What is the best way to cook ribs on the grill?
- The key to perfect grilled ribs is cooking them over indirect heat, the coolest area of a hot grill. Indirect heat keeps the ribs juicy on the inside and creates a beautiful crust on the outside. For a gas grill, light one side, but leave the other side unlit—this is where you’ll cook your ribs.
How long should I grill my ribs?
Place the ribs right on the grill, using tongs to maneuver them into place.
Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 30 minutes on each side.
After the first hour, move the ribs to direct medium heat and cook 20-40 minutes longer, or until the pork is tender (more on this in a minute).
Should beef ribs be boiled before grilling?
Beef ribs need a fair amount of cooking time to break down the collagen and tenderize, so you do want to pre-cook them before grilling. But simply boiling won’t add flavor and you’ll end up with a blander result. Instead, braise them in a flavored liquid or spice then slowly roast them before finishing on the grill.
How do you smoke beef ribs on a gas grill?
How do you know when beef ribs are done?
Check for doneness by gently inserting a toothpick between two membranes: the one outside the bones and the one that separates the bones from the meat. Inside, the meat should be extremely tender. Alternatively, take an internal temperature reading: the ribs should be done when they reach 203°F.
