David's BBQ Pork Ribs

David Kuhlmann


This recipe is one I came up with one day when wanting something different for my BBQ ribs other than BBQ sauce. So if you are wanting to try something different next time you BBQ pork ribs give it a try. You'll be glad you did!

This recipe gives ribs an incredible flavor that you just need to try. Use it on any pork you wish to BBQ. Pork steaks, baby back ribs, spare ribs, short ribs country style ribs or St Louis style ribs.

All of my family and friends that have tried this recipe, ask for it every time I BBQ.

Enjoy! And as always,

Bon Appetite!

How to Make David's BBQ Pork Ribs


  1. Wash rib racks in cold water and dry. Then remove the film on the inside of the rack.
  2. In a mixing bowl add apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, worchestire sauce, liquid smoke, brown sugar and seasonings. Mix well until the brown sugar dissolves (for the most part) and set aside.
  3. Cut the rack into sections of 3-4 ribs each. Usually 1/4 of the rack each

    In a one gallon Ziploc bag, place the ribs and pour the marinade mix into the bag. Get as much air out of the bag as you can and zip shut. Mix around in the bag so the marinade gets all over the ribs. You should have 4 pretty equal sections of ribs.

    You can set them where the bag will lay flat on the counter. Leave out, do not refrigerate. About every 15 minutes flip the bag over and work the marinade into the meat.

    The marinade works best if the ribs and marinade are at room temperature. Allow to marinate at least one hour.
  4. Remove ribs from bag and place on a hot grill but with indirect heat. You want the ribs to slow cook. If you place them over the fire you will be fighting nasty hot fires as they cook due to the brown sugar.
  5. Brush ribs with marinade or dip them in the Ziploc bag several times during cooking. At least once per half hour.

    Need to cook for 2 1/2 hours or until the meat is starting to pull off the bones.
  6. Remove from the grill, rest, slice into individual ribs and then serve.
