Baby Back Ribs

Nothing says summer like grilling out. There is something so laid back & relaxing about cooking outdoors. We had some guests over for this meal Friday evening & everyone really enjoyed themselves. These ribs were definitely the star of the show.

Oh, you might have noticed the "My Grill Friday" logo at the top of this post. I'm participating in a Friday grilling event that Rachel is hosting over at Coconut & Lime. Look for more grilling recipes here every Friday.

1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon orange zest
2 tablespoons paprika
3 teaspoons dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 pounds baby back ribs*

*Our butcher cut the ribs for us*

Combine all ingredients for dry rub. Rub all over ribs. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Preheat the grill to medium heat.

Place ribs on grill for 40 to 45 minutes, turning occasionally until meat is tender and crisp on the outside.
