Lemon Pepper Rubbed Back Ribs Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons sea salt

  • 1 tablespoon ground white pepper

  • 1 tablespoon onion powder

  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

  • 1? teaspoons dried lemon peel

  • teaspoon ground apple pie spice

How to Make Lemon Pepper Rubbed Back Ribs

  1. About one hour before smoking, make the dry rub. Combine sugar, salt, white pepper, onion powder, cayenne pepper, lemon peel and apple pie spice in small bowl; mix well. Coat both sides of ribs with a little vegetable oil and sprinkle with lemon pepper rub. Set aside at room temperature for 1 hour.

  2. Heat charcoal or gas grill for indirect cooking at 230 to 250 degrees F. Add drained wood chips, if using.

  3. Place the ribs, meaty side down, over a drip pan and cook for 2 hours. If desired, spray both sides of ribs with apple juice. Add about 12 coals to a charcoal grill every 45 minutes or so to maintain the heat.

  4. Remove ribs from grill. Double-wrap each rack in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Return wrapped ribs to the grill and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours more over indirect heat, until very tender. Add more coals as needed to maintain temperature for a charcoal grill.

Lemon Pepper Rubbed Back Ribs Reviews

  • The best lemon pepper ribs Ive tasted These ribs are perfect for those that are looking for a rib recipe that doesnt have sauce slathered all over them. I used soaked apple wood chips for the smoking.

  • Aaaammmmmazzzziiinnngggggg

  • I used technique of simmering ribs with water, little bit of wine, and pickling spice for a couple hours. I then drained and dried the ribs, basted with apple juice and oil. Then topped with dry rub of brown sugar, apple pie spice, and club house lemon pepper. I still sit for a couple hours then barbecued for 30 minutes basting often with apple juice mixture.
