Orange Ginger BBQ Ribs

Grilled Orange-Ginger BBQ Ribs

  • Author: Michelle Lara


  • 2 racks of baby back style ribs
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 3/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 1 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice
  • the zest of an orange
  • 1 teaspoon orange marmalade
  • 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce


In a large dish whisk the ingredients together and submerge the ribs, make sure they’re fully coated. For best results marinade in the fridge overnight. The next day preheat  your grill to about 275 degrees. Place your ribs on a foil pan and cook on indirect heat for about 45 – 60 minutes.

In a sauce pan heat up the leftover marinade. You want to make sure it comes to a full boil {to avoid any cross contamination} – boil it for about 5 minutes then cook it on low for about another 15 – 20 minutes. You will use this sauce to baste the ribs halfway into the cooking time. I don’t recommend saving this sauce for later use, whatever you don’t use basting should be thrown away.

Remove the ribs from the pan and place them directly on the grill. Brush the ribs with the prepared sauce  and cook for about 10 minutes on medium low heat, until the BBQ sauce starts to caramelize.
