Ready In:
4hrs 10mins
2 Racks




  • Remove the ribs from packaging and using a sharp knive slit the membrane on the bone side of the rack and attempt to remove as much of it as you can. It is edible so don't worry if you can't get it all. Rinse the ribs under cold water and allow to sit at room temperature while you make the rub.
  • Mix the Paprika, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Chilli Powder, Oregano, Basil, Ground Black Pepper and Cayenne Pepper to make the rub.
  • Using a basting brush put a thin layer of the yellow mustard on both sides of the rack. Sprikle the rub onto both sides in as even a coat as possible.
  • Preheat your grill to 225 F leaving one side of the grill off. Take your time doing this and make sure the temperature stays within 5 F to allow even cooking temperature.
  • Place the racks of ribs on the side of the grill with no direct heat with the bone side down. Cook ribs for 4 - 6 Hours depending on your grill.
  • About 30 minutes before you remove the ribs, baste them with the Bbq sauce and allow to turn into a glaze on the ribs.
  • Remove the ribs and cover with aluminum foil for 10 minutes before eating to allow the meat to rest.
  • Enjoy.

We live in Canada's only border town on the Alberta/Saskatchewan border which runs down the middle of town. Living in the heartland of Heavy Oil, John works in Oilfield construction and Debi in finance. We both love our Company's Coming cookbooks and of course all the fine recipes here on Zaar. After a 6 month winter we cannot wait to get to the Bbq even though we do use it all year. Food cooked outdoors in +30 always tastes better than food cooked in -30 we think, the added bonus is your beer don't freeze. We both love a good meal at home, at a friends or out and about in town. Life is pretty laid back and spent with family and friends, oh and our Border Collie ...Saorsha (Gaelic for Freedom). Right now our world revolves around our first grandson Keegan....just a bundle of fun that goes home at the end of the day to make it even nicer. Thats about it. Thanks for all the recipes you have given us and all your comments which help us learn and grow.
