How to make Grilled Pork Ribs + Paleo Rub

Let’s get into this delicious recipe. BBQ pork ribs seem intimidating, but rest assured you can do it! I used to think I needed a smoker to make gas grilled ribs, but you totally do not! Although if you have one they are great! So yes all you need is a gas grill to make great ribs! 

Grilled Pork Ribs + Paleo Rub

What you will need 

  • pork ribs
  • dry rub
  • large disposable aluminum tray
  • oil
  • aluminum foil 

Step by Step Directions for Grilled Pork Ribs + Paleo Rub

Remove pork ribs from the packaging and pat dry with paper towels. Spray the aluminum tray with nonstick spray or rub with oil. Remove silver skin from the backside of the ribs. This will help the rub get into the meat easier. Leaving it on also makes the ribs tougher to bite once cooked.

Place ribs in the aluminum tray. Sprinkle some of the rub on the back of the pork ribs. Rub and press it in to really get the meat to absorb the flavor. The rack I was working with was rather big so I cut in half to fit inside the aluminum tray. Flip the ribs over and season the other side. Put as much of the seasonings as will stick to the ribs, don’t worry about the stuff that falls off. Cover the tray with aluminum foil.

Let’s get grilling, we are going to grill these ribs low and slow. Make sure your propane tank has enough! Start by preheating your grill to 300 F degrees. You want to maintain this heat. I do this by keeping my middle burner off, and the other 2 on low. Place the tray of ribs on the grill and cook for about an hour, maintaining 300 f degrees. Cooking the ribs low and slow will bring the meat temperature to about 185 degrees F after the hour, that’s what it should be. 

Carefully remove ribs from the tray and place them on the grill for a nice char, about 3-5 minutes. You can base your ribs with BBQ sauce if you desire. Take ribs off the grill and let them rest 5 mins before serving. To serve ribs carefully cut the ribs using a sharp knife between the bones and serve, enjoy!

Soooo Goood!!!
