BBQ Back Ribs on the Gas Grill

If you’ve ever thought of cooking ribs on a gas grill and think it’s impossible, oh it’s very possible! Especially if you have a 2 gas burner grill.

Length of time from start to finish:
Difficulty: Easy
  • 3 racks of back ribs
  • Mopping sauce
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp mustard powder (sub 1 tsp regular mustard)
  • 1 cup packed brown Sugar

Preheat the grill to 275 degrees and prep the ribs by removing or scoring the membrane on the back of the ribs.

-Season them with your favorite bbq rub. Now in a foil add wood chips and poke some holes. Place the foil over direct heat. On the gas grill place, the ribs over the burners that are off. Leaving only one burner on.

-Check on the ribs after 3 hours, just to see how they are doing.

Now, let’s make the Mop sauce. In a saucepan combine, butter, black pepper, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, chili flakes, minced garlic, leave on the flame for 15 min on low heat. Consistently stir so the sugar won’t burn.

-Now baste the ribs with that sauce every hour. Remove the ribs once you can pick them up with the tongs and they begin to crack in the middle. They take around 5 hours to cook.

I highly recommend a meat thermometer to read the internal temperature of the ribs. You want the ribs at 195 internal temperature.
