Ultimate Barbecue Ribs Recipe



Discover the secrets to perfect ribs with this ultimate barbecue ribs recipe. Tender, flavorful, and coated with a mouthwatering sauce, these ribs are a barbecue masterpiece.

Prepare the Ribs

Start by removing the membrane from the back of the ribs. This ensures they are tender and allows the flavors to penetrate the meat.

Make the Dry Rub

In a bowl, combine brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, salt, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. Mix well to create the dry rub.

Season the Ribs

Generously coat both sides of the ribs with the dry rub, pressing it into the meat to ensure even coverage. Let the ribs sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to absorb the flavors.

Preheat the Grill

Preheat your grill to 225°F (110°C) for low and slow cooking. If using a charcoal grill, set it up for indirect heat.

Grill the Ribs

Place the ribs on the grill, bone side down. Close the lid and cook for 3-4 hours, maintaining a consistent temperature. For added flavor, you can add wood chips to the grill.

Baste with Barbecue

During the last 30 minutes of cooking, baste the ribs with your favorite barbecue sauce. This creates a sticky, flavorful glaze that enhances the ribs.

Rest and Slice

Once the ribs are tender and cooked through, remove them from the grill and let them rest for 10 minutes. This helps the juices redistribute, ensuring moist and flavorful ribs.
