  • Heath Riles BBQ Cherry Rub
  • Heath Riles BBQ Beef Rub
  • Heath Riles BBQ Tangy Vinegar Sauce
  • Killer Hogs Hot Sauce
  • A slab of Prairie Fresh Baby Back Ribs
  • 1/2 stick of butter


  1. Get your grill up to temperature of approximately 300º.
  2. Take your slab of ribs out of the pack, skin the membrane, and trim any excess fat.
  3. Cut your slab of ribs into single bones.
  4. Toss your ribs in Killer Hogs Hot Sauce.
  5. Season your ribs with Heath Riles BBQ Beef and Cherry Rub.
  6. Place your ribs on your grill with a heat diverter. Cook for an hour, flip after 30 minutes.
  7. After an hour, take your ribs off the grill and place in an aluminum pan. Pour a bottle of Heath Riles BBQ Tangy Vinegar BBQ Sauce over your ribs and add 1/2 a stick of butter to your pan.
  8. Place aluminum foil over your pan and place back on your grill for 30-45 minutes.
  9. Take your ribs off the grill after 30-45 minutes. If you want more heat or more of a hot sauce taste, you can pour a buffalo wing sauce or more Killer Hogs Hot Sauce over your ribs and return them to your grill to char. I did not. They were perfect for me and had the right amount of heat.
