BBQ Beef Ribs

Delicious, sticky beef ribs are easy to make on your grill.  Use indirect heat so they don't burn or dry out.  Rotate the ribs from time-to-time so that they cook evenly.



Drizzle ribs with olive oil.  Combine the salt, pepper and the cayenne pepper.  Rub over the ribs.  Preheat grill for indirect grilling and be sure to use a drip pan.  Place ribs on grill over drip pan and close the lid.  If using an oven, bake at 325F instead.

Cook for about 1 to 1-1/2 hours over a low, indirect heat. 

To prepare the sauce combine onion, honey, vinegar, ketchup, garlic and mustard in a sauce pan.  Heat over a low temperature, stirring until even and warm.  When the ribs are nearly finished begin brushing the sauce on them until you get a thick coating.


This sticky beef rib recipe is so delicious it'll make you say "oh yeah," through the whole meal! The sauce is sweet, spicy, and slightly tart from the apple cider vinegar. Try this recipe at your next cookout and watch how your guests come back for more.

Basting Sauce INGREDIENTS:
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup barbecue sauce ( your favorite brand)
1/4 cup cola
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Rib rub:
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1/2 tablespoon white pepper
1 teapoon Spike seasoning
2 pounds beef ribs


To prepare sauce: combine all sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Let mixture come to a boil and then reduce and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. If sauce is too thick, add 2-3 tablespoons water. Remove sauce from heat and set aside.

To prepare ribs: take thawed ribs out of packaging and place in large pot with water.

Par-boil the ribs for 5 minutes and remove them onto a baking sheet. You might need to do the ribs in batches since they can be so large. After ribs are par-boiled, apply rib rub to each side of ribs.
Preheat grill. Place beef ribs on grill and cook over medium-low heat. Turn and baste ribs every 15 minutes, until finished cooking, about an 1 1/2 hours. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
