Materials you will need:

  • Pork ribs (5lbs is recommended)
  • 2 tablespoon of chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1teaspoon of cayenne pepper

Once you have gathered your ingredients and materials, make your ribs:

  • Check what you have first. Before going out to the store and buying the ingredients, check your spice cabinet first to see if you have the listed ingredients. The ingredients are very common. If you do not have them, make a list on what you should buy. Try to purchase fresh pork ribs from a respectable grocery store or meat shop.
  • Create the dry rub for the ribs. On a separate bowl, mix the following ingredients: Chili powder, garlic salt, paprika, ground black pepper and the cayenne pepper. The correct amount of the ingredients can be found above.
  • Preheat the grill. There are different kinds of grills, if you have a gas grill, preheat it on high while if you have a charcoal grill, light the charcoals so you can just cook later and save time.
  • Rub the pork ribs with dry rub. Make sure the whole rib is covered with the rub. Wrap the rib with aluminum foil twice. You can do this in advance to save time so you can just cook them later on.
  • Put the ribs on the grill. You might also want to check the temperature of the grill. For a gas grill, set the temperature to medium. Turn the ribs around occasionally for about an hour or until they are tender enough for you.
  • Remove the ribs from the grill. Carefully remove the tin foil. It is advised that you use pot holders as the ribs are very hot. Put the aside for a while.
  • Oil the grate of the grill. Place the ribs on the grill again. Brush them with barbecue sauce and cover for at least five minutes. Do not wait any longer as you do not want to overcook your ribs.    
  • Turn them over. Brush the ribs again with barbecue sauce and wait for another five minutes. Remove the ribs carefully and place on a plate. Slice them up and they are now ready to be served.

Be sure that you serve them immediately after cooking as the taste might be different or they might dry out after constant re-heating. Enjoy with rice or mashed potatoes. You might also want to make some gravy or serve them with the barbecue sauce you bought to enhance the taste. With little work, you can enjoy tasty barbecue pork ribs without spending too much.
