Dibs On My Ribs Favorite Recipe and Walmart Card Giveaway

Who likes ribs?  If grilling is your thing then ribs are your game.

That doesn’t make a lot of sense, but seriously ribs are one of the best grilling foods out there.  Recipes can be complicated with rubs and herbs and marinades – or you can just slap some sauce on them and fire them up.

It’s your choice.

My choice?  I marinade everything in italian dressing.  Not for long – maybe an hour just long enough to flavor.  Then I throw on a rub on my Tyson ribs (this time I used McCormick Grill Mates Sweet and Smoky Rub) and lather them with sauce - Kraft Original BBQ Sauce for this recipe.  Save some sauce for halfway through the grilling process. I also used a grilling rack which allows the air to circulate for even cooking.  The result? Sweet, smokey, a bit of spice and a lot of flavor.

Serve them on a your best china.  They. are. that. good.

  10. Sarah S says

    Marinade made with pineapple juice, plenty of herbs and spices and some red curry paste.

  11. Renski says

    My “recipie” is to have my father make his family famous ribs. All I know is that the sauce is vinegar based.

  12. Cynthia C says

    I like my chicken breasts marinated in olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, mint and oregano.

  13. Lim says

    Take one cast iron skillet, add butter and an onion, chopped so you have circles. Sir every few minutes until golden brown and delicious!

  14. Sharon says

    I like grilling veggies with butter. Put them in foil and let them sit for 20 minutes on the grill

  17. Cindy Merrill says

    Wrap bacon & thin apple slices in provolone, then roll up in turkey breast slices: Place in tin foil, grill 30 min. Yummy.

    My favorite grill recipe is always use real wood- smoke things low and slow- we love making pork chops on the grill!

  19. says

    I love to barbeque (well get my husband to anyway) fruit to go with the meat! Thanks for a chance to win and have a great day!

  20. Denise S says

    My husband throws things together off the top of his head and its always great.

  21. says

    We grill all the time. No season is safe from the smell of charcoal. We recently did our own spin on beer-can chicken. Amazing.

  22. Helen Stockwell says

    Spareribs out on the grill with real coals, smoothered in BBQ sauce and juicy!

  23. ky2here says

    Anything savory – I’m not a fan of the brown sugar sweet BBQ. I like a garlic powder, lemon pepper and adobo rub.

  24. Derek T says

    I love any kind of ribs on the grill, with Mad Dog And Merill BBQ sauce! I always like to eat my ribs with a side of potatoes.

  25. Cheryl Reinhardt says

    I love grilling Chicken Kabobs with veggies and pinapple with a lime sauce.

  26. Roxann says

    I don’t really have a recipe. I par boil the ribs so they get tender then put them om the grill with lots of sauce. Cook until a bit blackened and then enjoy!

  27. Aimee Fontenot says

    I like anything grilled, but I usually don’t follow recipes. I just use premade rubs or seasonings most of the time and slap some sweet/spicy BBQ sauce on at the end.

  28. Debbie C says

    I have lots of grill favorites. One is to marinate boneless chicken breasts in plain yogurt with a little lemon juice or garlic added to it. I leave the yogurt on when I grill the chicken and it cooks away leaving the most deliciously tender and moist chicken ever.


  29. Eileen Burke says

    I love my mother in laws bbq sauce recipe, so good! Sweet and tangy, perfect for ribs or for chicken.

  30. Jamie Brigham says

    My favorite grill recipe definitely is my home made baby back ribs, I use emeril’s rib rub and Tony Roma’s Carolina Honey BBQ sauce.

  31. Karen says

    Boneless chicken breast soaking all night long in the state fair sauce and then grilled to perfection.

  32. Katharina says

    I don’t really have recipes for my favorite grill foods… grilled burgers (yum!)
    ribs with lots of bbq sauce, chicken with bbq sauce, and brats with onion
    and peppers. Now I’m hungry! :-) Katharina

  33. Diana Stanhope says

    My favorite is to slice squash and wrap it foil with butter and Cajun seasoning and then grill until tender.

  34. Jill says

    My husband is the bbq chef at our house and I’m just the taste tester. If I make ribs, it’s in the crockpot with an onion and a thing of bbq sauce

  35. Tanya White says

    we like our ribs crispy on the outside so we use mustard to coat the ribs before grilling them they turn out fantastic.

  36. justine says

    My fave grill recipe would be to take your fave sauce, mine is Sweet Baby Rays, but be sure to season and tenderize your ribs first…get that grill nice and hot and turn frequently, YUM!

  37. susan smoaks says

    hubby does all the grilling but i do make a mean grilled onion, take an onion, peel it cut a cross in the top, slap some butter in the cross and salt and pepper, then wrap in foil and grill it, it’s so yummy!

  38. clynsg says

    Possibly one of the few in the US, but we don’t have a grill, so don’t have a special recipe. Love eating someone else’s though.

    Marinate the ribs over night and start slow cooking them in the morning. Eight hours later it is time to eat

    Babyback ribs – marinate overnight in orange juice, next morning pat them dry and glaze with sweet mustard bbq sauce and refrigerate for several hours. then cook low and slow until just ready to fall off the bone.

  48. Lucy Schwartz says

    We love the sauces at Tony Roma’s and have purschased them for use at home and that is the best way we like ribs wither Baked or grilled.
