For the Ribs:

  • 2 racks of baby back ribs (approximately 4-5 pounds)
  • Dry rub of your choice (such as a combination of paprika, brown sugar, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper)
  • Barbecue sauce (either store-bought or homemade)

For the Barbecue Sauce (optional, if making homemade):

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Note: Feel free to adjust the quantities and flavors of the dry rub and barbecue sauce based on your personal preferences and desired level of spiciness.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Preparing the Ribs:
    • Start by removing the membrane from the back of the ribs. Use a knife to loosen it at one end, then grip it with a paper towel and peel it off.
    • Rinse the ribs under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels.
    • Rub the dry rub mixture generously over both sides of the ribs, ensuring an even coating. Let them sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.
  2. Preparing the Grill:
    • Preheat your grill to medium heat, targeting a temperature of around 275-300°F (135-150°C) for indirect cooking.
    • If using a charcoal grill, set up a two-zone fire by arranging the coals on one side of the grill, leaving the other side empty. This will create an area for indirect cooking.
    • If using a gas grill, preheat all burners initially and then turn off one side to create the indirect heat zone.
  3. Cooking the Ribs:
    • Place the racks of ribs bone-side down on the indirect heat zone of the grill. Close the lid and let them cook for about 2-3 hours, maintaining a consistent temperature.
    • After the initial cooking time, baste the ribs with your chosen barbecue sauce on both sides, using a brush or a spoon. This will add a sweet and tangy glaze to the meat.
    • Continue cooking the ribs, flipping and basting occasionally, for an additional 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until the meat is tender and has reached your desired level of doneness.
    • Optional: For some extra caramelization and char, you can briefly move the ribs to the direct heat zone of the grill, bone-side down, for a few minutes, turning them once or twice.
  4. Resting and Serving:
    • Once cooked, transfer the ribs to a cutting board and let them rest for about 10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a moist and flavorful result.
    • Slice the racks of ribs between the bones into individual servings.
    • Serve the succulent ribs hot, accompanied by additional barbecue sauce on the side for dipping, and your choice of sides like cornbread, coleslaw, or grilled vegetables.
