How to Grill Ribs as Succulent and Juicy as the Finest Rib Shack
How to Grill Baby Back Ribs
For the marinade:
3/4 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup sugar, divided
6 tablespoons cider vinegar
6 tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
For the meat:
2 racks baby-rack ribs (about 4-1/2 pounds)
For the spice rub:
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Dash cayenne pepper
Step 1: Prep the meat
Most store-bought ribs have what’s known as silverskin, a membrane over the underside of the ribs. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, your butcher will remove it for you. Otherwise, you need to remove it before you cook. Don’t panic, it’s simple to do.
Insert a knife between the membrane and the meat at one end of the ribs. Be careful not to pierce the membrane. Work your fingers under the skin to loosen it. Now you’re going to tug it off. Wrap a paper towel around your hand so you can get a good grip. Gently but firmly, pull off the silverskin. It should peel off quite cleanly.
Step 2: Make the marinade
Pork is tasty as is, but marinading the meat enhances that flavor. It adds a deep savoriness that makes the meat more satisfying and delicious (meaning you won’t need to douse it in barbecue sauce, unless that’s your thing).
Making a marinade is easy. It’s really just stirring together a variety of liquids and spices and letting the meat soak in them overnight. For this recipe, combine the broth, soy sauce, ½ cup sugar, vinegar, olive oil and garlic in a bowl or measuring cup with a pour spout. Place the ribs in a shallow baking dish (we like our trusty 13×9). Pour two-thirds of the marinade over the meat. Turn to coat both sides, then refrigerate overnight. Turn the meat occasionally, to ensure that the meat is marinading evenly. (No need to get out of bed to do this. Just turn at night just before bedtime and turn again in the morning.)
Don’t toss that remaining marinade. Cover and refrigerate it. You’ll use it while you’re grilling.
Step 3: Treat the meat to a spice rub
Trust us: You want to add the spice rub. Like making the marinade, it’s simple to prep, just tossing some ingredients together in a bowl. Here, we use the remaining ½ cup sugar, plus salt and seasonings.
Take the ribs out of the fridge. Drain and discard the marinade from the 13×9. Pat the ribs dry (this helps the spice rub stick). Rub the spice mixture over all sides of the ribs, patting with your fingertips to encourage it to adhere.
Step 4: Grill
Ribs should be cooked low and slow. For most of the cooking, the ribs stay over indirect heat. If you’re cooking over a too-hot grill, the meat will dry out.
First, oil the grill.(Have a charcoal grill like we do? Use these tips to make it gas-grill easy.)
Place the ribs right on the grill, using tongs to maneuver them into place. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 30 minutes on each side.
After the first hour, move the ribs to direct medium heat and cook 20-40 minutes longer, or until the pork is tender (more on this in a minute).
Occasionally, turn and baste with the reserved marinade (or barbecue sauce, if you prefer).
Test Kitchen tip: Once you start to baste with the sauce, keep a watchful eye on it in case the sugars start to caramelize (brown) quickly. You’d hate to burn the ribs now after all your preparations up to this point. This is why we wait to baste until the end of the cooking time.
Step 5: Test for doneness
As we discussed above, you don’t want ribs to fall off the bone. Start testing for doneness once the meat begins to pull away from the ends of the bones. This visual cue means it’s time to test. Pierce the meat with a fork. The tines should glide through easily. You also can twist a rib bone a little bit; you should feel it give easily but not fall apart from the meat. (If the meat falls off the bone, your ribs are overcooked. Remove from heat right away and make sure to have sauce at the table in case they’re a bit dry. Don’t beat yourself up! Next time, remember to check earlier.)
Step 6: Serve
By now, you’ve certainly built up an appetite. To serve the ribs, you’ll want to split them up into manageable portions. Using a sharp chef’s knife, carefully cut them into two-bone sections. Make the cuts as close to the bone as possible so there’s a lot of meat on each one.
