Preparation Notes

Be sure to glaze toward the end of the cooking time. Otherwise the glaze will burn before the ribs are done.


  1. Mix maple syrup, mustard, brown sugar, hot sauce, and soy sauce. Set glaze aside.

  2. Create indirect fire with foil drip pan half-filled with water.

  3. Lay ribs on rack over drip pan and brush with glaze.

  4. Cover and cook for 1 hour 15 minutes, turning and basting every 15 minutes.

  5. Move ribs to hot side of grill. Brush with glaze, cover, and grill for 5 minutes.

  6. Repeat, turning and basting, until ribs are tender and brown (about 20 minutes).
