Tender Barbeque Pork Ribs on the grill just got quicker. Ribs on the grill have always been an all-day job.
Tender Barbeque Pork Ribs On The Grill
Well, I’m here to tell you that doing Tender Barbeque Pork Ribs On The Grill no longer has to be a 6 hr job. The secret is cooking them first in the instant pot. Start with putting a dry rub on your ribs and putting them on the trivet in your instant pot. If you don’t have a trivet, you can ball up aluminum foil (3-4 pies) set them in the bottom of the trivet. Put the pork ribs on top of the aluminum foil keeping them up off the bottom of the pot. Add water or broth. Set your instant pot for 30 minutes on manual high pressure. Allow 10-minute slow release.
When the pork ribs come out of the instant pot they will already be so tender that they are falling off the bone. The ribs are now ready to put on the grill or smoker. We use my husband’s Trager wood pellet smoker. His smoker is his favorite toy he loves cooking everything on that thing. I definitely have no problem sharing the cooking. If I can get him to do burgers or hot dogs or even corn on the smoker, I am all for it.
Once you get the pork ribs on the grill or smoker, they can be brushed with your favorite bottled barbeque sauce. If you are creative there are a lot of homemade barbeque sauce recipes.
Are you looking for some great side dishes to serve with these falling off the bone tender pork ribs? Look no further.
If you don’t have an instant pot, I recommend you get one.
In the meantime, if you want to make ribs on the grill, parboiling them is an option.
