Best Barbecue Ribs Ever

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  1. Combine the brown sugar, chili powder, 1 tablespoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, the oregano, cayenne, garlic powder and onion powder in a small bowl and rub the mixture on both sides of the ribs. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. In a roasting pan, combine the broth and vinegar. Add the ribs to the pan. Cover with foil and tightly seal. Bake 2 hours. Remove the ribs from the pan and place them on a platter. Pour the liquid from the pan into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook until reduced by half. Add the barbecue sauce.

Barbecue Chicken

Barbecue Chicken

  • 3 pounds bone-in chicken parts
  • 1/3 cup McCormick® Grill Mates® Barbecue Rub
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, (optional)
  1. Season chicken evenly with Rub. Refrigerate 30 minutes, if desired.
  2. Prepare grill for indirect medium-low heat (250°F to 325°F). Preheat the grill by turning all burners to high with the lid closed. Turn off burner(s) on one side of the grill. Turn the burner on the other side to medium-low. Place chicken on the unlit side of the grill. Close lid.
  3. Note: To maintain medium-low heat (250°F to 325°F), keep the lid closed and adjust the lit burner as necessary. Directions were developed using a gas grill. Grills vary; cooking time is approximate.
  4. Grill for 40 to 45 minutes or until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the chicken is 165°F, turning occasionally. Move chicken to the lit side of the grill with the skin-side down. Turn the lit side of the grill to high.
  5. Grill, uncovered, 3 to 5 minutes longer or until chicken is lightly charred, turning once and brushing with BBQ sauce if desired.
