  • The prep for thick pork ribs is real easy. Just apply the rub evenly on all sides but the bone side.

  • Fire up your grill, prepare it for indirect grilling. Have it running at 265° F (130° C). Use the snake method if you’re using a kettle grill, or even better, a Slow ‘N Sear. Place the ribs on the indirect side, with a thermometer probe in the meat. Add some wood chunks for smoking on the glowing embers. Apple wood chunks works well. Now close the lid and wait. A cut like this usually takes 4-5 hours.

  • You know the ribs are done when one of two things happen:
    A. The meat temp hits 95° C / 203° F, or
    B. The meat is probe tender. Wiggle the temp probe and see how it feels. When the meat feels soft like (peanut) butter, it's done.
  • Remove it, wrap it in two layers of aluminum foil and a thick towel (a faux cambro), and let it rest for 30 minutes before serving.
