Greek style ribs

1 or 2 Racks of Baby Back Ribs or spare ribs

2 to 3 garlic cloves or more to taste

dried oregano to taste

Juice of 1 to 2 lemons

Lemon zest (Optional)

salt and pepper


Mince garlic and press with back of knife to turn into a paste. (or use a microplane). I prefer just chopping the garlic fine. Rub ribs with garlic, rub on oregano, salt and pepper and lemon zest if using. Squeeze juice of whole lemon over ribs a few hours before cooking.

Note: These can be marinated earlier in the day or overnight, but do not add the lemon juice until a few hours before grilling or the lemon will change the texture of the meat.

For my taste you need the lemon zest.

I used 3 garlic cloves for 1 rack & would have liked more, but I am a garlic lover. I marinated for about 4 hrs. & added juice of 1 lemon an hr. before putting on the grill.

Smoke or grill these your favorite method. I usually do them one hr. on smoke mode 180 deg. then go to 225 deg. until done, usually about 4 ½ hrs.
