Beale Street BBQ Ribs

Posted by Caveman Cooking on October 30, 2009

Slow cooked ribs that end up tender, juicy and full of flavor.


1 Full rack of pork Spare Ribs
6-8 Tbsp. of World Spice Merchants “Memphis Beale St. BBQ Rub”
1 Bowl of Killer BBQ Sauce (see recipe)


Place ribs on suitable tray or plate. Cover both sides liberally with Memphis Beale St. BBQ Rub.

If you are a real caveman, you throw the ribs on the grill right now! But, if you are a more refined, modern caveman you cover them with plastic wrap and put them in the fridge overnight – my preferred method for full flavor enhancement. Either way, heat up your grill (or light the coals). When fully heated (coals grayed) turn off the center burner (move coals to the sides) so as to have indirect heat on the meat. Place ribs on center of grill and cover.
Try to keep the hood temperature around 250° … the goal is to slow cook them for at least 80-90 minutes. Be sure to turn the ribs every 15 minutes. Try to close the grill cover as quickly as possible so the heat doesn’t escape too much.
During the last 15-20 minutes of cooking, baste ribs liberally with Killer BBQ Sauce (reserve the left over sauce for dipping at the table). When done, remove ribs from grill, slice and serve.

Prep Time = less than 5 minutes (or 5 mins. + refrigerate overnight)
Cook Time = 80-90 minutes
Serves 4-6
