We couldn't let you have an American BBQ without some classic BBQ ribs! This simple smokey marinade will make your ribs so flavoursome. You can easily make up the marinade and have them in the fridge overnight, ready to cook them quickly and easily on the BBQ. Combine these with some grilled BBQ corn and potatoes and you have a complete meal in under 30 minutes.

- On the underside of the ribs, use a sharp knife to get between the ribs and the membrane. Once you get some distance, use a teaspoon or your fingers to remove the whole membrane. This will be more difficult with beef ribs than it will with pork ribs. Discard the membrane.

- When you are ready to cook the ribs, fire up the BBQ.
- Flame grill ribs for 2-4 minutes on each side.
- Allow them to cool slightly before cutting along the meaty in-between part of the ribs, allowing the ribs to be in single serves.
