Grilled Ribs: A Finger-Licking Barbecue Delight

Grilling ribs is an art form that produces tender, flavorful, and fall-off-the-bone goodness. Whether you’re hosting a summer barbecue or craving a smoky and succulent meal, grilled ribs are a go-to option. In this article, we’ll guide you through a delicious grilled ribs recipe that will elevate your barbecue game to new heights.


  • 2 racks of pork baby back ribs
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for spice)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • BBQ sauce of your choice


  1. Preheat your grill to medium heat and prepare it for indirect grilling. If using charcoal, arrange the coals to one side of the grill.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper (if using), salt, and black pepper. This will be your dry rub.
  3. Prepare the ribs by removing the membrane from the back of each rack. To do this, use a knife to loosen a corner of the membrane, then grip it with a paper towel and peel it off.
  4. Sprinkle the dry rub generously over both sides of the ribs, patting it in to ensure it adheres well.
  5. Place the ribs bone-side down on the cooler side of the grill. Close the lid and let them cook for approximately 2 to 2.5 hours, maintaining a temperature of around 275°F (135°C).
  6. After the initial cooking time, brush the ribs with your preferred BBQ sauce on both sides. Return them to the grill, bone-side down, and cook for an additional 30 minutes, basting with sauce occasionally.
  7. Once the ribs are cooked to perfection and the sauce has caramelized, remove them from the grill. Allow them to rest for a few minutes before cutting into individual servings.
  8. Serve the grilled ribs with extra BBQ sauce on the side, along with your favorite side dishes like coleslaw, cornbread, or grilled vegetables.
  9. Dig in and savor the tender and smoky flavors of these delicious grilled ribs.

Note: Cooking times may vary depending on the size of the ribs and the temperature of your grill. Adjust accordingly for optimal results.
