Five Simple Steps to Perfect BBQ Pork Ribs

In my opinion ribs should be full of flavor, moist, and fall of the bone; perfection. Amazingly if you follow a simple five step process you can't fall to get ribs exactly like that. You will however need a grill with a lid, like a kettle barbecue. You do need a little preparation prior to cooking your ribs. You'll need to set-up your grill for indirect cooking. In the case of a charcoal barbecue put all your coals on one side of the grill and none on the other side.

Your first step is to put a barbecue rub over your ribs, on both sides. Make your own rub or buy some and rub it well into the ribs. Then put the ribs in the fridge for at least a couple of hours, or overnight.

Step two is to grill your ribs over direct heat. Remove the ribs from the fridge about 20 minutes prior to cooking and allow to get to room temperature. Grill your ribs for 5 to minutes on each side until they've taken on a nice color.

Step three takes most of the time as you're going to use indirect heat. Grab yourself an oven dish large enough to put the ribs and some liquid into. Put your ribs into the oven dish and pour in some liquid. I usually use about 250 ml of hard cider but you could use other liquid like water, orange juice or cola. Then cover the dish tightly with a double thickness of kitchen foil. Place the dish over the part of the grill with no coals under it, put on the lid of the barbecue, shut the barbecue vents and leave for about an hour. After an hour have a quick check that there's still some liquid in the oven dish. You'll probably see that the meat is pulling back from the bones and you can eat them now if you like but I like to cover them up again after adding more cider if necessary, and cooking for about another hour.

Step four is a final bit of grilling. Take the ribs from the dish and cook over direct heat for about five minutes each side, then put them back over the indirect heat side of the grill and cover the grill.

 Step five is to make some barbecue sauce. Pour remaining liquid out of the oven dish into a pan. Take the pan into your kitchen, put over the heat and make some barbecue sauce by adding whatever you have to hand. Try adding some tomato ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and then simmer to reduce and thicken. When your sauce is ready remove your ribs from the grill, cut into separate ribs, pour over the sauce and serve. This is a really simple way to make BBQ ribs and possibly looks a little more complex than it really is. To make it even simpler if you want you could just buy a good quality barbecue sauce.
