There is nothing better than a family dinner and my family is lucky enough to have Big Tony Brown in our clan. My cousin’s husband, Big Tony Brown, is a bit of a BBQ legend in the Pacific Northwest so I was thrilled when Tony offered to grill up some ribs for our family dinner last night.
Of course, I had to pick his brain for some of his grilling secrets. Here is the inside scoop for grilling pork ribs on a gas grill.Prep: 1. Remove the membrane from pork ribs. 2. Apply dry rub to the entire piece of meat, even the back of the rack. 3. Let meat sit overnight (if time permits). Cooking Instructions: 4. Cook ribs on low to medium heat for 1 hour. 5. Remove ribs from grill and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. 6. Put ribs back on grill, cook on medium to medium-high heat for 1 hour. 7. Remove ribs from foil and grill on high for 7-8 minutes. 8. Remove from grill and baste with choice sauce.
Note: Tony is not one to brag and did not even specify which sauce to use for the ribs… so I will do it for him. Big Tony Brown has dry rubs and spicy or mild sauces that are out of this world delicious. You can order all of his products online here. Or, you can find Tony’s products in select gourmet grocers throughout Oregon and Northern California.
For you salivating Bay Area locals, Tony will be grilling at the Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary Festival tomorrow. He will be stationed at the east end of Marina Green (across from Safeway). See you there!
P.S. We paired Tony’s BBQ with Barefoot Contessa’s Panzanella Salad, which went perfectly with the ribs.
