Ingredients

2 racks pork ribs, preferably baby backs or loin backs

Your favorite dry rub, preferably with a brown sugar base

Apple, maple, hickory, or pecan wood chips, optional

Directions

  1. Season ribs generously with your favorite dry rub; a brown sugar blend works wonders for pork ribs. Once ribs are coated in dry rub, place racks together, concave side to concave side. Wrap in foil, and refrigerate for at least 8 and up to 24 hours.
  2. Build coals on 1 end of your grill and prepare grill for cooking.
  3. Preheat grill to 350 degrees F.
  4. Place ribs on the grill on the side opposite of the coals for indirect cooking. Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours at roughly 350 degrees F. You should cook the ribs until they are so tender that the meat falls off of the bone.
  5. Once ribs are tender, remove them from the foil and place them back on the grill, on the side opposite the coals and continue indirectly cooking for 30 to 45 minutes. This is a good time to add wood chips to the coals for smoke flavoring; apple, maple, hickory, or pecan wood chips particularly enhance the taste.
  6. Finally, transfer the ribs to the part of the grill directly over the coals and cook for 15 more minutes, or until the dry rub is caramelized. Serve.
