I've waited for a long time to post a rib recipe for the grill and this is for sure my go-to recipe.
1 1/2teaspoonsGarlic Powder
1 1/2teaspoonsOnion Powder
1RackBaby Back RibsPork
1/4 CupApple Juice
For The Rub
Combine all the ingredients in a jar, and give it a good shaking.
It doesn't matter what order you go in. Make sure you label the jar with the date you made the rub. Typically two months is a good shelf life for your homemade rubs. Enjoy!
For The Ribs
Flip the ribs over and using a knife, pierce the silver skin of the ribs and pull it up a little. Use a paper towel and a firm grip to pull off the membrane.
In a small bowl, mix together the mustard and apple juice.
Slather the ribs in the mustard mixture then coat evenly with spices. Do not use all of the dry rub as it makes a lot. Just save the rest in a jar for another day.
Heat the grill to 225 degrees. If you can have indirect heat by not lighting certain burners on your grill this is best. Add the ribs and close the lid, checking every 30-60 minutes just to maintain the heat. Cook the ribs for 4 hours, then wrap in parchment paper or foil and cook an additional 1-3 hours, depending on how thick the meat is.
To test if the ribs are done, use tongs to lift the ribs and bend them. You should feel the bones loose in the meat and see the meat easily bend and break apart.
If you need to keep the ribs warm, wrap in foil, then in two towels and place in a cooler until time to eat.
Grilled ribs will keep in a tightly covered dish in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
