Using everyday pantry staples, this recipe for grilled spareribs includes both a tasty marinade and a classic homemade barbecue sauce.
- Serves: 6 persons
- 3to 4 pounds spareribs (cut into serving-size portions)
- For the Marinade:
- 1cup hot water
- ⅓cup vinegar
- 3tablespoons brown sugar

- For the Sauce:
- ⅓cup vinegar
- ⅔cup ketchup

Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Arrange ribs in a nonreactive container , such as a deep glass dish or stainless steel.
Step 3Combine marinade ingredients in a bowl.
Step 4Pour the hot marinade over the ribs. Cover and refrigerate the ribs for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Step 5Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl. Heat charcoal grill , if you are using. If you are using a gas grill, heat the grill to medium.
Step 6Remove the ribs from the marinade (discard the marinade) and place them on the grill. Let the meat sear over the hot grill.
Step 7Turn ribs over and sear the other side. Baste the ribs with the barbecue sauce.
Step 8Continue to cook the ribs, turning and frequently basting, until tender, about 50 to 60 minutes. Keep watch to avoid any flare-ups on the grill, as that will char the meat.
Step 9The ribs are finished when they feel tender in the thickest sections. Serve the ribs with your favorite barbecue sides, such as baked beans, coleslaw, and grilled corn.
