Summertime is full swing and the smell of BBQ is in the air.  Our family loves to eat BBQ and my wife loves to eat ribs.  The only thing is I have never tried to cook ribs on my grill.  So when we found out about the “Dibs on my Ribs” recipe contest that Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc., McCormick & Company, Kraft Foods, Inc., and the National Pork Board are co-sponsoring, I thought here is my chance.

Dibs on my Ribs

Dibs on my Ribs


  • 1 slab of Tyson Pork SpareRibs
  • 1 4.76oz tub of McCormick Grill Mates Sweet & Smoky Rub
  • 1 bottle of Kraft Honey Hickory Smoke BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup of Apple juice
  • aluminum foil


  1. Preheat grill to 300 degrees
  2. Rub your ribs on both sides with the McCormick rub. Make sure ribs are covered on both sides thoroughly
  3. Place ribs on grill over indirect heat for 30 or until ribs are browned on all sides
  4. Now we are going to steam the ribs in the apple juice. We are going to do this by making a water tight packet with the foil. Before you seal your ribs in the foil, pour the apple juice in the packet and seal it up tight.
  5. Put the ribs back on the grill (indirect heat) at 375 degrees for 30-45 minutes, depending on size of ribs)
  6. Unwrap ribs and put back on grill at 250 degrees and mop BBQ sauce on top of ribs, close lid and wait 5 minutes
  7. Turn over and do the same to this side.
  8. Do at least 2 coats a side
  9. Take ribs off and let rest before cutting

My 1st attempt at making this recipe didn't quite go as planned.  It took longer to cook than expected.  So just make sure you check the internal temp and make sure it gets to at least 160 degrees.
