Low and Slow Grilled Baby Back Ribs

I’ve been really craving a nice rack of slow grilled baby back ribs lately. I didn’t want to cook them in the oven and finish them on the grill like I’ve done in the past. I really wanted to get than beautiful smokey grilled flavor really set into the baby back ribs. The craving had to be satisfied.

The best part of summer is grilling. I go through so much propane from grilling and the kitchen stays semi-clean for 3 months. So that’s a huge win!

And yes, I’ve been long converted to a propane guy. I like to taste the meat, not the heat (in my hank hill voice). OK, honestly I prefer both, but most apartments look down on charcoal grills.

But, I can’t complain with the grill I have. Plus the use of a smoking box, you really don’t tell the difference.  I’m also not confident enough with using charcoal to take on a 6 hour low temperature adventure. But that’s just me!

It’s honestly the best to be grilling it up in the backyard low and slow at 200 F, with the kids playing in the back yard (or in my case a small patio), and having a cold beer by your side.

Nothing says summer like some slow grilled baby back ribs.

I used my tried and true texas style barbecue rub for this one. I have another rub in the works, but sometimes when I have a craving I need to just play it save and go with what works! I let it sit on the grill for about 6 hours at about 200 degrees Fahrenheit, using apple-wood chips in my smoke box to get that smokey flavor in.

It’s not as good as setting up an actual vertical smoker, but you still get a wonderful hint of smoke that’s really amazing.

in the last 30 minutes, that’s when the magic happens. Turn up the heat to about 300, then mop on a little sauce and turn every 5-10 minutes. I also like to put a little more on before serving just for good measure!

Try out my barbecue sauce to if you have a chance, if you want to keep it simple and go with store bought, I also recommend Stubb’s [affiliate link] . I went with their sweet heat for this time around, because I love my spicy!

Instructions
  1. Preheat your grill to 200F. while it's preheating take your ribs and turn them over, bone side facing you. With your finger, slide it between the membrane and the meat and begin to pull up. once you have grip, the membrane will pull all the way off in one pull.
  2. take a liberal amount of the Texas Style BBQ rub and coat the ribs on each side. Place over indirect heat on your grill.
  3. Monitor your grill over the next 6-7 hours and make sure the temperature stays around 200F. Optionally you can also use a smoker box with wood chips to add some extra flavor. The longer it cooks low and slow the more tender and delicious it will be.
  4. After your done slow cooking, turn the heat up to about 300 F. Mop barbecue sauce on the ribs turning every 5-10 minutes. Take off the grill and let rest for about 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

  • Nothing says summer like standing at the BBQ with an ice cold beer! And slow cooked ribs – yes! Loving the sound of the smoky, applewood flavours, I’d probably keep all the ribs to myself!
