grill truly tasty and tender barbequed ribs. Read on and learn How
to Cook Ribs on The Grill.
How to Cook Ribs on The Grill
First of all, one has to pay
close attention to the type of ribs that they are going to barbeque. Whether
they may be baby back, short ribs or spareribs, each
of them come with their own specific recipes and cooking procedures. Being
educated on the qualities of the different kinds of ribs will be helpful in
knowing how to prepare them best.
It is important that the ribs
are properly seasoned. One recommendation is to smother the ribs with a thin
coat of mustard and then apply a liberal dash of seasoning, rubbing it well
into the meat on the ribs. The marinated ribs must then be wrapped and
refrigerated for a period of around 4 to 48 hours.

The next step is cooking the
ribs, that is, the first cooking before the final cooking on the barbeque
grill. There are a number of methods for carrying out the initial cooking. One
option is to cut the ribs into pieces ideal for serving and cooked low on a
slow cooker, such as a Crockpot, for about 10 hours. Another method is to place
the ribs in a large tightly-covered roasting pan and bake it in an oven at a
temperature of 225 degrees for around 6 to 8 hours.
If one chooses to cook the ribs
in an electric roaster, the ribs should be cut in the same way as in the slow
cooker technique and then cook them for a period of around 6 to 8 hours. But
perhaps the easiest way of pre-cooking ribs is to boil them. It is not
necessary to rub the ribs first before doing this method. While boiling in a
large pot, the ribs would be seasoned with bay leaves, celery, garlic, chopped
onions, liquid smoke, and 2 tablespoons of barbecue rub. The heat is cut down
to a simmer afterwards. Depending on the cut, ribs can take around one to 3
hours to cook. For instance, compared to other ribs like baby back, spareribs
take a lot more time to cook when simmered.
For basting the ribs, the lids
on slow cookers and electric roasters envelop the meat’s juices, thus causing them
to “self-baste” repeatedly. In basting oven-baked ribs, they must be kept moist
by basting them every 30 minutes using a “mop,” which is a mixture made up of
either beer or 4 cups of apple cider vinegar combined with 3 tablespoons of
barbeque rub. It is recommended that the first cooking be done one day before
the barbeque, especially if one expects to serve a large number of people.
How Long to Cook Ribs on Your
When the ribs have been cooked
to its preferred tenderness, they are finally ready for barbequing on the
grill. Setting the heat of the grill to medium, the ribs are placed onto the
grill and left to cook for around 5 minutes on both sides. They are then
marinated with the barbeque sauce of one’s choice and the sides are once more cooked
for an additional 5 minutes each. Afterwards, they are left to stand for a few
more minutes to cool them down a bit before serving.
Barbequing takes quite a bit of
work and a whole lot of patience. But one can’t rush perfection, and all the
time and effort expended will be well worth it when the result is a succulent
feast of excellent, tender, mouth-watering grilled ribs.
