Here's a simple recipe and a simple way on how to grill pork ribs on a gas grill, or for that matter, any kind of grill.
This is not a recipe for Baby-Back ribs. The ribs that I'm barbecuing here are more like Pork Chops. They are pretty good size, very lean and have what looks like a T-Bone.
In the above photo, please note that there is a water pan, filled with water between the pork ribs and the main gas grill. This is a form of indirect cooking.
Don't let this method of barbecuing turn you off. It's worth it. Please read my Ezine Article. You can even add a "smoky flavor" on a gas barbecue if you want. The article tells you how.
Having a water pan between the heat and the pork ribs keeps them from burning during the cooking process. Hey, it also adds moisture, and flavor to the pork ribs.
You can buy an accessory grill and large shallow pan at most hardware stores. Make sure that whatever size you purchase is larger than whatever you will want to barbecue, or anything hanging over the edge of the pan will burn big time. What to do? What do do? What to do?
Ingredients: Pork Ribs, � Cup Sodium-free Soy Sauce, Teaspoon of Crushed Garlic, Large Tablespoon of Ground Ginger
Prep: Wash and pat dry pork ribs. Place all ingredients in a marinating container, or large plastic sack. Shake, rattle, and roll over night.
When you are ready to barbecue. You are ready to BBQ, right? Let the ribs sit out about 30 minutes before you are ready to put them on the BBQ. Fire up your grill and get up to 400 degrees, plus.
Cooking times will be longer because of the water pan. Unless you run out of water, or have the ribs hanging over the edge of the pan they won't burn.
Place the water pan in the center of the main grill. (See the Brinkmann Water Pan) You can find a circular grill (Cooking Grid) to fit over the 13.5 inch pan at the local hardware store. Fill the pan with hot water, and also add whatever marinade you have leftover to the pan.
Shut the hood! (as Foghorn Leghorn would say: "Hey, I mean, I mean shut the hood on the grill and keep it closed!") Cooking time will be approximately two hours for six large ribs. In the last fifteen minutes or so if you want to add a nice BBQ sauce, you can. I prefer to mist on an apple juice, vinegar mix with a spray bottle for additional flavor.
Check the pork ribs for doneness. They should reach an internal temperature of 170 degrees. If you, yourself reach an internal temperature of 170...you're done!
Once cooked, wrap the pork ribs in foil and set them aside for 30 minutes before serving. Serve grilled pineapple and fruit on the side. And, how about some grilled veggies, too?
I hope you were paying attention because this is a super duper method on how to grill pork ribs. Try em', you'll just love em'!
