Ribs + Grill = ???
I say that purely because before this post, we had never grilled ribs before…never…ever. So this was an adventure to say the least. Walmart actually had the Tyson Pork Spareribs on sale for $1.97/lb so I bought two slabs (I had no clue if one slab would be enough for 5 adults and 2 children).
This was definitely a learning experience…

McCormick Spices + Kraft BBQ Sauce = a great flavor for some grilled ribs
So my ‘Dibs on My Ribs’ goes something like this:

6 oz. of vanilla flavored yogurt
1 package of McCormick Grill Mates® Brown Sugar Bourbon Marinade
1/3 cup of Kraft Thick ‘n Spicy Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce

Mix those three ingredients together and then slather it all over your ribs. Cover. Let the ribs sit for five to six hours.

Grill your ribs over indirect heat (this rib rack that was sent to me is an awesomely cool product that lets you stand the ribs up to grill!) – for about two and half hours if you want them well done, basting with the sauce mix when required.

Grilled Pork Spareribs + Family = great food and fun around the table
Everyone really enjoyed the ribs – we had more than enough to go around the table.
My husband grilled them for about 1 hour 45 minutes over low heat, and there was still some pink in the middle.

Grill Mates® Brown Sugar Bourbon Marinade + Kraft Thick ‘n Spicy Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce = not as spicy as you might think
I originally added the yogurt to my ‘mix’ as I thought the marinade mix and spicy brown sugar barbecue sauce would be too ‘hot’ for the little ones taste buds.
But this combination of thick barbecue sauce and slightly tangy marinade was toned down by the grilling process (and likely the yogurt) with enough flavor but not a lot of kick in the end.
