  • 2 lemons
  • 1 cup kosher salt

  • 2 bay leaves
  • Prepared glaze, for finishing, optional
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Put the ribs in a large stockpot and fill with enough cold water to cover. Squeeze the lemons into a bowl and strain the juice into the pot; add the lemon rinds as well (remove any seeds). Add the salt, peppercorns and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Boil until the ribs are slightly soft but not falling apart, about 25 minutes.

  • Prepare a grill for high heat.

  • Transfer the ribs to the grill, meatier-side down. Grill for 10 minutes; brush with glaze if you like and then grill another 3 minutes. The finished ribs should be at least 165 degrees F in the center; you don't want to char the meat, but you want it to fall apart.
