INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 Rub Applewood Rub evenly over both sides of ribs.
  • 2 Prepare grill for indirect medium-low heat (275°F to 300°F). Preheat grill by turning all burners to high. Turn burner on 1 side to medium-high. Turn off burner(s) on other side. Know Your Heat : See Grill Mates® Know Your Heat for more information on how to grill over indirect heat.
  • 3 Place ribs on unlit side of grill. Close grill.
  • 4 Grill 2 to 3 hours or until ribs are tender. How to Maintain Medium-Low Heat : To maintain medium-low heat (275°F to 300°F), keep lid closed and adjust lit burner as necessary. Directions were developed using a gas grill. Grills vary; cooking time is approximate.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Easy Mop Sauce : Baste ribs with this Easy Mop Sauce to keep them moist while grilling. Mix 1 cup each cider vinegar and apple juice, and 1/2 teaspoon each McCormick® Crushed Red Pepper and Coarse Ground Black Pepper. Let stand before using.

Rib Oven Directions : Rub ribs as directed. Place in single layer on foil-lined baking pan. Cover with foil. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 1 1/2 hours or until meat starts to pull away from bones. Broil 2 to 3 minutes or until browned.
