Grilled Pork Ribs
Grilled Pork Ribs
Our Sunday lunch was Grilled Pork Ribs, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Cheesy New Potatoes, and Yeast Rolls. It was such a windy day but nice weather for grilling. Phillip dug some new potatoes for our lunch as well as for Brent and his family to have at their home. We had our first daylily blooms today. We continue to gather mayhaws daily and there is definitely a love for mayhaw jelly in our area. I love the stories that are told to me at The Market at Dothan Nurseries when people are buying mayhaw jelly from me. Precious memories of their momma or grandmother serving mayhaw jelly to them. Cotton has been planted in the field next to our house. It won't be long before peanuts will be planted in the field across the road from us. It's a busy time for our farming community. Our blackberry bushes are covered in white blooms. Can't wait until it's time to gather blackberries. It'll be here soon enough. After lunch today with Brent and his family, we retreated to the front porch for visiting. Life is good.
Phillip grills on a Weber 22 inch grill. For ribs, he pours Kingsford Charcoal into half of the bottom surface of the grills with the brickets two deep. This was to cook 14 country style pork ribs. Spray lighter fluid over the charcoal until well covered. Let it soak in and then ignite with a match or hand lighter. The charcoal will need to burn until the flame dies down and the charcoal is completely white. Scrub the grill rack with a wire brush to clean where the charcoal has burned.
Place the pork ribs on the rack over the charcoal. Place the lid back on the grill with the vents open. After 3-4 min., remove the lid and check the ribs for grill marks. As the ribs begin to show grill marks on the side closest to the fire, they will need to be flipped. You will continue to check and flip the ribs until all of the ribs have grill marks on both sides. You will flip the ribs several times during the cooking process. When the ribs are done, place in a casserole dish that the surface has been covered with aluminum foil. Cover the top of the dish with aluminum foil, so that the ribs are completely covered. Place in a 300 degree oven for two hours. The ribs will be tender and moist. Serve with BullsEye Original BBQ Sauce.
