Let’s Get Grilling!

By Randal White

Grilled pork ribs

2 slabs Saint Louis ribs about 2 lbs each
2 cups cider vinegar
1⁄2 cup garlic fussed oil
Juice of 2 lemons
Juice of 2 limes

Lightly oil ribs and generously season with BBQ rub. Let ribs sit overnight or for at least 2 hours. Place ribs on pre-heated grill and let them cook and receive good color. Mix remaining rib juice with vinegar and oil. (Use this to baste the ribs as they cook.) When the ribs have good color and flavor from the grill, baste and remove. This is the secret: wrap the ribs tightly in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil. Place on the top shelf of grill and regulate the grill to stay at 300 degrees for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Carefully remove the wrap and foil, place on grill, and brush on sauce. Shut lid and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes more and serve. (Some people may not want sauce, so serve it on the side)
