Grilled Ribs Recipe
If you know me at all you know I don’t do difficult, so believe me this is a pretty easy recipe to follow. First you need to get your rack of ribs out and remove the membrane on the ribs.
This will make them easier to eat and more tender. Then flip it over and trim the fat away like you see here.
Put your rack of ribs on a sturdy Chinet® Classic White™ plates and set aside for now. You’ll need a strong disposable plate for prep and serving because ribs can be quite hefty.
These work great! Now you are going to get your rub ready. This part is versatile depending on how much heat you want but the base of this rub for ribs remains the same. It is sweet yet a bit spicy and makes them taste amazing. Here’s the recipe.
Barbecue ribs recipe
- 1 rack of ribs – we prefer pork because they come out more tender
- Brown sugar
- Chili powder
- Garlic powder
I do not like spicy foods but I love this rub so if you want heat add another tsp. chili powder to really bring it up a notch. Once you have rubbed or massaged this on to the meat side of your rack of ribs wrap them in tinfoil and put them on your barbecue on low, or at about 200 degrees.
Remember….you want them to cook slooooooowly.
Leave them wrapped in foil in your bbq for about 4 hours on this low heat them unwrap them and put them directly on your grill for about 30 minutes so they can brown and the rub can caramelize.
Then brush some barbecue sauce on top and cook for another 15 minutes or so and then they are ready!!
