Sweet & Smoky Ribs with Grilled Sweet Potatoes
Add layers of flavor to baby back ribs with Grill Mates® Sweet & Smoky Rub and barbecue sauce. Precook sweet potatoes in the microwave so that they need just a few minutes of grilling to brown.
- 4 pounds pork baby back ribs
- 6 tbsp sweet & smoky rub
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 4 medium sweet potatoes
- Preheat grill to medium-low heat. Rub ribs with Sweet & Smoky Rub. Wrap ribs with 2 to 3 layers of heavy duty aluminum foil, sealing ends tightly. Grill ribs over indirect heat 2 to 3 hours or until tender.
- Meanwhile, microwave sweet potatoes on HIGH 7 minutes or until almost tender, turning sweet potatoes over halfway through cooking. Let stand 2 minutes. Cut sweet potatoes into wedges.
- Remove foil from ribs. Transfer to lit side of grill over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes per side or until browned, brushing with some of the barbecue sauce. Grill sweet potatoes 2 minutes per side or until lightly browned, brushing with remaining barbecue sauce.
