Rick's Ribs

These are definitely always a crowd pleaser around our house.  This is one of the many creations of Rick, my father-in-law, who is always coming up with great recipes!  We were lucky enough to have him make these while they were visiting us this weekend!

We like to get pork spare ribs and have the butcher cut them in half lengthwise, but baby backs will work also.  Remove the membrane from them and coat them with the following dry rub:

   1/2 C brown sugar
   1/2 tsp garlic powder
   1/2 tsp onion powder
   1 tsp cumin
   2 tsp paprika
   1/2 tsp dried oregano
   1/2 tsp thyme
   1/2 tsp dried mustard
   1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
   1/2 tsp black pepper
   1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Place coated ribs on a cookie sheet, cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.  Let the ribs sit out about 30 minutes before grilling.  Grill 10 minutes per side on medium-high heat, being careful not to burn.  Turn grill down to medium-low heat and grill indirectly for about 1 hour.  Baste with favorite barbecue sauce 2 or 3 times during last 20 minutes.
