Getting good ribs with a genuine barbecue flavor from a gas grill is a challenge. Gas grills are great for hot and fast cooking but not so good when you need to turn a rack of ribs into tender, smoky barbecue. There are some tricks you can use however. To get the best possible ribs from your gas grill you need to use a three step process to get them perfect.

I’ve been grilling now for 12 years and the number one rule to doing awesome ribs is never do it on a gas grill!!!! There is nothing like charcoal and the flavor it brings, especially for something like ribs!!! Propane is for amateurs and for people that just don’t have patience. SORRY!!!!!!

Dry the ribs. Remove the membrane. Coat the ribs with mustard. Apply the rub liberally both sides. I use recipe I got from Derrick Riches Kryptonite or Kansas City rub. Set temperature at 225F to 250F. If your grill says cool warm hot go buy a real grill. Kidding buy an oven thermometer. Set up grill so ribs are not directly under heat source. (indirect) Use St. Louis style ribs or back ribs or lastly spare ribs. Put in wood chunks apple is nice. After about 4 hours they should be ready for sauce. Coat liberally with Sweet Baby Ray’s Sweet ‘n’ Spicy. If you want to cheat cover ribs with foil at any step; but you will lose smoky flavours.

Allen W. just because you cant cook great ribs on gas doesnt mean the rest of us can’t. Slow cooking, good rubs and patience is all it takes
