Ideally, you buy the only BBQ Book you ever need- Peace Love and Barbecue by Mike and Amy Mills. They give detailed instructions for preparing and cooking great ribs. For years we par-baked ribs in the oven wrapped in foil and just finished them off on the grill. Since meeting Mike Mills of 17th Street Barbecue we have learned from the best! One of Mike’s first impressions of GrillGrates was that they would be ideal for ribs for the backyard griller (as opposed to the Smoker crowd) People always ask Mike how to do ribs on a grill, and his answer had been- it’s hard to do, and he suggests smoking. The added protection of GrillGrates makes all the difference. Since meeting Mike, grilled ribs have become a staple in our home.
