We suggest that when you’re going to cook ribs, whether it be in the oven, smoking them or grilling do not boil the ribs first! Boiling the ribs removes important vitamins, minerals and of course, flavor! To get the most out of the ribs, you should first know the anatomy of a rib! The rib itself is curved and the highest part of the rib is the loin meat, the smoke ring meat is located near the slender end of the rib. Ribs are very tasty and
when cooked right are out of this world! Don’t let others fool you and say boiling is the best thing to do before grilling or smoking! Though boiling may have it’s benefits like the meat falling off the bone after being grilled or smoked, the taste is more bland than if you were to not soak them. So, for more flavorful tasty ribs, not boiling is the way to go!
You want to make sure you use your favorite flavorful rub and of course salt on your ribs to make them extra tasty! When it’s time to put the ribs on the grill, make sure to lay them on the top rack, reduce the heat to low, close the lid and do not open the lid for 1 hour. After the 1 hour, you want to brush some of your favorite lip smackin’ bbq on the ribs and leave them on the grill for another 5-10 minutes.
