Who says you have to pack up the grill once summer ends? I actually prefer to grill in the fall. The warmth from the grill adds some relief from that brisk air. What better way to warm up and feast than with grilled BBQ Country Style Ribs?!
Grilling makes everything better, especially meat (and corn on the cob – oh my goodness! There’s nothing like a flame grilled meat.
These Grilled BBQ Country Style Ribs are super simple too. All you really need to do is mix up the BBQ sauce, rub the meat with some salt and pepper and slap them on the hot grill. Open a beer, sit back and relax until it’s time to flip ’em.
The beauty is that you can use any sauce or rub you wish. It’s all personal preference. I’ll give you the recipe I use which is just a simple bbq sauce.
Just don’t expect there to be leftovers!
- 4 – 6 pounds country-style pork ribs (about 7 ribs.)
- dry rub of your choice (I use sea salt, red and black pepper and garlic powder)
- [b]1 cup BBQ Sauce:[/b]
- 1/2 ketchup
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
- Combine all ingredients in a medium size sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 40 minutes – 1 hour. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
- Trim the ribs of excess fat and gristle.
- Coat the ribs with the dry rub, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (overnight would be great.)
- Preheat the grill to around 300 degrees F.
- Place the ribs on the grill, spread evenly apart, and close the cover. Allow to cook for 30 minutes and flip. Cook for an additional 20 minutes.
- Brush the BBQ sauce on both sides of the ribs and cook for 15 minutes, flip and then another 15.
- Remove to a platter and allow to set for 15 minutes before serving.
