These ribs are great for spring and summer grilling. They are also a simple and sure way to get your ribs just perfect. It uses a combination of grilling and smoking, but also requires a lot of patience.
If you have ever tried cooking ribs, you know the hardest thing is trying be cooking them all the way the way through, and keeping them tender without burning them. They key to doing this is slow cooking, and this recipe is made just for that.
- 1 Rack of Ribs
- Dry Rub of Choice
- Foil Pan
- Liquid Smoke
- Marinate your ribs using the dry rub; You will want to do this the night or morning before and make sure that you cover both sides of your ribs evenly with the dry rub. Then wrap your ribs back in plastic and place them in the fridge until it is time to grill.
- Preheat your grill; Your goal will be cook the ribs at 200 degrees. Many grills won’t let you regulate temperature, so if you don’t that’s okay. I use 2 of the 3 burners of low, and help let out some of the heat each time I flip the ribs.
- Place foil pan on the bottom rack. Cover the bottom of the pan in water and add a few drops of liquid smoke.
- Cook the ribs; Place them on the top rack and turn ever 20-30 minutes. Make sure to keep the grill closed, but let out heat as needed, each time you turn the ribs.
