Last weekend my husband and I fired up the grill, set a slab of hand-trimmed, extra tender, and juicy Smithfield Fresh Pork Ribs on the hot grill, and sat back and enjoyed the afternoon. The beauty of grilling ribs is that you want to slow cook them to ensure that they are fall-of-the-bone delicious. Which means an afternoon of basking in the sun with a cold brew and some fun music. This is the part of summer that we look forward to the most.
With the right tools and tricks ribs are extremely easy to make, especially Smithfield Fresh Pork Ribs. They are tender, very meaty and contain no added hormones or steroids. We like to let them marinate overnight in my favorite homemade dry rub. It contains a bit of sweet, smoky, and of course a kick of spice. Paired with a rich BBQ sauce, these ribs are mouthwateringly delicious. Trust me, you’re going to want to stock up on Smithfield Pork Ribs the next time you are at Walmart, because this will become your easiest and favorite summer time meal.
I have a few tips for making the perfect slab of ribs. First, I wrap the ribs in foil and let them cook dry with only the rub. About an hour after cooking, I begin basting them regularly with the BBQ sauce. When cooking ribs, I always place a half full can of apple juice (or two) in the grill. This creates moisture in the grill and the meat is extra tender.
Since you will be putting in the effort of slow cooking the ribs on your grill, why not make the rub and BBQ sauce homemade too? They are both extremely easy to make and well worth the time. You probably even have all the ingredients in your pantry anyway. I like to make a few extra batches this time of year and place the extra in jars for a great Father’s Day or hostess gift.
