Serve hot as a side dish to grilled chicken or fish for a balanced summer meal.

Introduction

Select lean pork ribs, low-sodium BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.

Marinade

Preheat the grill to medium heat, around 300°F, for indirect grilling.

Preheating the Grill

Place the ribs on the grill over indirect heat, cover, and cook for 2-3 hours, turning occasionally and basting with extra marinade.

Cooking the Ribs

Ensure the ribs are cooked through, with an internal temperature of 145°F, and have a nice char on the outside.

Checking Doneness

Remove the ribs from the grill and let them rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
