Grilled Pork Ribs


(1 vote) 5 1

This classic spareribs recipe is cooked entirely on the grill. You can buy a barbecue sauce instead of making your own, if you like. Make sure to boil the remaining sauce after you finished brushing it on the ribs; then serve with the ribs along with lots and lots of napkins!

Prepare grill for indirect cooking, placing drip pan directly under the cooking area. Do not cut ribs into serving pieces. Rub ribs with oil and thyme. Place ribs on grill, cover, and grill 4-6" from medium coals for 60-70 minutes, until meat is no longer pink near the bone. Add more briquettes if necessary after 45 minutes of cooking time to maintain temperature.

While ribs are cooking, make barbecue sauce. Combine ketchup, water, sugar, vinegar, celery seed, Tabasco, and pepper in medium saucepan and heat to boiling. Simmer 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens. Brush this sauce over the ribs during the last 15-20 minutes of grilling time. Heat any remaining sauce to a boil; boil and stir for 1 minute, then serve with ribs.
