Heat the barbecue
Ribs are mostly bone and muscle so cooking them slowly is the ideal method for producing juicy, tender, fall-off-the-bone meat.
Preheat your gas bbq on high for 10 minutes with the lid on.
If you’re using charcoal, fire it up until there’s a good coat of ash.
When the bbq is heated, clean the grates with a wire brush.
Wipe with oil to keep the ribs from sticking.
Make a place for the ribs to cook over indirect heat.
On your gas bbq, turn off the middle burner and set the side burners to medium-low.
On your charcoal bbq, push the hot coals over to one side, or clear them away from the centre.
