Prepare Grill to Medium Heat.

  1. On my hot grill, I place my ribs about 5 inches above the coals.  

  2. I cook them between 5 to 7 minutes per side or until they are lightly browned.  Now, I brush my Bar-B-Q sauce over the ribs and make sure that I get all sides. 

  3. I keep grilling for 6 to 8 minutes per side.  I want my ribs tender and well glazed.

Cowboy Did You Know
The arrival of English-speaking settlers in Texas began in 1821, while California did not see a large influx of settlers from the United States until after the Mexican-American War. However, in slightly different ways, both areas contributed to the evolution of the iconic American cowboy.  Particularly with the arrival of railroads, and an increased demand for beef in the wake of the Civil War, older traditions combined with the need to drive cattle from the ranches where they were raised to the nearest railheads, often hundreds of miles away.
