Finally got good results BBQing some riblets quickly but getting them tender.

  • 2-6 Boneless Country Ribs


I’ve been trying to get these boneless country-style ribs from Whole Foods to come out right. Tonight I finally had a success.

The problem was that I had been rushing them, cooking burgers for Evelyn which really require quite a lot less time. But, the ribs really take 30 minutes to do, where the burgers take more like 10.

So for this one I fired up the coals for around 20 minutes, and put them all along half of the grill. I put the riblets on over the coals for a minute or two per side, to get the temperature of them jacked up.

Then I moved them to the side away from the coals and put some BBQ sauce on them. I let them cook for a solid 10 to 15 minutes, then turned them and put BBQ sauce on the other side. Then I put the burgers on, flipped the riblets, cooked for 5 minutes, flipped them both again, and called it good.

The operating theory here is get the temperature up and hold it to help break down the meat and make it more tender. The results were dinner was done fairly quickly, but the meat got quite tender.

My previous attempts were just too tough.
