So easy.



Preheat grill to high heat.

Combine cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper in a small lidded jar and shake to mix.

Sprinkle as much of the spice mix on to both sides of the ribs as desired but do not rub the spices heavily in to the ribs. If you have extra spice leftover, store it for future use.

If you do not have a drip pan for your grill you can make one with aluminum foil to prevent flare-ups. Lay ribs on the grill. Reduce heat to low, close lid, and leave undisturbed for 1 hour. Brush ribs with the barbecue sauce and grill an additional 5 minutes.

  • 1 Tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 lbs. baby back pork ribs
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce


Preheat grill for high heat.

In a small jar, combine cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Close the lid and shake to mix.

Trim the membrane sheath from the back of each rack of ribs. Run a small, sharp knife between the membrane of each rib and snip off the membrane as much as possible. Sprinkle as much of the rub onto both sides of the ribs as desired. To prevent the ribs from becoming too dark and spicy, do not thoroughly rub the spices into the ribs. Store the unused portion of the spice mix for future use.

Place aluminum foil on lower rack to capture drippings and prevent flare-ups. Lightly oil grate, and lay ribs on top rack of grill. Reduce heat to low, close lid, and leave undisturbed for 1 hour. Do not lift lid at all.

Brush ribs with barbecue sauce, and grill an additional 5 minutes. Serve ribs as whole rack or cut between each rib bone and pile individually on a platter.

My friend brought me a big rack of ribs before heading out of town. As it's so hot in Southern California, I decided to make them outside on the outdoor griddle. This was super easy to do and I barely had to tend to them. I gave it a spice rub, put it on the heat, flipped it once, then brushed it with my favourite barbecue sauce. They were perfect!

You can use a grill or an oven for this in the same amount of time, using the same heat.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin

  • 2/3 cup barbecue sauce


  1. In a bowl, mix the chili powder, cumin, garlic, and paprika together.
  2. Use a sharp knife to cut the membrane between each rib on the back.
  3. Sprinkle some salt and pepper and the spice rub mixture onto the ribs. Repeat on other side.
