  • 1 tablespoon favorite chicken rub see note

Equipment

  • grill

Directions

  • Trim chicken spare ribs of fat and skin pieces. Make sure there are no bone fragments.
  • Apply rub, by laying chicken spare ribs on a baking tray and applying the rub evenly over. Alternatively, toss chicken and rub in a bowl stirring well for a consistent covering.
  • Prepare your grill for indirect hot cooking.
  • Lift the trivet a little higher by using empty tuna cans between foil to allow more airflow around the meat. Cook for 30 to 40 minutes, turning once until chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
