There's nothing quite like sinking your teeth into tender, fall-off-the-bone BBQ ribs at a summer cookout.

Fire up the grill, grab your favorite BBQ sauce, and get ready to impress your guests with these finger-licking ribs.



1. Preheat your grill to indirect heat at 250°F (120°C). If using a charcoal grill, set up a two-zone fire by placing the charcoal on one side of the grill.

2. Remove the silver skin from the back of the ribs by sliding a butter knife under the membrane and pulling it off.

3. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, chili powder, and cayenne pepper (if using). This mixture will be your dry rub.

4. Generously season both sides of the ribs with the dry rub, patting it into the meat to ensure even coverage.

5. Place the ribs on the indirect heat side of the grill, bone side down, and close the lid. Let them smoke for approximately 3 hours, maintaining a consistent temperature.

6. After 3 hours, brush the ribs with BBQ sauce, ensuring all sides are coated. Close the lid and continue cooking for another 30 minutes to allow the sauce to caramelize.

7. Remove the ribs from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing.

8. Slice the ribs between the bones and serve them with extra BBQ sauce on the side.

These BBQ ribs will be the star of your 4th of July cookout, impressing everyone with their tender, smoky, and finger-licking goodness. The combination of the flavorful dry rub and the caramelized BBQ sauce creates a perfect balance of sweetness, tanginess, and smokiness. Get ready to indulge in a BBQ feast that will have your guests coming back for seconds. Fire up the grill, prepare your appetite, and get ready to savor the irresistible taste of these mouthwatering BBQ ribs.
