How To Make Memphis-Style Pork Ribs

These Memphis-style pork ribs feature a flavorful dry rub that gets absorbed into the meat as it’s being cooked. Simply drool-worthy.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 5 hours
Total: 5 hours 10 minutes



  • ¼cupsweet paprika
  • ½cupbrown sugar
  • 1tbspblack pepper
  • 1tbspgarlic powder
  • 2tspcumin
  • 2tspsalt
  • 2tspcayenne
  • 1tspdry mustard
  • ½tspcelery seed
  • ½tspdried oregano
  • 2st. louis cut,or spare rib racks


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together. Rub them all over the ribs and, if you have time, set them in the fridge overnight.

  2. Get your grill or smoker going. Make sure you have a spot to put the ribs that is not directly over the heat source. Lay the ribs down. Cover the grill for an hour.

  3. Every hour or so after that, turn and rotate the ribs so they cook evenly. Serve when done.
