First of all, you have to remove the skin from the ribs with the help of a knife. Make sure that the skin is properly removed, otherwise the meat will become black on the grill, and not cook properly. Then, you have to apply a rub on all the ribs. Just clean the ribs in cool water, pat them dry, and apply your favourite rub, containing spices, black pepper, white pepper, paprika, salt and any other seasonings of your choice. After applying the rub, place the ribs in the refrigerator.
Then, you have to prepare the woodchips in order to flavour the ribs. Please note that apple, peach and pecan wood give a slight flavour to the ribs. On the other hand, if you want to add a strong taste to your ribs, you can use hickory or mesquite chips. To get the desired taste, you will have to soak the chips in lukewarm water for around half an hour.
Prepare your grill for the ribs by turning on the gas. Keep the burners half lit and half unlit. Then, layer the charcoal into the grill and sprinkle the soaked wood chips all over them, on in a metal pan on top of them.
Now, place the ribs on the grill and allow them to cook. Keep turning the ribs after every half an hour using a pair of tongs. Keep adding barbecue sauce to the ribs while they are on the grill and then cook them for around 15 to 20 more minutes.
Once you suspect they are done, take a meat thermometer and check the temperature. The meat will be cooked at 150 degrees Fahrenheit or 65 degrees Centigrade. Once they are done, use tongs or a fork to remove them from the grill.
Then, put the ribs in a dish and place them aside for a while so that they may cool down. Serve them along with your favourite sauce and cold drinks.
