Thibeault's Table Greek-style Baby Back Pork Ribs

Home Cookin Chapter: Recipes From Thibeault's Table

1 or 2 Racks of Baby Back Pork Ribs
2 to 3 garlic cloves
dried oregano
Juice of 1 to 2 lemons
Lemon zest (Optional)
salt and pepper

Mince garlic and press with back of knife to turn into a paste. (or use a microplane)

Rub ribs with garlic, rub on oregano, salt and pepper and lemon zest ifusing. Squeeze juice of whole lemons over ribs a few hours before cooking.

Note: These can be marinated earlier in the day or overnight, but do not add the lemon juice until a few hours before grilling or the lemon will change the texture of the meat.

If using a gas or grill: Heat grill to high (both sides) Place ribs on one side of grill and turn that side off.

If using a charcoal grill: Use the indirect method of grilling (meat not directly over the fuel source.)

Cook, turning occasionally until ribs are tender.

Each grill will vary, but on Ann's (and my) grill (using the INDIRECT cooking method)
they take about 45 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the ribs.

They may take a little less time, or a little longer; depending upon your grill.
