Sweetly Spiced Barbecue Pork Ribs

I'm back!!!  And what of my 20 year high school reunion?  It was a blast!!  I got to see so many people I was hoping to see.  Catching up on what's been going on since high school and reminiscing about what we did in high school was more fun then I could have even imagined.  I have pictures and stories, but I need some time to weed through it all, so hopefully by next week, I'll have a post giving you a quick run down of my time away.

For now, you'll just have to be satisfied with another yummy rib recipe.  These ribs don't look as mouthwatering as some of my others, but do not let that stop you from trying this.  It's simple and perfect and what's great, you can use any sauce you want with these - they would all be good!  I actually made some more of the Memphis BBQ sauce I made with my last set of ribs.  It was perfection!

Sweetly Spiced Barbecue Pork Ribs
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
Printable Recipe 
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 slab pork back ribs
1/2 cup beer
1 Tablespoon barbecue sauce

In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients except the pork ribs, beer and bbq sauce until well combined.  Rub mixture over both sides of the ribs, cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 2 hours.

Preheat grill to 300 degrees F and set up for indirect grilling.  For a gas grill, turn off middle burner.  For a charcoal grill, move charcoal to one side of grill.  Remove the ribs from plastic and place on large squares of heavy duty aluminum foil.  (I cut my slab in half to make things easier)  Mix together the beer and the barbecue sauce and pour over the slab.  Pull the opposite sides of the aluminum foil together and fold to seal.  Seal up both open sides, forming a packet around the ribs.

Place the ribs over indirect heat and let grill 1 hour, turning and rotating packets at least once.  Remove packet from gill and carefully remove ribs.  Place ribs on direct heat (low) for 20-30 minutes or until the ribs are done.  Remove and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.  Enjoy as is or with your favorite sauce!

I wonder if I can get away with this in the toaster oven. Would love me some ribs.

These ribs sound delicious. I have a huge batch of chicken ready to cook and I am going to use that sauce on it today. It's simpler than the one I was planning to use and I already have everything I need for it. Perfect!

Those ribs look sooooo delicious, Jenn! I absolutely do not see anything wrong with them except that they are in a picture and not sitting on my table waiting for me to eat them. I'm so happy to hear you had a great time at your reunion. I will be looking forward to reading about it. Have a wonderful weekend! Stay cool, girl!
