I got the original recipe from an Aldi's Great Grillin' Cookbook a few years back. It calls for pork spare ribs, but I also use it on beef back ribs, just increase the cooking time.

I have modified it some from the original one. I also cooked this in the last restaurant I worked at.

How to Make BODACIOUS GRILLED RIBS

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Prepare grill for direct cooking. Cut ribs into 4- to 6-rib pieces. Spray 2 sheets (24X18 inches) aluminum foil with no stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine paprika, basil, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper and black pepper
    in small bowl.
  3. Rub on both sides of rib pieces. Place half of ribs, in single layer, in center of each foil sheet.
  4. Place 4 ice cubes on top of ribs. Double fold sides and ends of foil to seal packets, leaving head space for heat circulation. Wrap each foil packet with
    another sheet of foil. Place on baking sheet.
  5. Slide packets off baking sheet onto grid over medium heat.
  6. Grill, covered, 45 to 60 minutes or until tender.
    Carefully open one end of each packet to allow steam to escape.
  7. Stir together BBQ sauce and preserves. *I use Kraft Honey BBQ Sauce. **I use homemade wild plum or apple or muscadine or grape.
  8. Open packets; transfer ribs to grid.

    I just leave on the foil, so the BBQ grill doesn't get gunked up.
  9. Brush with sauce mixture. Continue grilling 15 to 20 minutes, per side, brushing with sauce and turning often until glazed.
  10. Enjoy!
