Kansas City Style Ribs

Sweet and mildly spicy pork ribs are an undeniably delicious meal for a BBQ party. This recipe will serve roughly five or six people and requires about 20 minutes of preparation and should be slow-cooked on a grill or smoker for five hours.

Ingredients for Sauce:

  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 cup of ketchup
  • ¼ cup of vinegar, brown sugar, and water
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper

Ingredients for the Rub:

  • 1 tablespoon of black pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and chili powder
  • ¼ cup of paprika
  • ½ cup of brown sugar

You can find all the ingredients above at FreshDirect!


Cooking Instructions:

  • Remove the membrane from the ribs on the bottom. Trimming off any excess fat is optional
  • Preheat your grill or smoker (from Traeger) to around 220F
  • Combine all of the rub ingredients into a bowl and season your ribs with the rub and let sit for about 20 minutes. Then place them on your heat source
  • Now start working on the sauce and heat up a saucepan using olive oil at a light temperature. First, add the garlic until lightly brown, then add the remaining ingredients and let simmer for about 15 minutes
  • Add the barbecue sauce one hour before the ribs are done. After the final hour of cooking, it’ll be ready to eat

Cooking Tips:

  • About halfway through the slow cooking time (roughly 2.5 hours) feel free to wrap your ribs in aluminum foil. This will keep the ribs juicier. Remove the foil during the last hour of cooking right as you are applying the BBQ sauce.

BBQ Burgers

Here’s a simple recipe that will have you eating in under 25 minutes. With a prep time of about 10 minutes and a cooking time of around 12, this simple option results in a delicious pack of grilled meats. This recipe works best on a wood-based grill where you can customize the smoky flavor of the wood pellets you buy. The added flavor will really make this recipe pop and make the meat perfectly grilled.


  • A pound of ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper
  • A beaten egg
  • 1 tablespoon of barbecue sauce
  • ¼ cup of chopped white onions
  • 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic

Cooking Instructions:

  • Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl
  • Fire up your grill to around 300 F
  • Shape your bowl of ingredients into patties using either your hands or a burger press
  • Grill your patties for about 6-7 minutes before turning them over with a spatula
  • Wait another 6 minutes and then take them off the grill
  • Serve your burgers on buns and any kind of toppings that you desire. Enjoy!

Cooking Tips:

  • Feel free to brush your burgers with even more barbecue sauce once they are done cooking. Be sure to do this within a minute or two of taking them off the grill.
  • Get a water spray bottle and put some water and apple cider vinegar inside. Spray them once in a while to moisten them.  Don’t spray too hard though as the pressure may blow up the smoke and dust from the charcoal.
  • Don’t press down too hard on your patties while they are on the grill with your spatula or you will end up having a dryer and less juicy burger.

Now that you have a couple of delicious recipes to go with your new grill, it’s time to invite people over for some outdoor BBQ fun. Because no summer is truly complete without a few good backyard gatherings to go along with it.

Instead of crackin’ a cold beer with your meats, we suggest our readers try sake. It has been a tradition in Japan to pair great steaks with sake and Tippsy has you covered. Discover new sakes delivered directly to your door!
