Serves 4


1 tsp. salt

2 tsp. pepper, ground black

2 tsp. paprika

1 tsp. sugar

2 lbs. country-style pork ribs

2 c. hickory smoking chips


Rinse ribs and pat dry. Mix salt, pepper, paprika and sugar. Rub seasoning into ribs, cover and place in the fridge for 3 hours.

Soak chips in 2 liters of water for 20 minutes. Drain. Wrap tightly in foil and poke four small holes into the package. Preheat gas grill on high for 15 minutes, with foil package placed directly on burner shields. Once the chips are smoking turn one burner off and the other to medium-low. Place meat on cold side of grill. Grill for 40 minutes, making sure temperature stays around 200F. Flip, and cook for an additional 40 minutes. Serve.
