Top Techniques for Grilling Ribs


Picture by @thisjewcanque

Grilling ribs can be a bit overwhelming, but in reality it is super simple.  Ask my hubby ... he does all the BBQ-ing in our home!  Here are 5 tips on what he does to make grilling ribs really easy.

  1. He chooses pork ribs over beef ribs.  Pork holds more flavor, super juicy and tender.  Trust me.  The family decided!
  2. Make sure to have apple juice, a spray bottle, bbq season rubbed (you can make your own or get one from Costco).
  3. Rub down the ribs and wrap it in saran wrap a day before you start cooking.  Let the flavors soak in 24 hours.
  4. The following day, start slow cooking in your over first.  200 degrees for about 6-8 hours.  Slow and steady.  When cooking your ribs, make sure it is wrapped in foil to keep all the flavors in.
  5. When done, place the ribs over the grill (meat side first) to get that grilling flavor.  Cook it for about 10-15 minutes on each side.  Spraying apple juice along they way.  This helps with keeping the ribs moist and juicy.

You are done.  Finish your ribs off with BBQ sauce.  Again, homemade is GREAT, but if this is your first time trying it, BBQ from the store works.  Serve over your cutting board you were using.  Want more tips on grilling ribs, check out TODAY's blog on it.  It's pretty spot on!
