Servings 8 servings


  • 1 Smithfield Pork Back Ribs
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 cup sour orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oregano


  • Clean well and remove the membrane located at the back of the ribs. This membrane is easy to remove and it is important to do so that the ribs are even more tender and it is easy to separate them when cooked.
  • Season the ribs on both sides so that the seasonings are evenly absorbed. And let it marinate inside the refrigerator for an hour.
  • Prepare the grill and charcoal. And when the charcoal turns white, grill the ribs for 45 minutes. Or until golden brown and the bones of the ribs are exposed at least 1/4.
  • Let ribs rest for few minutes after taking them out of the grill. And then cut to serve.
  • Pair the ribs with white rice, beans and homemade taquera sauce.


If you prefer a classic taste, use the KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce, Tabasco Sauce and even Budweiser beer to flavor your pork back ribs.
