Well Summer is here and people have taken the cooking outside. I am like every other red blooded American and love to cook on the grill. I am a propane griller and go through about 3 to 4 tanks a year.
With that said I will give you some tips on BBQing ribs, heck I am going to give you step by step on what I do.
I consider ribs the divas of the grilling meats. It needs alot of preperation and care but it will be well worth it. You can’t just throw the meat on the fire and expect them to be tender and juicey. There is about 4 hours to make these ribs awesome.
1st is the dry rub. I like a balace with a little kick to my rub. Here is my rib rub.
1 tablespoon of : Campdog Cajun Seasoning garlic powder/ garlic pepper/ salt/ peperika
2 teaspoons of: Chili powder/ sugar/ celary salt/ basil
1 teaspoon of: orgeno/ fresh ground pepper
mix these ingregents will in a bowl well.
Rub the rub in the meat, both sides put in a broiler pan and cover with some tin foil. Let the meat rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
Now the weird part…I bake my ribs before I get them on the grill.
After the meat is rested I add a liquid mixture that is premade is consists of:
2 cups of water, 2 tablespoons of apple vinegar, a teaspoon of sugar and 1/4 teaspoons of mesiqute liquid smoke stir until sugar is disolved.
Next step is I put just a ultra thin layer of extra virgin Olive Oil on the ribs.
I put the liquid in the pan and recover the tin foil and place the meat in the 300 degree pre heated oven for 2 hours.
After the 2 hour mark turn off the oven and take the ribs out. Flip them and leave the foil off. Put them back in the oven to rest for a half an hour, start the grill.
This is when I make my potaoes and onions on the grill which is simple cut some red potatoes very thin, put garlic, seasoning salt, pepper and Zenders chicken seasoning, yeah I know what you’re thinking but trust me, the chicken seasoning really gives that extra taste that makes them awesome. I put a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a spoonful of butter, cut the onions thick, wrap them up in foil on out them on the grill. I put the taters and onions on the grill for 1/2 hour on medium heat. at the 20 minute mark turn the grill to low, for the ribs.
Now it’s time to put the ribs on the grill, take the whole pan out with ya along with a paint brush , BBQ sauce and some tongs . Place the ribs on the grill, slather the BBQ sauce on then drop about a quarter of the juice left over from the baking, I don’t know if it does anything but I have always done it and it seemd like I have really moist ribs.
Now the ribs are already cooked the grill step is just to coat the ribs with suace and soak up the sauce in the meat. I use the 5, 3,1 method. I slather the sauce on one side 5 minutes flip and brush on the other side, then 3 minutes each step putting the liquid on the grill the last one minute will coat the ribs.
That’s it I have corn as my vegtable, either on the cob or in the can.
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
