  1. Season ribs with salt and pepper. Place ribs on a medium-hot grill over indirect heat; close grill hood and grill until ribs are tender, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. (Add more charcoal briquettes to fire, if necessary, to maintain grill temperature of about 325-350 degrees F.)
  2. Finish by turning and basting ribs with barbecue sauce for the last 15 minutes. Serve ribs directly from the grill or, for extra tender ribs remove from grill, wrap in heavy aluminum foil. Place foil-wrapped ribs in brown paper bags, close bags and let ribs rest for up to an hour. Unwrap ribs, cut into serving pieces and serve with extra barbecue sauce.

I simered my ribs in water for about 1-1/2 hours and then put them on the grill. Did not salt or pepper them. Very tender and delicious!

Easy and tastey

Very good directions.

This recipe is supper simple. As long as you pick a good sauce, you can't go wrong.

This came out just perfect! My mom raved that this was the best BBQ Ribs she'd ever had and my sister agreed... and trust me these 2 ladies are as picky as they come. The only thing that I did...
