Yield: 4 Servings
|5 pounds||Beef back ribs; cut into 4 sections|
|1 medium||Onion; grated|
|2 tablespoons||Fresh lemon juice|
|1 teaspoon||Hot pepper sauce|
|½ teaspoon||Crushed red pepper pods|
Combine catsup, water, onion, lemon juice, pepper sauce and pepper pods in small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cook slowly, uncovered, 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally; keep warm. Prepare grill for indirect cooking (see notes). Place beef back ribs, meat side up, on grid centered over drip pan. Cover cooker. Grill ribs 45 to 60 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally. Brush reserved sauce over ribs and continue grilling, covered, 10 minutes. To prepare grill for indirect cooking, arrange equal amount of briquets on each side of grill. Place aluminum foil drip pan in center between coals. Coals are ready when ash-covered, approximately 30 minutes. Make sure coals are burning equally on both sides. Uncovered Grilling Directions: Place ribs, meat side down, in center of double-thick rectangle of heavy duty aluminum foil. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons water over rib bones. To form packets, bring two opposite sides of aluminum foil together over top of ribs. Fold edges over 3 to 4 times pressing crease in tightly each time. (Allow some air space.) Flatten aluminum foil at both ends; crease to from triangle and fold each end over several times toward packet, pressing tightly to seal. Place packets on grid over low to medium coals. Grill 2 hours or until tender, turning packets over every ½ hour.
Remove ribs from packets and place on grid. Continue grilling 10 to 20 minutes, turning once. Brush sauce over ribs; continue cooking 10 minutes.
To check temperature, cautiously hold hand about 4 inches above coals. Low to medium coals will force removal of hand in 4 to 5 seconds.
