These great barbeque ribs are really easy to make. The ribs are really juicy and fall off the bone but don't require boiling or time in the oven! Additionally, the ribs are great as leftovers! One word of caution is that they can be a bit spicy. You can adjust the amount of dry rub you use to make the ribs more or less spicy. Pairing the ribs with homemade bbq sauce makes a perfect combo!
Check your spice cabinet and see what ingredients you need. Purchase the ribs, any spices that you need and barbeque sauce (or make your own).
Make the dry rub for the ribs. Combine the following: 2 tablespoons chili powder, 1 tablespoon garlic salt, 1 tablespoon paprika, 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper, and 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
If you have a gas grill, pre-heat it on high. If you have a charcoal grill, light the charcoals.
Rub the ribs with the dry rub. Wrap each slab tightly in a double thickness of aluminum foil. If you are doing this for a party this step can be done ahead.
Check on the grill. If it's a gas grill, turn the heat down to medium. If it's charcoal, make sure the charcoal's have a white ash on them.
Put the ribs on the grill, turning occasionally for about an hour or until they are tender.
Remove the ribs from the grill. Turn up the heat to high if it's gas or add more charcoal's to make the heat higher.
Lightly oil the grate. Remove the ribs from the foil (you may want to use old pot holders for this part) and place on the grill.
Brush the ribs with bbq sauce (see link to recipe below) and cover for 5 minutes.
Turn the ribs, brush the other side and cover for 5 minutes so the ribs are glazed on both sides.
Remove the ribs, cut and serve. If you are waiting for other ingredients to finish cooking you can put them in a warm over, but be careful not to for too long and dry them out!
