Brown Sugar Pork Ribs
Prep Time20 Minutes
Servings4
Cook Time220 Minutes
Ingredients
2 slabs ribs (spare or baby back)
1 1/2 cup your favorite BBQ sauce
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 tbsp. garlic salt
4 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. celery salt
1/4 tsp. red pepper
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 cup brown sugar
Directions

Food Prep

  • In a small bowl, combine your dry rub ingredients and mix well. Generously apply your dry rub to both sides of your pork ribs.

Grill Prep

  • Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets
  • Method: Two-Zone Method
  • Temp: 250°F (Low Heat)

The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.
  • Place your ribs on the cooler side of the grate, away from the coals. Close the lid on your grill and cook your ribs for 2 hours 15 minutes.
  • Remove your ribs from the grill and place each rack of ribs meat-side down on its own doubled aluminum foil square. The foil should be large enough to completely wrap around each rib.
  • In a small bowl, mix together your apple cider and brown sugar. Pour ½ cup of the liquid over each rib. At the same time, tightly wrap and seal each rack of ribs with aluminum foil. Place your wrapped ribs back on the grill on the cooler side of the grate for 1 hour.
  • Remove your ribs from the grill then unwrap each rack of ribs and discard the foil. Brush both sides of your ribs with your favorite BBQ sauce and place your ribs back on the grill for 5 minutes, or until the sauce caramelizes.
  • Remove your ribs from the grill, allow them to rest for 3 minutes, then cut and serve warm.
