Ribs with a Potato Chip Rub

Ribs with a Potato Chip Rub

  • Rating:


1 slab of USDA certified ribs, cut in half
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp dry mustard
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tsp piment d’espelette
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp salt


Mix all the spices together, then heavily rub onto both sides of the ribs, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

With all burners blazing or crimson charcoal, sear the rib pieces on the fat side.  Turn off the burners on one side of the grill, or scrape the charcoal to one side, then put the ribs, fat side up, on the cold side of the grill, put the top down and grill for about an 1 1/2 – 2 hours.

Note:  Store left over spice mix in a jar for next time.  In other words, there’s more than enough for another time or two.
