Making Delicious BBQ Ribs in the Ninja Foodi

 I have loved the Ninja brand for our kitchen appliances in some capacity for years, so I have been wanting to get the Ninja Foodi for about 2 - 3 years now, so I was really excited when I found out that my parents were getting it for me for Christmas! It was a late gift, but well worth the wait!

Are you looking to get a Ninja Foodi?

When it comes to kitchen appliances, I love to save time and have something that will cook it thoroughly but well. The 6.5 quart Ninja Foodi is something that I have been wanting for 2 - 3 years now, but hadn't yet. 

I did some googling to find some good recipes that I want to try out sooner than later, but this one I used just the BBQ portion and water, in the recipe that was in the recipe book that I got with the Foodi. The one that I got is the 6.5 quart Foodi that's the OP300 model, for just $139 at Walmart!

The things I like most about this product are that it has the settings of tender crisp technology which is air fry basically, pressure cook, and slow cooker on it; which eliminates the need for having all three products separately if you own them. I do however use our slow cookers quite often, so I will not be replacing them. I love how it comes with two separate lids too! 

It comes with a pressure cooker lid, as well as the one attached to the Foodi which is the air crisping lid, which is basically the same as air frying I think.

As you can see above, it comes with a 6.5-quart ceramic-coated pot: nonstick which is SUPER easy to clean, even with BBQ sauce on it. I'm very impressed with this pot in particular and absolutely love using this Foodi so far.

I decided that I wanted to make some BBQ ribs for dinner today, so I looked it up in my recipe book and got it all ready to make. It was easy to do once I figured out how to use the settings correctly. 

I put two cups of water in the pot prior to adding the basket to it and closing the lid, so it wouldn't burn.

Setting: Pressure Cook High

Time: 16 minutes

After putting it in and cooking for 16 minutes, it turned out like this. I wanted it a little crisper, so I put air crisp on next. 

Setting: Air Crisp

Time: 2 minutes

I made some mashed potatoes and added green beans to it.
