 Hot 'n' Spicy Spareribs
I always keep this dry rub in a shaker on my shelf so I have it ready to use in an instant. It's a deliciously different way to prepare barbecued ribs.
4 ServingsPrep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 1 hour 40 min.


  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6 pounds pork spareribs
  • 6 sheets (40 inches x 18 inches) heavy-duty foil


  • In a small bowl, combine the sugar and seasonings. Rub all of it onto
  • both sides of ribs. Make two stacks the three sheets of foil and
  • place half the ribs in the center of each stack. Bring opposite long
  • edges of foil together; fold down several times. Fold the short
  • edges toward the food and crimp tightly to prevent leaks.
  • Refrigerate overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before
  • grilling.
  • Prepare grill for indirect heat. Place foil packets over indirect
  • medium heat. Grill, covered, for 1-1/2 hours or until tender,
  • turning foil packets over after 45 minutes. Remove ribs from foil;
  • place over direct heat. Grill, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes or until
  • crisp, turning once. Yield: 8 servings.
