These Extra Tender Peach Ginger Charcoal Grilled Ribs will make your mouth water just by looking them.
Spring is finally here and that means it’s time to get outside and fire up the grill. Grilling is one of the easiest ways to prepare the perfect ribs, especially when you use a charcoal grill. It really pretty easy and doesn’t require much: a charcoal grill, some charcoal, lighter fluid and lighter, and of course my favorite ribs, Smithfield Extra Tender Back Ribs.
They are always hand-trimmed, extra-tender and juicy. And even better because you can pick them up during your weekly grocery shopping trip at your local Walmart. There is also a great opportunity on Smithfield’s Get Grilling America site; which includes an opportunity to win $5,000 cash, plus multiple other prizes throughout the summer. That right there would get me grilling.
I love a good BBQ sauce but thought a homemade peach-ginger sauce would be a perfect combination for the 70 degree Spring day we had today. Plus it only has 4 ingredients and that I can do. Smithfield Ribs website also has some yummy rib recipes if your up for trying something new.
How to make our Extra Tender Peach-Ginger Charcoal Grilled Ribs
Recipe for glaze:
- 3/4 Cup Peach Preserves or (1 cup fresh peaches (washed, peeled, and sliced) mixed with 3/4 cup sugar, boil over medium-low heat, mash, and let cool)
- 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
- 1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
How to easily charcoal grill your Smithfield Fresh Pork:
- Remove the grilling rack from your grill, pour your charcoal into your charcoal grill so your base is evenly covered, and form into a pyramid (or use a chimney style charcoal starter).
- Squirt a good amount of lighter fluid onto your charcoal pyramid, carefully light in a few different spots with a long grill lighter, and let it burn down for about 15 minutes with the lid open.
- When your charcoal is evenly heated, push your charcoal to one side of the grill, place a disposable foil pan filled with water on the opposite side, and place your grilling rack back on.
- Unwrap your Smithfield Fresh Pork and place it bone side down onto the grilling rack.
- Close the vent halfway on the grill (opening this vent allows more oxygen in making the coals hotter) and close the top.
- Using a small mixing bowl, combine your peach preserves, brown sugar, ground ginger, and sesame oil and mix well. Set 1/4 cup aside for dipping.
- Let your ribs cook for 1 1/2-2 hours, glaze your ribs with your homemade peach-ginger sauce and cook for a remaining 30-60 minutes or until your rib meat reaches a temperature of 205 F (93 C).
- Slice your ribs and enjoy with an extra side of peach-ginger sauce.
Smithfield also partners with Budweiser, Kingsford Charcoal, KC Masterpiece Barbeque Sauce, and Tabasco to meet your grilling needs.
Here’s some tips and tricks for easy charcoal grilling:
- Evenly heat your charcoal for at least 15 minutes before placing your ribs onto the grill.
- Move your coals over to one side of the grill and place your ribs onto the grill on the opposite side as the charcoal. This will use indirect heat at a low temperature to cook your ribs.
- Place a small foil pan filled with water under the grill rack on the opposite side as your charcoal. This will keep the ribs from being dry.
- Wrap your ribs in foil for the last 30 minutes of cooking to make sure they don’t get too crispy. I love my ribs a little crisp but just incase you don’t.
- Smithfield Ribs are really the secret weapon for making great ribs on the grill, you can grill some great ribs no matter your skill level. I know from experience.
