Grilled Pork Spare Ribs with Herb Mop

pork ribs on a plate


  • One full rack of pork spare ribs
  • Salt and pepper to sprinkle
  • 1 ½ cups vinegar
  • 1 t. Tabasco
  • ½ t chili pepper flakes
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • ½ t. black pepper
  • 1 T kosher salt

Heat the grill to medium. Pork is most tender when grilled low and slow. Rub the ribs with salt and pepper and grill.

Mix together the vinegar, Tabasco, chili pepper flakes, brown sugar, black pepper and Kosher salt.  Tie a bunch of assorted herbs to the end of a long wooden spoon.  Use the herbs as a mop for the basting mixture.  Mop every 5 – 10 minutes until the ribs are done and pull away from the bone.
