Charcoal Grill Directions: Season and refrigerate ribs as directed. Prepare grill for indirect medium-low heat (275°F to 300°F). Light about 30 charcoal briquettes in chimney starter or in center of bottom grill. Let stand until briquettes are gray and glowing. Place about 50 briquettes on one side of bottom of grill. Carefully place lit briquettes on top on them. Place aluminum pan filled with water on other side of bottom of grill. Place grilling rack in place. Place ribs, meat side down, on unlit side of grill over pan of water. Close grill. Cook 2 to 3 hours or until ribs are tender. To maintain medium-low heat (275°F to 300°F), keep lid closed and adjust bottom vents as necessary. Add additional briquettes as necessary to maintain temperature.

  • Fantastic flavor! I parboil boneless spare ribs and let them marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours before cooking

  • I have used this several times on baby back or St Louis style ribs. It's very good and easy. I cook them in the oven on a low temperature after wrapping them in aluminum foil.

  • I love this stuff! It's so hard to find at the stores because they're always sold out. Last time I found some, I bought all they had left (9 packets) haha. You need to make larger containers of this stuff!

  • Excellent rub. I grilled my ribs @ 275 to 300 F on a gas grill for 3 1/2 hrs per the directions. Could go up to 4 hours to get them more tender.
