Getting Grill Ready

My neighbor swears that if you boil your ribs before grilling them, they become tender and soft. The only problem is, all the good flavor from the ribs is going to be left behind in that pot of water. I met another woman who sprinkled her ribs with lemon Kool Aid; her ribs were excellent! So, if you’re looking for some ideas for great pork, baby-back ribs, give this a try.
