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.
Maple Glazed Ribs
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. Something about it puts me in my happy place.
I’d say that it likely puts our dogs in their happy place too because when we are cooking ribs, they are not far from us. Anxiously awaiting those drops to just fall down and grace their tongues…yep, gotta love dogs.
I wouldn’t be too conservative on that glaze either, the more the better in my opinion.
Why be conservative with maple syrup?

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 make 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.
