How to Barbeque Ribs – Allrecipes
How long should you BBQ ribs?
How long does it take to cook ribs on the grill? Depending on the heat of your grill, your ribs should take about 1½ to 2 hours in total. Use visual cues to know when your ribs are done—you want them to be tender and easily pierced with a fork, but not completely falling off the bone.
Should you prep ribs the night before?
(Keep in refrigerator if holding them overnight.) (It’s good to prepare the ribs the night before if you need to get them on the smoker bright and early the next day. Just take them out of the refrigerator before preparing the smoker.)
How long should you soak ribs in vinegar?
For best results, leave the ribs in the vinegar marinade for 20-30 minutes. If you’ve mixed the vinegar with water or other ingredients (see Soaking Ribs in Vinegar and Water, below), you can get away with a longer soaking time.
Do you have to remove the membrane from baby back ribs?
Whether you’re cooking pork baby backs or spareribs, you’ll want to be sure that the membrane, or silverskin, covering the bone side of each rack gets removed. If left on, it keeps seasonings and smoke from penetrating the meat, and it cooks into an unpleasant leathery skin on the ribs.
What do you spray on ribs when smoking?
A spritz is simply a spray bottle with liquid. In our case, it’s equal parts apple cider vinegar and water (you can also add equal parts apple cider vinegar and apple juice for a little more sweetness). Start spritzing after the first 90 minutes.
Should I marinate ribs in BBQ sauce?
Again, it’s not necessary to brine or marinate ribs. You can simply season a rack of ribs with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, smoke them low and slow, and slather on your favorite style of barbecue sauce when you’re done.
How long do ribs take to cook on BBQ?
Spareribs are meatier and will take about 4 to 5 hours depending on your grill. Baby back ribs will take between 3 to 4 hours to cook.
What side do you cook ribs first?
It’s generally better to smoke ribs with the bone side facing down. The heat source is usually located below the cooking grate, and ribs fare better when they’re cooked over indirect heat. Cooking them with the meat side up also imparts a strong smoke flavor to the bones themselves. What is this?
