It’s summer and it’s hot which means the last thing I want to do tonight is heat up my oven. One of my favorite summertime dishes is ribs. You can grill them outside, so your kitchen stays nice and cool AND you can eat them outside which keeps the kitchen clean as well. For a long time, I was afraid to tackle making ribs and thought getting them just right was way too hard.
It turns out cooking perfect ribs on the grill is actually really easy!
- 1 rack of ribs
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp Chilli powder
- 1 tbsp Cumin
- 1 tbsp Garlic powder
- 1 tbsp Cyane
- 1 tbsp Ginger
- 1 tbsp Thyme
- 1 tbsp Oregano
- 1 tbsp Paprika
- Mix all seasonings together in a seal-able container and shake well.
- Lay your rack of ribs on a baking tray on top of foil.
- Using Olive Oil rub the oil on both sides lightly just enough to coat the ribs
- Pour 1/2 of the rub on both sides rubbing the rub into the ribs coating it all over
- Repeat for back side
- Seal the foil on all sides and ends so no juice or rub can fall out
- Let sit for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator to marinate
- Preheat your grill to 275-300 degrees
- The key to fall off the bone smoked ribs is to cook them NOT directly on the flames.
- Leave the ribs in the sealed foil and place on the grill
- Grill for 2 hours in the foil
- Remove ribs from the foil and place back on the grill
- Coat the ribs with a LIGHT coating of your favorite BBQ sauce on both sides
- Repeat this process every 15 minutes
- Ribs should be tender to the touch and pull right off with no effort at all!
