Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Instructions

  1. Directions:
  2. Prepare a gas or charcoal grill fire for indirect cooking over low (300 degree) heat.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the cornmeal, peppercorns, salt, maple syrup, oil,and bourbon. Coat the meat side of the ribs with the mixture and wrap each rack in foil.
  4. Arrange the ribs meat side up in a single layer over the cool zone of the grill. Close the lid and cook the ribs until fork-tender, 3 to 3-1/2 hours. Let cool to room temperature and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight. (If refrigerating overnight, let the ribs sit at room temperature for 1 hour before continuing.)
  5. To serve, remove the ribs from the foil; scrape off the crust and reserve. Reheat the ribs meat side down over a medium-low (350 degree) direct gas or charcoal grill fire until nicely browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Flip the ribs and pat or sprinkle with about half of the reserved crust (discard the rest). Cook until hot, 3 to 4 minutes more. Cut between the ribs and serve sprinkled with any of the cornmeal crust that fell off while carving.
  6. I adapted this recipe somewhat to my own liking.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

Cooking Tips

  • Maple syrup comes in three grades, either A-C or 1-3 depending on where you live. To learn which types are suitable for which uses in the kitchen, check out our lesson on maple syrup in the academy.

  • Kosher salt is a type of coarse-grained salt popular among chefs because it is easy to pick up with the fingertips and sticks well when coating meat. The name "kosher salt" comes from the word "koshering", the process of making food suitable for consumption according to Jewish law. You can easily substitute table salt or sea salt in recipes where the salt is being dissolved, but if you're using it to coat meat, you might wish you had the kosher salt.
