Chipotle Apple Butter Grilled Ribs Recipe

When the temperature outside even grazes over the 60’s, we start the Spring grilling! (You know me, if it’ means less clean-up in the kitchen, then I’m totally game.  Grilling tends to keep the mess and heat outside, so it’s a definite favorite cooking technique in our house!)

Ribs… on the Grill?!?!

For YEARS, ribs intimidated me.  I wasn’t sure how to make them. Do you bake them? Smoke them?  Until I found out how easy it was to GRILL them on a charcoal grill, especially using my new favorite ribs!  My girlfriend had me over the other day, and while visiting, I saw her prepping dinner for her family.  Me, the nosey-food-loving gal, of course had to find out every little detail about what she was making.

She explained to me that one of her favorite ways to cook ribs was to grill them on her charcoal grill. After giving me the quick run-through of how she does it, I knew grilling the ribs would be in my near future.

Ribs of Choice:

Smithfield Fresh Pork “Extra Tender,” were the ribs of choice when I stopped by Walmart to attempt the grilled ribs recipe that evening. When I can get tender and juicy ribs from the start… then I’m already winning, right? I can’t wait to tell you what we put on these ribs to make them some of the most delicious ribs we’ve ever had.

Rub + Sauce:

The rub is made up of everyday ingredients, that you more than likely already have on hand, and well… the sauce may have been what caught your attention to come over here in the first place.  You all, I can’t stress enough how delicious the two ingredients (apple butter + chipotle sauce) are together.

Tip: Wrap those babies in aluminum foil after applying the Chipotle Apple Butter sauce, to really trap in the flavor and juiciness of the ribs.

  1. What an awesome idea to use apple butter combined with chipotle sauce! Now that it’s finally warm enough to grill again, this ribs recipe is going straight to the top of list. Thanks so much for sharing! #client

    1. Jessica says:

      Thank you David!! It really is delish!

  2. Judith Sternberg says:

    I don’t have a charcoal grill. I have propane or an oven. How would that work?

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Judith! You can of course cook them however you wish. I would recommend you find a recipe geared towards which cooking style you prefer, and then just use the rub and seasonings that I have here in this recipe. Good luck!

  3. Jim says:

    145F on internal temp. That is not food safe deary.

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Jim! When cooking, I try to make sure to follow the USDA guidelines, and went off of this here: http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/news/20110525/cooking-temperatures-for-pork#1 where it also recommends 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Do you see somewhere else that’s recommended it be higher? I always want to stay updated if things have changed.

  4. Keith Miller says:

    Where do I purchase smithfield babybacks and also the chipolte sauce I have looked in several store with no luck

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Keith! Oh no! I hate that you can’t find them. I found the ribs in the pork section of the meat isle at Walmart. The chipotle sauce is in the authentic foods isle at our Walmart. (By the tortilla shells, salsa, etc.) I hope that helps!

  5. tom scott says:
