Easy BBQ Pork Ribs

Serves 6 people
Prep Time: 20 - 30 mins
Cook Time: 2 hours


2 racks of pork ribs
Kosher salt
Dried thyme
Dried rosemary
Freshly ground pepper
1 small bottle of soy sauce
1 cup of brown sugar
1 small bbq sauce bottle (your personal favorite)


Lay the pork ribs in a large disposable aluminum tray, cover the ribs with soy sauce and let them simmer for 10 minutes. Get rid of the excess of soy sauce, noticing that your ribs should have a light glaze over them.

In a separate bowl mix a generous amount of thyme and rosemary with the brown sugar, add a pinch of salt and grind enough pepper to sprinkle both racks. Make a nice rub with the igredients.

Cover the ribs with the rub make sure you cover the back and front of the rack and put aside, turn the grill on medium/high heat and wait for it to get into 450 - 500 degrees.

Put the whole tray in the grill and close for 1.5 hours, you will see that the rub melted and the ribs are nice and covered in sugar. With a brush gently cover the front and back of the ribs with bbq sauce and flash seare them on each side. (3 - 4 minuutes at the time) Then set the ribs back into the aluminum tray and with a spoon cover them with the juices that have been dripped on the tray.

Lower the heat to medium and keep smoking them for as long as you want (minimum of 30 more minutes) your ribs will be so tender and yummy everyone will go back for seconds!

Tip: You can slice apples or pears and place them under the ribs in the aluminum tray for aroma. You can also add some honey into the bbq sauce to make it sweeter!
