Maple Glazed Ribs
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!
We are just a few days away from Memorial Day weekend. Are you ready to fire up the grill yet? Well, we are heading out on vacation over the weekend, but I will still be grilling on our vacation too, so I’m ready! Of course, I’ll also have my toes in the sand…so come on weekend!
This past weekend, I picked up Smithfield® Extra Tender Spare Ribs at Walmart to grill up for our friends and family. We also like to use their baby back ribs too. 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. 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.
Maple Glazed Ribs
Yield: 1 Rack of Ribs
- 1 Rack of Extra Tender Ribs
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Tsp Garlic Salt
- 1 Tsp Onion Powder
- 1 Tbsp Rosemary
- 1 Tsp Dill Weed
- 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
- Combine the sugar, salt, onion powder, rosemary and dill weed in a small bowl.
- Coat one side of ribs with the rub, then lightly brush on the maple syrup.
- Let the ribs sit for 2 hours to fully soak the glaze in.
- Cook on the grill on medium-high heat for about 20-25 minutes, rotating on each side until fully cooked.
These ribs are hand-trimmed and extra-tender. They are also so juicy especially paired with the Maple Glaze. They have no hormones or steroids, making them a wonderful choice.
These ribs are perfect for summer cookouts, I am definitely looking forward to enjoying some again soon!
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!
