No Wrap Ribs

Wrapped ribs, 3-2-1 method, with BBQ sauce, without BBQ sauce …there are plenty of ways to cook your ribs. This is hands down the EASIEST, no-wrap rib recipe that gives you the most flavor.



Remove silver skin from the ribs. Lightly dust the front and back sides of the ribs with AP Rub.

Place ribs on a 250-265 degree grill. Once an hour you will spritz the ribs and coat with a coat of rub. At the end of hour 1 spritz and dust with Beef.

Hour 2 spritz and dust with AP.

Hour 3 spritz and dust with Beef.

As you are coming to the end of hour 4 the ribs should be close to done. You can determine at this point if you want to redust or add sauce to the ribs as they are finishing the cooking process.

Your ribs may be done as soon as 3.5hrs depending on thickness but may take as long as 5hrs if they are very thick. Just use the bend test to determine tenderness. If the rib bends and starts to break if you pick up the full rack they are definitely done.

Grilla Grills No Wrap Ribs

It seems like everyone loves ribs, whether pork or beef, cooked on the slow-cooker or pellet grill. Pork ribs need to be cooked slowly over low heat, which is why we recommend using the Kong kamado grill, the Grilla smoker grill or the Silverbac wood pellet grill. Ever wonder what part of the pig baby back ribs come from? They usually contain loin meat and come from the back of the animal.

When it comes to cooking your ribs, spice rubs and barbecue sauce are the traditional means of seasoning. That’s why we’ve got you covered with Grilla Grills All Purpose Rub and Grills Beef Rub. No wrap baby back ribs are high in protein, minerals and vitamins, making them a go-to source of high-quality fuel for those following specific diets like keto and paleo.
