The Unlimited Tips: How To BBQ Ribs On Any Kinds Of Grill

Many people enjoy bbq ribs and the sweet rich smoky aroma of barbecued ribs is not only appetizing during family reunions and Thanksgiving. Aside from the initial setup and labor involved, bbq is simply one of the cooking processes that produce delicious meals and recipes. Most people find it relatively easy to bbq meat steaks, but have a challenge when it comes to ribs. The truth is ribs are not any difficulty to bbq than steaks if you know what is needed. Once you have set up your bbq and rack, and prepared your ribs, the procedures are more or less the same. Here is a brief description of how to bbq ribs (adult or baby ribs). The process may differ slightly depending on what ribs (pork, beef…) you are barbequing.

Grill preparation

The first step in rib barbequing is grill preparation. Make sure the grill is cleaned and ready for your barbeque. Ribs, meat and fish often leave their unique flavors on the rack so make a practice to clean, dry and air your grill once you are done smoking or grilling. Place the grill on a solid spot where you will bbq your ribs.

Rib preparation

Rib preparation simply involves skinning away all the extra fat layers that are not required for the bbq. It also involves cleaning rinsing and patting dry the ribs as well as portioning. This should not take a lot of time since you can buy ribs that are already skinned and bbq-ready. If not, you will have to do the portioning and preparation on your own. Remove excess (thicker parts) fat and make them evenly sized. Most people prefer square but you can make rectangular cuts if you wish. Remove excess bone and loose meat from the rack and make sure the remaining rib has even thickness.

Rubbing and flavoring

This is a very important step in rib bbq especially since it involves enriching the flavor of your outcome. If you are wondering where the dense wonderful aroma of grilled bbq comes from, then this is the step that does it all (well, in addition to the actual grilling). Before you start barbequing your ribs, make sure they are moist enough and devoid of any loose fat layer (which should be skinned during rib preparation). You should only start rubbing your ribs after trimming and rinsing. Using your recipe, gently rub the flavor on all sides of the rib including sides and endings. Do not overdo it since this may overpower the natural flavor of your ribs, something you should be keen to retain. Nevertheless, you can rub in as much as the natural moisture (of the meat) can hold. Sometimes rubbing will take up to an hour depending on the size of your bbq. However, do not take too long as this may interfere with the end flavor, giving your ribs a ham-like taste.

Actual bbq instruction

The actual grilling should be easy since the tough part of cutting, trimming and rubbing is done. Here, you can simply follow a cook recipe that you love if you have no idea on how to bbq ribs. A typical recipe includes a few herbs and spices for flavoring (used in the above step), pepper, salt and some sauce. You can pick from the wide list of available flavors. If you have no leads, start with a tablespoon of ground cumin, chili powder and paprika and a cup of barbecue sauce. 1 pound of baby pork ribs should take roughly 25 minutes to barbecue following preparation.

Using gas grill

If you are using a gas grill, preheat the grill to allow the rack to absorb high heat prior to grilling. Meanwhile, apply some oil on the grate. Combine your flavors (in this case cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt and pepper) in one jar and shake gently then sprinkle some on each rib rack. Take an aluminum foil and place on the lower rack to collect your drippings and excess fluid. This is helpful in preventing flare ups that may spoil your natural flavor. Place your ribs on the upper rack and reduce the heat to low. Close your grill lid and leave it undisturbed for an hour. Open the grill and brush your ribs with barbecue sauce on both sides. You can then grill for an additional five to 10 minutes before removing and serving.

Using pellet or charcoal grill 

Pellet grills have become the new trend when most people thought they would be outdated. Pellets have reemerged in the grilling world and can help you get the savory smoky flavor of vintage grills. Pellets resemble conventional stainless steel grills only that they feature an extra hopper on the back. You fuel the grill using small quarter inch cylindrical wood pellet and the hoper prevents over-smoking and soot. Once you have set up the grill, your wood pellets will be on one side while the ribs on the other. Charcoal grills are pretty much the same as pellet grills. You will need to push the coal to one side unless your grill already has the separation for coal/pellet loading.

Using camping grill 

Camping grills are not any different from other types; they are simply mobile/portable (can be easily moved to your camping location). Most camping grills use pellets or charcoal since you will not readily access gas or electricity when camping. The procedures to be followed are still the same as using gas and electric grills.

Summary

Learning how to bbq ribs should not be a problem once you get past preparing the ribs. There are various tips to note downs for a quick easier bbq process. Using rack liners, for instance, may save you the post grilling cleanup task. Always remember to preheat your grill before you start to barbecue. This will establish a high heat temperature within which the ribs can cook. It also reduces the time spent in grilling. Attaining a smoky flavor with gas grills can be daunting, but there are various ways around it including attempting to throw in some smoke bombs. When grilling, remember to use indirect heat to prevent burning and drying. If your ribs are browned and too dry, you can pour a little apple juice and wrap them tightly in aluminum foil to steam for a few minutes. This should get them back to a tender state. That is how you grill a delicious pork bbq.

Grilled salmon is also packed with proteins and heart healthy fatty acids which is another reason to grill them fresh. Before grilling your salmon, it is important to prepare them depending on what you are going to use and how you prefer them grilled. You can charcoal grill salmon or use gas. You can also grill large chunks or pellets according to your own taste and meal combination. The processes are only slightly different.

Preparing salmon for grilling

This is the most vital process of grilling salmon as it will allow you to have exactly what you want regardless of the method of grilling you choose. The key to having a wonderful grill is correct timing to ensure your salmon remains tender throughout the process. When shopping, choose moist clean cuts (fillets or steaks) with a moderately firm skin that holds the salmon together. Avoid salmon with loose skin and strong fishy odor. You can grill salmon the day you purchase it which is always the best option. You can also freeze (up to 3 months) or wrap it loosely and refrigerate for up to 2 days. If frozen, thaw in the refrigerator for 2 days before grilling.

Before grilling, make sure you rinse the salmon and then pat it dry using paper towels. You can also enrich the flavor using a marinade sauce of your choice, dry rub or sprinkle with herbs and spices like thyme, basil or dill. Salmon often picks up flavor very fast so don’t worry about a 30 minutes marinade as it is all you need to have a delicious flavor or your grilled salmon.

Grilling salmon fillets and pellets

Once your salmon is prepared, you can follow the simple steps for how to grill salmon. Simply place the salmon in a grill basked that has been greased to keep it intact. You can also use a greased nonstick foil with a few slits through the foil to allow the fluid to run out after rinsing. If you prefer naked grilling, you can place your salmon directly on a greased rack and turn down the heat slightly to prevent your salmon from burning on the outside. It is recommendable to remove the burnt skin once you are done the grilling.

Grilling salmon on charcoal 

When using the charcoal grill, place the salmon directly on the grill rack and then place the rack directly on medium heat coals. Grill your salmon openly for 4-6 minutes for every inch steak until the flesh flakes when poked with a fork. Turn the salmon and brush with olive oil or other flavors like melted butter that keep it moist when grilling. You do not necessarily have to grill openly when using charcoal although this is the conventional method that will give you the characteristic flavorful smoky aroma. You can still grill then inside a wrapping.

Grilling salmon on gas 

The gas grill is not any different from charcoal. The only difference is the source of heat and final flavor, but the process is more or less the same. Simply preheat the gas grill and then turn the heat to medium. Place the salmon on the grill rack and then over heat. Cover the grill and follow the same guidelines given for charcoal grill. If your grill does not have preset values for medium low and high heat, place your hand on the position of the grill rack and determine how long you can take the heat. About 4 seconds should do for medium heat.

Knowing when the salmon is done!

To know whether your salmon is done and ready for service should not take a lot of effort. When grilling with the skin still on, let it turn brown and crisp until the fish pulls away from the skin when you turn it over on the other side. Use a fork to test the thickest part of the flesh for doneness. If the salmon is well done, the flesh should be opaque yet moist and should spread easily. A fancy way to tell if your salmon is done involves inserting a thermometer inside the thick steak. Remove the salmon when your thermometer reads an internal temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit. As a general rule of thumb, salmon should be grilled for around 8 minutes on medium heat.

Salmon grilling tips

In order to end up with a delicious grilled salmon, there are various things to take note of before you even go looking for the salmon. Always shop for fresh refrigerated salmon and plan to grill it on the same day. As aforementioned, you can freeze it for up to 3 months or refrigerate to 2 more days before grilling. However, fresh salmon usually has the richest flavor. Pay attention to the herbs, spices and other condiments used to flavor-up the salmon. Do not mix too many things or use too much so that the spice overtakes the salmon’s sweet grill flavor. If your other meals already have spices and herbs, you may only need a little pinch to make the salmon tasty and more blending. Clean your grill and let it dry before you start grilling to prevent other existing flavors from rubbing off into the salmon especially since fish picks up other flavors quite fast.

Summary

There is no distinct how to grill salmon instruction that one must follow and you can always come up with your own techniques and steps. Nonetheless, these are the basic considerations and steps used to grill fillet or steak salmon on gas and charcoal. If you are not sure what to do exactly, an illustrative grilling book or cooking DVD may help you improve your grilling skills.
