Kansas City Ribs Tips

Remove the thin white membrane off of the bone-side of the ribs. Mix together  brown sugar, dry mustard, cayenne, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Massage the rub into the ribs and let sit for 1 hour or up to overnight.

If cooking on the grill, place the ribs meat-side down next to medium-hot coals that are about 225 degrees F. The indirect heat will cook them slower, making them tender. Allow to cook for 1 hour. Turn ribs every half hour and baste with a Kansas City barbeque sauce. Cook until the ribs are tender, about 3 to 4 hours.
