Grilled Beef Back Ribs
I love to do a dry rub and let that do the work of tenderizing the ribs before cooking. Making a dry rub is super easy because you can use any combination of spices. Just make sure that you add a generous amount of sugar to do the tenderizing. This is a great recipe that will give you an unforgettable meal!
