    John McCain's Ribs

    Serves 4

    2 to 2 1/2 pounds baby-back pork ribs

    Dry rub:
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    2 teaspoons salt
    2 teaspoons ground black pepper
    3 lemons

    Turn the grill down to low temperature.

    Mix together spices and cover both sides of the ribs with the mixture.

    Grill ribs, bone side down, for 90 percent of the time, about 45 minutes per pound. Squeeze the lemon onto the ribs frequently, for taste and to keep them moist.
