Barbecued Moose Ribs

5 pounds moose ribs, fat trimmed

3 cloves garlic, chopped

2 teaspoons salt

1 quart apple juice

water

1-1/2 - 2 bottles Kraft hickory smoke barbecue sauce

Method #I: Pressure cook moose ribs according to cooker directions. Time is usually one hour for moose ribs, less for smaller game. Put first four ingredients in cooker with as much water as needed to cover. When cooking time is complete and pressure has been bled according to cooker instructions, place ribs in a large flat roasting pan and coat each with barbecue sauce. Roast in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Method #2: If you don't have or don't care to use a pressure cooker, place ribs in a large deep pot with garlic, salt, apple juice and as much water as is needed to cover. Simmer for three and one half hours (or until tender). Remove ribs to roasting pan, cover with barbecue sauce and roast 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
