Fire up the grill and add these Maple Glazed Ribs to your cookout menu.
These are delicious without any sauces because the glaze is so juicy!
Are you ready to fire up the grill yet? I am beyond ready. I’m actually planning to grill up some chicken today for a new recipe that I’ll be sharing with you soon.
These Maple Glazed Ribs though are by far one of my favorites. I’m planning to make these sometime this upcoming week.
These ribs are great with Roasted Broccoli!
We picked up Extra Tender Spare Ribs for these, but you can really use any cut of ribs and then add the glaze. I love the extra tender though because they just melt in your mouth. They are truly that good!
My husband and I love grilling and smoking meats so these were perfect to do just that. I decided to do a Maple glaze on the ribs combining maple syrup and brown sugar.
The result was nothing short of amazing. They were juicy and full of flavor, we didn’t even need sauce.
Tips for Maple Glazed Ribs
One thing to do when grilling ribs is to rotate them after about 5 minutes on each side until well done.
I like to do this to avoid burning on the bottom side, especially on a charcoal grill.
These ribs are hand-trimmed and extra-tender. They are also so juicy especially paired with the Maple Glaze. I can just sit outside enjoy my ribs and side dishes and breathe in some fresh air.
Remember these can also be made on the pellet grill as well, using any variety of pellets that you prefer as Pellet Grilled Ribs.
I wouldn’t be too conservative on that glaze either, the more the better in my opinion.
Why be conservative with maple syrup?
What do you need to make Maple Glazed Ribs?
- Extra Tender Ribs
- Brown Sugar
- Garlic Salt
- Onion Powder
- Dill Weed
- Maple Syrup
- Charcoal (unless you are using a gas grill)
Maple Glazed Ribs
These ribs are perfect for summer cookouts, I am definitely looking forward to enjoying some again soon!
Remember to rotate the ribs so that you do not burn them on either side, that’s a key to making the perfect maple glazed ribs.
Now it’s time to fire up those grills and get your game eating face on! What other types of sides do you like to serve with ribs?
We typically do BBQ Beans, Potato Salad, Watermelon, and all sorts of things. I’d love to hear some of your favorites.
Enjoy these delicious ribs and some family fun!

Those spare ribs from Walmart look delicious! I also love the maple glaze since I’m from Ontario, Canada and we enjoy maple syrup from Quebec. That looks like a great recipe for outdoor barbecuing! Hope you enjoy it on Memorial Day weekend!
Those baby back ribs look so good! We haven’t tried grilling ribs on our own at home. Adding maple glaze will surely make the taste more interesting and delicious.

Oh my! Your ribs look amazing. I love when you combine Dill and Rosemary I think it kicks up the flavor to amazing. I needed an idea for the weekend for my family and I definitely found it. I appreciate the inspiration. I loved your photo’s by the way. Well done!
Alright, so you had me at the word Maple. I wonder if it would be to much to lay some bacon across the ribs after they have been cooking for awhile. Hmmm.. That sounds like something I would have to try. Your recipe looks good and I will have to try it, but I will have to take out the dill.

My oh my, the ribs look so juicy and mouth watering! I love easy recipes like this. Weekends are the only days I eat meat. I can’t wait to give your recipe a try.

I’m a huge fan of maple syrup…and then combining that with ribs on the grill? Yes, please! I’m thinking these ribs need to make an appearance over the long weekend! #client

My husband and I got a grill a few years ago and all we ever make on it is hot dogs and hamburgers. I told him that it was starting to get boring so we made steaks yesterday and grilled some veggies. I really want to try this next, so I book-marked it. I will let you know how it goes!

I don’t eat meat but these look fantastic! I often use maple syrup as a marinade…I love to make a maple-soy glaze for salmon. It’s delicious! I can just imagine how good these are!

Yum. I bet this makes a delicious sticky glaze. Pinned and will be including this in a grilled meat recipe roundup.
Thank you! I appreciate it!

I will try it tonight. I like the simple recipes that are great for you.
How long would you bake them for instead?
I have always done this recipe on the grill but doing them like this may work. https://www.mommyhatescooking.com/bbq-country-style-ribs I would check them after 45 minutes.
