These hickory smoked, baby back ribs are the best! We have found that a charcoal kettle grill works better than a gas grill.

  • Prepare the grill for indirect cooking, and position a drip pan under the grate. Drop a handful of soaked hickory over coals when ready to barbeque.

  • Brush grate lightly with oil. Position ribs on grill directly above the drip pan. Cover with onions. Close the lid, and cook for 1/2 hour. After the first 1/2 hour, brush the ribs liberally with barbeque sauce every 15 to 20 minutes for an hour. Add more coals and/or hickory chips as needed. Carve the ribs, and serve.

This recipe is a fine addition to my collection. My kids are a bit more adventerous in the kitchen (where ever it is) than most. They have been cooking with me since the age of 3. Read More

These ribs were very good I think the success of this recipe really depends on the barbeque sauce you use. I used Blue Ribbin Sweet Sauce that I received as a gift. The sauce was flavourful and I really liked the onion taste that came through from the sliced onions but I think I would use my rib rub next time when using this method or try with Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory flavoured sauce.
