This wiki is about how to cook ribs on a barbecue. This is actually a lot easier than it sounds. The hardest part is waiting for the ribs to cook. These steps will usually apply to any recipe that you choose.
- Buy the ribs - Spare ribs are more fatty and will take longer to cook. Baby back ribs are more lean and will cook faster.
- Make the rub - The rub is the spices that you will mix together and rub on the rib to give them flavor
- Make the mop (optional) - A mop is the liquid sauce that you put on the ribs while they are cooking. Some people prefer dry ribs, without a mop. When using a mop, you usually apply it every 45 minutes while the meat is on the grill.
- Trim the ribs and apply the rub - Ribs will usually come with a large membrane on the one side. Most people trim this off with a knife because it prevents the rub from being able to penetrate the meat.
- Grill the ribs at about 300 F (150 C) for 2 to 4 hours - The time depends on the type of ribs you choose.
- Remember to apply the mop, if you made one, every 45 minutes
