Chipotle Seasoning Rub
There are a few things you need to do to make mouth-watering, fall-off-the-bone ribs. First, start with a good rack of ribs and a great seasoning rub like our Chipotle Rib Rub
When you get the ribs home the first thing you need to do is remove the silverskin. Silverskin is the thin membrane on the underside of the ribs. Removing it helps make them more tender and easier to eat. It is pretty simple. Turn your ribs over so they are bone side up, then find the beginning of the thin membrane at one end. Pull it up and using a sharp knife gently scrape between the skin and the meat to help separate them. If you can get a good hold on the skin (some people use pliers) you can begin pulling the skin and it will come away fairly easily. Don’t worry if you don’t get every bit of it, just do your best.
Then coat the ribs in a thin layer of yellow mustard, and press the dry rub mix into the top and bottom of the ribs. I get a nice thick layer so there will be lots of flavor once the ribs are cooked. Now, I’m going to tell you a secret, I don’t cook my ribs entirely on the grill. To get them nice and tender I first wrap them in foil and partially cook them in the over at 350°F for 2 hours. I usually do this the night before I want to eat them so when they come out of the oven I let them cool and then wrap them up and put them in the refrigerator.
Then when your ready to cook them the next day put them on the grill for another hour. The trick to getting them nice and tender is to cook them over indirect heat with the grill lid closed. Yes, you can just cook them in the oven, but that hour on the grill gives them so much flavor from the smoke, and a little bit of char on the edges of the meat. To keep the meat moist while cooking on the grill you can use a mop sauce. It is a simple sauce made of water, apple cider vinegar, and yellow mustard. All you do it baste the ribs with it while they cook so they don’t get dried out.
When the ribs are ready take them off the grill and let them rest for about 10 minutes before you cut them apart. And that’s it. Good ribs take a little while to cook but they are totally worth it!
