How To Clean and Prepare Ribs for Barbecue


There are a couple of methods for flavoring ribs prior to barbecuing on the grill. Before you add seasoning, be sure to remove the silvery membrane that runs along the bone-side of the BBQ ribs. The membrane is like a fibrous skin that will block the flavor of spices and marinades from penetrating the meat. If you aren't comfortable trimming it yourself, ask your butcher to remove the membrane for you.

Dry Rubs

Dry rubs use a combination of herbs and spices to impart an added level of flavor to BBQ ribs. Jake's provides a wonderful set of BBQ dry rubs that make grilling ribs simple and easy. The steps to grilling ribs with dry rub are as follows.


1. Place the BBQ ribs on a large platter or tray.


2. Coat the ribs with the BBQ rub, cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate for 1 - 3 hours.


Once ribs have marinated in BBQ dry rub, remove and place on the grill. During the cooking process either when using barbecue sauce or BBQ dry rubs ribs should be turned. Turning will aid in cooking the BBQ ribs all the way through on both sides.


Once done, remove and set aside for 5 - 10 minutes, BBQ ribs will generally continue cooking for a few minutes then will be cooled to just the right temperature for eating. Now that you've learned How to BBQ ribs why not take a look at the barbecue sauce and dry rubs used at Jake's Famous Foods to enhance the flavor of these meats.
