Below is a rib recipe for use on a gas grill. It's quick, it's easy, and it's not all that messy. Ribs on a gas grill may be blasphemy to some, but for those without smokers and/or all day to prepare, this is a dandy of a dish...
4-5 lbs. of pork spare ribs
3tsp table salt
3tsp black pepper
3tsp garlic powder
3tsp brown sugar
2tsp celery seed
2 cups apple cider vinegar
2 cups water
--Preheat gas grill to LOW heat
--Remove membrane from each slab
--Mix the apple cider vinegar and water in a bowl; this is your mop sauce
--Mix the spices together; this is your dry rub
--Throw a few pinches of the dry rub into the mop sauce
1) Place each slab bone-side down over the grill. Grill for 30 to 40 minutes - on LOW - basting the slabs w/mop sauce every 10-15 minutes.
2) Flip the slabs over and grill meat-side down for 30 minutes. Continue basting with the mop sauce every 10-15 minutes.
3) Flip the slabs again, grill for 15 minutes. Add your dry rub to suit your tastes. Continue to baste with the mop sauce every 10-15 minutes.
4) Flip one more time, grill for a final 15 minutes, add more dry-rub, continue to baste every 10-15 minutes.
5) You should be done.
If you have wood chips, use them. Soak them for 30mins or so, wrap them in foil and poke holes in the foil and place them on the grill where there's room. Either way, you still won't get that real true smoky flavor, but the ribs will be good just the same.
