How to Grill Ribs
In order to grill ribs, you’ll need the following:
- BBQ sauce of choice
- seasoning/rub of choice
There’s no ONE way to season your ribs. It’s completely up to you and your tastes. Sometimes we just season well with salt and pepper or seasoned salt. Other times we grab a rub from Walmart (they have loads to choose from). It’s completely up to you. For this recipe, we used a rub. We started by opening our package of ribs and removing them from the packaging.
From there, my husband trimmed the backing off the back of the ribs and then seasoned well with the rub we purchased. You want to carefully wrap your ribs in aluminum foil after seasoning and then place on the grill for about 40 minutes.
We prefer a charcoal grill, but you can do this on a gas grill just as easily.
After 40 minutes, we peel the foil back and check the ribs. If they look done, then we add our BBQ sauce to the top side, remove the foil, and place directly on the grill.
We put them back on the grill for 5 minutes, then flip them over, apply BBQ sauce to the other side, and grill for another 5 minutes. This gets the BBQ sauce nice and caramelized on the ribs.
Pull off after the second 5 minutes has past and admire your hard work!
They smelled SO good and tasted even better!! These St. Louis style pork ribs were super tender and juicy, so no matter the level of experience you have grilling ribs, you can’t go wrong with these!
