Big John’s Chili-Rubbed Ribs
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Grill: 1-1/2 hours
I usually get the pre-rubbed ribs at my local store but lately there’s been a shortage of everything. Spareribs were on sale so I picked up a packed and used this rub. It was absolutely fabulous. I’ll never go back to pre-rubbed ribs. I only used the rub and didn’t try the glaze. I may try the glaze for an oven roasted winter version of this dish. I just used the rub and did my typical bbq rib recipe. I had extra rub which I saved. I think it would be good for all sorts of bbq meat. I think I’ll use the extra on chicken or flank steak.
Great for spare ribs. Don't waste time with baby back ribs.
Flavorful and tender. I will add to the rib rotation and make again.
My rack of ribs was about 5 3/4 lbs. and I barely used 1/2 the sauce. I really had to watch so the sauce didn't make the ribs burn to a crisp but they tasted great. I'll make this again but I'll only make half the amount of sauce because that was plenty.
I used a 3lb rack and the cooking time was about one hour in the foil and 15 minutes withthe glaze. The ribs were tender, sweet and a little different than the norm. Definitely a fun change!
