Grilled Barbecue Spare Ribs
There’s nothing better than a great rack of ribs. Grilled Barbecue Spare Ribs are dry rubbed, roasted to make them tender, then grilled with barbecue sauce for that fall-off-the-bone for a melt-in-your-mouth experience.
Not all spare ribs are created equal. Do you know where your ribs came from? Do you know about the farm they came from and the living conditions of the animal? What about what the animal was fed? These are all questions you need to ask when buying ribs.
4th of July is fast approaching and it does also happen to be National Barbecue Spareribs day so I would be doing you a dis-service by not sharing my grilled ribs recipe. First I dry rub them, pour over some barbecue sauce, then they are roasted for 1 1/2 hours.
After roasting, I cover the ribs in my signature Chipotle Bacon BBQ Sauce. The sauce is sweetened with pineapple juice which give it amazing flavor. They are then grilled to caramelize the barbecue sauce. This will give them a lovely smoky BBQ flavor.

I’ve been making ribs this way for a few years now and it’s a must eat in our house for this National day of barbecue. Happy 4th of July.

I made these last night and it didn’t matter that I don’t have a grill. They broil up with a great crust and the sauce is delicious. Not too sweet and you really don’t taste the pineapple too much, a well balanced sauce
I’m ready for ribs. I’m glad you liked them.
I actually have ribs on the agenda for tonight. Great timing of seeing this post. You managed to get messy ribs to look stunning! Great job!
Thank you Christine, enjoy your ribs 🙂

Happy 4th July, Janette! And what a wonderful 4th July it will be if you make these gorgeous ribs! Love the sound of all the spices on them … mmmm, my mouth is really watering!
The perfect barbecue treat!
Such a great rub, simple yet delicious flavors that everyone (including me) already has on hand. Perfect for summer grilling.

Thank you Mira, have a fabulous weekend 🙂
These look great. I love the rub and the sauce you created. Only way to do the ribs justice!
Lots of great flavor you packed into the rub.
I love this! Perhaps I won’t get the same result, but I’ll try them in the oven now, cuz my BBQ is in terrible condition.
Thank you Amber, sorry about your BBQ. What you could do is broil them after roasting and adding BBQ sauce.
This looks way too good…beautifully cooked.
Thank you so much Sandi

Omg, my stomach literally growled when I saw this post. BBQ ribs is where it’s at! Love the cayenne in there for a bit of heat 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July!
Yummy yummy! We are making ribs this weekend, I need to try your recipe. It looks fabulous! And that BBQ sauce! swoon!
What a lovely dry rub – it sounds super flavourful! Black Diamond Meats sound wonderful – I’m so concerned about the provision of the meat my family eats.
