Nothing is as satisfying as nailing your Mino Prime BBQ Ribs. Not only does cooking the perfect fall off the bone ribs taste delicious, you’ll go down in history as the family BBQ master. Now I cannot take credit for the picture above, it was sent to me by @bloodhound_bbq, but those are Mino Prime ribs! In the pursuit for the perfect recipe I have tried a few different styles. The method I used to use a lot is starting low and slow in the oven then finish off on the grill but with the addition of a ceramic grill is a game changer.
How to Cook Mino Prime BBQ Ribs on a Ceramic Grill
Set up your grill for indirect cooking. My preferred cooking temperature is between 225 and 250 degrees. I like to use a blend of hickory, cherry and apple wood. I was turned onto Mojobricks from a customer, no need to soak them just throw them on the hot coals just before adding the meat.
While your grill is preheating get your Mino Prime Ribs ready. My ribs have the membrane removed so all you have to do is pat down both sides with a paper towel and let them dry for a few minutes. Next your ready to season, I don’t use a binder but by all means you do you! Layering seasonings can be a great way to get the ideal flavor your looking for so don’t be afraid to play around with it. My go to is my Mino Prime Steaks pork rub, it covers all the bases. Season liberally bone side first, flip and repeat. Place the ribs on the grill bone side down. Take some time placing your ribs to ensure they are straight and the bones are as even as possible.
Cook the ribs for three hours adding moisture as needed. Add a disposable pan under the grill grates, fill it with your desired fruit juice( I use apple) that should create all the moisture you need. After three hours remove the ribs from the grill, get some heavy duty foil. Line the foil with butter, brown sugar and honey, place the ribs meat side down then top the bone side with the same. Wrap the ribs tightly so no moisture can get in, you can add some additional apple juice to the packet before sealing. Place the tightly sealed packets back on the grill meat side down. Continue to cook until the internal temperature between the bones is 190 and 195 degrees. Make sure to check the temperature 30 minutes after you put the ribs back on the grill.
When the ribs reach 190-195 degrees, remove from the grill, vent and remove the foil. The ribs should be a little pliable and have a slight bend. Glaze both sides with your desired sauce, make sure to thinly coat them. Place the ribs back on the grill bone side down and continue to cook until the internal temperature between the bones is 205 degrees. Remove from the grill and rest five to ten minutes. You should have amazing Mino Prime BBQ Ribs ready to enjoy!
