- 5 pounds charcoal briquettes (if using charcoal)
- Lighter fluid (if using charcoal)
- 6 pounds pork ribs (baby back or spareribs)
- 1 tablespoon barbecue meat seasoning
- 1 (16-ounce) bottle barbecue sauce
If using charcoal, pile the charcoal in a pyramid. Ignite the charcoal with lighter fluid. Once the top portion of the charcoal has turned white, spread the charcoal out evenly using a fireproof tool such as a metal rake or shovel. Spread the coals over half of the bottom of the grill, leaving the other half empty. (If using a gas grill, only ignite one side of the burners.)
Evenly spread the meat seasoning over both sides of the ribs. Let stand in the refrigerator unless using right away. Place the ribs over the area where there is no charcoal or the side of the grill that is not hot. Cover and turn every 20 minutes for approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours. For the last 10 minutes of cooking, baste ribs with the barbecue sauce and cover again. Turn the ribs over and baste again. Do this every 2 minutes.
While on grill, cut the ribs up individually and baste 1 last time.
