This Cayenne Sugar Rib recipe rubs cayenne pepper, garlic, and brown sugars together for a light sweet and spicy glaze on top of deliciously grilled pork ribs. This is an easy way to enjoy juicy ribs all spring and summer long!
I don’t know about y’all but I have always been intimidated by cooking ribs. I’ve never tried too hard at it because I figured there was no way I could cook them properly.
Then add in grilling ribs…
ya know since it’s getting warmer out and everything needs to be grilled until…… umm October-ish, I figured I should give this one a try.
It turns out that it’s easy it is to grill ribs.
Maybe too easy.
I concocted my own sweet and spicy rub that quickly turned into the most amazingly gooey glaze before I put my Smithfield Extra Tender Pork St Louis Style Ribs on some warm charcoal coals.
Then I let the cayenne sugar ribs cook on the grill for 1.5-2 hours, flipping every once in awhile, then removing them from the grill and letting them rest for 5 minutes before devouring.
Smithfield Extra Tender Pork St Louis Style Ribs are perfect any night on the grill, whether a great weeknight meal or getting together to barbecue with family and friends.
Everytime I make this recipe the ribs turn out perfectly, tender and juicy.
These ribs are hand-trimmed, extra-tender and juicy.
And who doesn’t need another excuse to make more food on the grill?!?
So let’s just all agree to go get some…. like today.
- 1 packge Smithfield Extra Tender Pork St Louis Style Ribs
Cayenne Sugar Rub
- 1/3 cup brown or coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, optional
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp minced garlic
- Cut your ribs in half for easier handling. Heat your charcoal grill to a medium heat.
- Mix all of the cayenne sugar rub ingredients together in a medium bowl. Rub half of the rub on the meat and leave the other half to rub on during the grilling process. Allow the rub to turn into a glaze over the meat (approximately 10 minutes.)
- Place the sections of ribs on the grill over indirect heat for 1.5-2 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 150*F. Remove from the grill for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
You will likely need to flip the ribs a few times during the grilling process. While you are flipping the ribs feel free to rub more of the reserved rub on them.
