Dibs on my Ribs: How do you BBQ Pork Ribs

Ahhhh summer, can you smell the BBQ in the air? I sure did today as I fired up my grill for the first time this year. Today I attempted to grill my first rack of ribs.

I’m definitely not a grilling expert. When it comes to grilling, hubby is usually the one in charge. But today I got to play grill master for the afternoon. The result was pretty tasty.

As a Walmart Mom, I was sent a grilling kit with everything that I needed to grill our ribs. Here’s what I did:

First I chose what woodchips I wanted to use, Apple, and followed the directions for soaking them before we began to grill. Then I went to my local Walmart and picked up a pack of Pork Spareribs to grill. Once home I put together a quick rub to use on our ribs with some of the spices that came in the rib kit while the grill was heating up (we have a charcoal grill).

1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 TBSP McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 TBSP McCormick Grill Mates Sweet & Smokey Rub
Olive Oil
Kraft Thick ‘n Spicy Brown Sugar Barbeque Sauce

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl except for olive oil & BBQ sauce. Before placing our ribs on the grill, I rubbed them liberally with olive oil. Then rubbed them with the spice mixture. To make the ribs easier to handle on the grill I cut the slab in half so I had two sections to work with. I placed the ribs on the grill along with a tin of Apple woodchips. I let them cook for about 3 hrs, rotating and flipping them every 30 minutes to avoid hot spots.

Once the ribs were fully cooked it was time to add the BBQ sauce. I used the Kraft Thick ‘n Spice Brown Sugar BBQ sauce to compliment our rub. I would coat the ribs with BBQ and let it cook for about 15 minutes before flipping them and applying more BBQ sauce. I continued saucing the ribs until there was no more sauce.

The finished result was pretty tasty, for my first time grilling ribs.
