesome old-school BBQ flavor so give this one a shot and tell me what you think about it.

    Fire up the Auto-Kamado to 350˚F with 1 piece of hickory wood and the heat diffuser in place.
