How to make Ribs on the Grill


The best ribs recipe to serve at your next family BBQ. Learn how to make ribs on the grill with this simple and delicious recipe.



  • 1 rack of ribs
  • Seasonings (paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, salt + pepper)
  • lemon juice


  1. Start with your racks of ribs in a large aluminum pan, with each rack in its own piece of tinfoil large enough to wrap it up in. Generously coat both sides of each rack with a seasoning of paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, salt + pepper and a generous coating of lemon juice. Then wrap each rack individually in tinfoil.

As for entertaining, we love to use our beautiful Wooden Feast Boards from WoodKith as the perfect platter for serving up the bets ribs recipe as it makes an impressive and hearty presentation. I also love going with the classics when it comes to BBQ, with good Southern sides like homemade coleslaw (I use a vinegar based recipe), white bread, and some sort of Day Pickle or Sweet Fire pickle relish for a perfect touch of acidity to balance the smoky flavor of the sauce. Cast Iron mac + cheese or hand-cut homefries are also a nice touch. These pair perfectly with a fresh watermelon this time of year.

Perfect for serving up a crowd, a good Southern BBQ is always a good idea. The fact that ribs are more stand-alone than shredded pork or chicken makes it an easy and impressive spread. I hope you love the best ribs recipe as much as we do!
