How to Grill Ribs on an Electric Grill

Ribs require a slow, long cooking process to be flavorful and tender. Grilling them on your electric grill is not only an effective way to do this, it also imparts a smoky flavor into the meat and allows the ribs to develop a brown crust without overbrowning or charring. As long as you follow a few simple steps, you can customize the flavors and texture of you ribs to match your personal preferences.

Step 1

Preheat your electric grill to medium heat. As it is preheating, trim away the fat from the ribs and prepare any seasonings or a sauce on the stove.

Step 2

Add seasonings such as fresh herbs or salt and pepper and position the ribs inside a roasting pan or wrap them in foil. Place the ribs or pan on the grill rack.

Step 3

Close the grill and cook for up to two hours or until the ribs are tender. Turn as needed. Remove the foil if necessary and brush the ribs occasionally with your sauce during the last 10 minutes of grilling time.

Step 4

Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the meat, using caution not to hit the bone. The ribs are ready when the internal temperature reads at least 160 degrees F.

Step 5

Brush the remaining sauce onto each rib and serve immediately.
