In this episode of the Summer Grill Series I show you how I cook up some St Louis Ribs on the grill, and it couldn't be easier!


  • Pork spare ribs
  • Chud rub or your preferred seasoning
  • BBQ sauce of your choice


Prep the Ribs:
  • Clean up any excess fat and trim the ribs as desired.
  • Season the ribs generously with Chud rub or your preferred seasoning, making sure to coat both sides and the edges..
Fire up the Grill:
  • Fire up the grill and preheat it to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  • Set it up for indirect grilling, with the heat source on one side and the ribs on the other side.
  • Close the lid and cook for approximately 2 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 160-165 degrees Fahrenheit (71-74 degrees Celsius). This slow cooking will help render the fat and make the meat tender.
Sear the Ribs:
  • Once the ribs reach the desired internal temperature, move them directly over the flames to sear and get a nice char.
  • Flip the ribs a couple of times to achieve even browning. Keep a close eye on them as this step will be quick.
  • The internal temperature should reach around 200 degrees Fahrenheit (93 degrees Celsius).
Rest and Sauce:
  • Remove the seared ribs from the grill and wrap them tightly in foil. Allow the ribs to rest for about 15-20 minutes. This resting period will help the juices redistribute and enhance the tenderness.
  • After resting, carefully unwrap the ribs. Brush them with your favorite BBQ sauce
Grill and Serve:
  • Place the sauced ribs back on the grill for a few minutes to let the sauce glaze and tack up. This step adds a delicious caramelized finish to the ribs.
  • Once the sauce has slightly set, remove the ribs from the grill and let them rest for a couple of minutes.
  • Slice the pork ribs between the bones to separate them into individual servings.
  • Dive in!
