Simple Spareribs

Simple SpareribsA simple, down-to-basics rib recipe that yields finger-licking good ribs using your favorite sauce.

Tip: For incredibly tender ribs, after cooking, remove ribs from grill, wrap securely in heavy aluminum foil. Place foil-wrapped ribs in brown paper bags, close bags and let ribs rest for up to 1 hour. Finish getting the rest of your meal together and have some extra sauce on the table.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 slabs pork spareribs, about 6 pounds total
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Kosher or sea salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:

  1. Prepare fire for indirect-heat cooking in a covered grill.
  2. Rub ribs with vegetable oil and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Place ribs, not overlapping, over indirect heat on grill. Close grill hood and cook ribs NOT directly over coals for 1 1/2 hours, until ribs are very tender.
  4. In final minutes of grilling, baste ribs with barbecue sauce.
  5. Cut and serve ribs with remaining sauce on the side.

Makes 6 servings.
