Grilled Smoky Tangy BBQ Ribs
At the beginning of each summer, my husband and I make a list of all of the recipes that we want to make that summer. Always on the list are foods like grilled burgers, kebabs, grilled pizza, etc. This year, Troy wanted to add grilling ribs to our list! We used his super amazing homemade smoky tangy barbecue sauce recipe for these Grilled Smoky Tangy BBQ Ribs and I can't wait to share the recipe with you!

Troy started making this homemade BBQ sauce about a year ago and I keep having him make it again and again! I do most of the cooking in our house but every so often, he will cook up something and it is always awesome. This tangy barbecue sauce quickly became his specialty!

We have made ribs before but it is definitely a treat for us. My dad actually taught us how to make ribs super delicious so I wanted to share our techniques. First of all, you know that I am a dietitian and like to make all foods a little bit healthier so we boil our ribs before grilling them to remove some of the fat. Then, we brush them with Troy's homemade BBQ sauce and grill them. Don't forget to reapply the barbecue sauce a couple of times.

My 2 year old son absolutely loved them! He ate all of the meat from one rib and then said "more meat! more meat!". Haha! They were super delicious and a big treat for us to make at home- though they were easy to make so we should do it more often.

We love pairing the ribs with grilled veggies and potatoes. I just toss whatever vegetables that I want to grill with olive oil, garlic powder and onion powder. So tasty! A complete and delicious meal made right on the grill! I made this meal for Father's Day and it was the perfect summer meal for Dad!

For this recipe, I used Smithfield Extra Tender Fresh Pork St. Louis Style Ribs from Walmart. They are delicious and easy to grill. They are hand trimmed, very tender and juicy. You can cook these ribs hot and fast or low and slow. Keep reading for a fun sweepstakes.

I like cooking them quicker because with the kids, they like to eat early and ASAP so meals are typically quicker around here. We are on #TeamFast right now!

ribs and wine
You know that I love Smithfield® products as I cook with their pork tenderloin and pork loin often. For a Father's Day celebration, my husband enjoyed pairing these ribs with some Liberty Creek Wine!
