the Ingredients

20151023095349 Ttg Pork 31


  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Leitern Kotelettrippchen, je ca. 910 g
  • 240 millilitres store-bought barbecue sauce

Special Equipment

  • 1 handful of hickory wood chips
  • heavy-duty aluminum foil (46 centimetres wide)


  • 01 Soak the wood chips in water for at least 30 minutes.
  • 02 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (180°C to 230°C).
  • 03 In a small bowl mix the rub ingredients.
  • 04 Using a dull dinner knife, slide the tip under the membrane covering the back of each rack of ribs. Lift and loosen the membrane until it breaks, then grab a corner of it with a paper towel and pull it off.
  • 05Season each rack evenly with the rub. Using four 46 × 60 centimetre sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil, double wrap each rack in its own packet.
  • 06Brush the cooking grates clean. Place the ribs on the grill over direct medium heat , close the lid, and cook for 1 hour, occasionally turning the packets over for even cooking, making sure not to pierce the foil.
  • 07Remove the packets from the grill and let rest for about 10 minutes. Carefully open the foil packets, remove the ribs and discard the rendered fat and foil.
  • 08Drain and add the wood chips to the charcoal or to the smoker box of a gas grill, following the manufacturer’s instructions, and close the lid. When the wood begins to smoke, return the racks to the grill, bone-side down. Grill over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until they are sizzling and lightly charred, 10 to 12 minutes, turning and basting once or twice with the sauce. Remove from the grill and let rest for about 5 minutes. Cut into individual ribs and serve warm with any remaining sauce.
