This is the first time this summer that I’ve grilled BBQ SpareRibs on the Weber. Based on how delicious they were, I get the feeling that I will be doing them A LOT.
Before I can get down to business though, the video had to be broken up into two parts because youtube only lets you upload a 10 minute video. The first part is the BBQ SpareRibs on the Weber, and the second part is the Herb Corn on the Cob. You will notice at one point in the BBQ SpareRibs video that two giant corn on the cobs appear out of nowhere (like magic). Now you know why…
Ok, so what you’ll need for this recipe is a slab of pork spareribs, some of your favorite seasonings, some BBQ sauce, and some cooking oil.
Start off by patting down the meat with a paper towel to get any excess moisture off of the ribs. Next, you’ll score the backside of the ribs with a knife. This will help to break apart the membrane.
Now you want to rub the ribs with olive oil and then season them up. I used red pepper flakes, mesquite seasoning, and garlic pepper salt. Once your grill is nice and hot, you want to sear the ribs on both sides and then move them off of the coals. Once you move them off of the coals, close the lid and leave them alone for about an hour. At this point you just want to make sure that the ribs are still there. The aroma from the grill tends to attract hungry neighbors!!!
Actually, you just want to lift the lid and make sure everything is OK.
At about the 1hr and 15 minute mark you want to put your favorite BBQ sauce on them. Give them a brush and close the lid for the final 15 minutes.
When they are done you want to take them inside and cut them into individual ribs.

Here is the short video on the Herb-ed Corn that I couldn’t fit into the video.
