You really should cook ribs on a covered grill. Because they need to be slow cooked. Which means you need the cover to hold the heat in.

But what I do is slow cook them and smother them with barbeque sauce.

What you do is get the grill up to about 300 degrees, then put the ribs on and brown them on both sides. Then smother with barbeque sauce of your choice and cover the grill and let them basically smoke. The longer the more tender they will be. When they are done the meat should fall off of the bone.

Some people say boil them first. This is ok if you are tight on time between cooking and serving. But if you have the time to cook them for about 2 hours on the grill slowly then I say do it that way. As you will have more flavor and more tender ribs.

Also are you cooking beef ribs or pork ribs.

I can do foil. Here at the college they have those out door grills cemented into the ground with no covers.

Man go to Walmart and buy one of those cheap 30 dollar charcoal grills. You will get your money out of it in no time.

The grills you are talking about are good for hot dogs and hamburgers. But you need a grill with a cover to barbeque.


Walmart.com: Weber Smokey Joe Silver Grill: Grills & Firepits

I had one of these when I was in the Corps. It is worth 3 times its cost if you use it.

This is a good one if you have a hitch on your truck.

To save time and charcoal/propane, I smother the ribs with a good rub and olive oil, put in a baking dish (big) with a little water, cover like a tent with foil and bake for roughly 2 hours at about 250 and then finish on the grill, slowly with your sauce! They are melt in your mouth every time.

Scott is totally right, you have to have a cover!!!!!!

Here at the restaurant we wrap them in foil and bake at 400 for about an hour. Then they can be thrown on the grill and and smothered in sauce and served in a reasonable amount of time. They still have the grilled taste and fall off the bone.

I do pretty much the same thing only I add Apple juice instead of water. I also use apple wood chunks on the grill.

Guess you are just going to have to wait until you move out of there.

As was suggested, I would get a cheap charcoal grill and use it to cook your ribs. Just watch the amount of coal you use in the little webber, you don't want to over cook your ribs.

I personally season my ribs with a dry rub before cooking and then add my sauce about 15 minutes before I pull them off the grill. BBQ sauce is high in sugar and sugar burns real easy on the grill. You don't want blackened ribs.
