BBQ Ribs

There is nothing quite like BBQ ribs fresh off the grill. The succulent, juicy meat falling off the bone is mouth-watering, and the smoky, flavourful sauce is the perfect finishing touch. This dish is perfect for summer get-togethers and cookouts. With a little bit of preparation, anyone can make delicious BBQ ribs.


-1 rack of pork ribs
-1 bottle of BBQ sauce
-1 tablespoon of paprika
-2 teaspoons of garlic powder
-1 teaspoon of onion powder
-1 teaspoon of black pepper
-1/4 cup of brown sugar
-1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
-1/4 cup of vegetable oil
-1/2 cup of ketchup


1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, about 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, vegetable oil, and ketchup.
3. Rub the ribs all over with the BBQ sauce mixture.
4. Place the ribs on the grill, and cook for about 45 minutes to an hour, or until the ribs are cooked through. Be sure to turn the ribs a few times during cooking so that they don’t burn.
5. Once the ribs are cooked, brush with additional BBQ sauce, if desired, and serve immediately.

Potential changes & improvements

-If you want, you can cook the ribs in the oven first, and then finish them off on the grill. This will help to ensure that they are cooked through.
-For extra flavour, you can smoke the ribs before grilling them.
-If you want a bit more of a kick, you can add some cayenne pepper to the BBQ sauce mixture.

What other food it works well with

BBQ ribs go great with a variety of sides, such as corn on the cob, baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad, and green salad.

Common Mistakes

One common mistake people make when making BBQ ribs is not cooking them long enough. ribs need to be cooked slowly and low so that the meat is tender and falling off the bone. Another mistake is not using enough BBQ sauce, or not using the right kind of BBQ sauce. Be sure to use a sauce that you like the taste of, and that has enough flavour. Lastly, make sure not to overcook the ribs, or they will be dry and tough.
