Grilled BBQ country pork ribs are something my Father used to make all of the time. You see, he considered himself a Texan and all Texans love to BBQ. The bigger and bolder the flavors, the better.
If my Dad saw a BBQ or cooking contest going on in the area, which meant anywhere in the big wonderful state of Texas, he would enter and travel as far as he had to just for an opportunity to share his love of cooking. One year he won an award for his Chili at the Terlingua Chili Cook-off.
I inherited a lot of things from my Dad and one of them is my love for BBQ and grilling. What I didn’t inherit was his special recipe for BBQ sauce. I kept trying to get it from him and he would always put me off. Sad to say, my Father passed about 10 years ago. His secret sauce recipe went with him.
I have tried various BBQ sauces and finally found the one that is as close, if not better, than my Dad’s. I think he would approve. While shopping, a couple days ago, I noticed Heinz had a Texas Bold & Spicy BBQ Sauce. I thought to myself, now there is a sauce I need to try. Boy, am I glad it did.
I picked up some country pork ribs, dry rubbed them and threw them on the grill. After an hour or so, I began to slater the Heinz Texas Bold & Spicy BBQ Sauce on them. The sauce is slightly sweet with a kick of cumin and chili powder – two ingredients that I love to cook with.
Here is how to make these Grilled BBQ Country Pork Ribs:
- 1 TBL salt
- 2 tsp chile powder
- 2 tsp chipotle powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 3 - 4 pounds country style pork ribs
- 2 cups Heinz Texas Bold & Spicy BBQ Sauce
- Mix the spices together in a small bowl.
- Rub the mixture on the country style pork ribs and place them in zippered plastic bag for 2 hours or up to 24 hours.
- Heat your gas grill to high and let it come to the full temperature.
- Turn off half of the burners (I have a 4 burner grill - I turn off 2 of them)
- Place the country pork ribs on the half that has no direct heat. Let them cook for about 30 minutes and then turn.
- After about an hour, begin to baste them with the Heinz Texas Bold & Spicy BBQ Sauce. Continue to turn and baste every 15 minutes.
- When the meat begins to fall off the bone, place them on the heat side of the grill and baste again. Flip after about 5 minutes and baste again. Remove from the heat when the sauce is nice and bubbly. Enjoy.
- If you don't have a gas grill you can still make these ribs. If using charcoal, just move the coals to one side of the grill and cook on the other side. You don't want direct heat until the end.
Now, I am going to warn you – these ribs take time to cook. You will want to put aside about 2 hours for cooking them. Don’t worry, they will be worth every second. You will be licking your fingers and beggin’ for more.
These ribs are so darn tasty. I swear we will be having them again. I also know that Heinz Texas Bold & Spicy BBQ sauce will be a part of many recipes I love to make. How bout’ using it on your next hamburger or hotdog? What about in a pulled pork sandwich? Hey, how about using it to make your next Sloppy Joe?
If you are not a Bold and Spicy BBQ Sauce kind of person, you can try the Heinz Classic BBQ Sauce – it is great too.
