For many, a BBQ is a summertime essential activity, with friends and family manning the grill and sharing platters of homemade goodies.

Whether you’re a BBQ veteran looking to try something new or a budding chef ready to branch out into the BBQ world, there are constantly new recipes on the internet that you can dive into. Below are 15 internet BBQ recipes ranging from classic ribs to Asian-influenced marinades.

1. Grilled Individual Ribs – aka Party Ribs

Created by grillmaster and online chef sensation Malcom Reed, this recipe takes classic baby back ribs and turns them into a party platter. Aptly nicknamed Party Ribs, what makes these ribs unique is that they are cut into individual bones before they’re seasoned and glazed to perfection before serving.

2. Simple BBQ Ribs

For a ribs recipe that’s as simple as it gets, look no further. This recipe requires no grill! All you need to do is boil the ribs with seasoning, then cover them in BBQ sauce of your choosing, either homemade or store-bought, before baking them. 

3. Baked BBQ Sausages

Although ribs often take center stage, sausages are another popular BBQ addition. This recipe works for any type of sausage and only requires a handful of various spices and BBQ sauce, making it a good recipe for beginners. Simply chop the sausages into slices, coat in the spice and sauce mixture, and bake.

4. Chinese BBQ Char Siu Pork Ribs

The use of Asian sauces in BBQ glazes is actually quite popular, so it’s no surprise that the flavor of Char Siu Pork pairs well with American BBQ. This recipe is somewhat more advanced with a heftier ingredient list, but the result is an Asian influenced dish that’s overflowing with deliciousness.

5. Pot Pulled Pork

Created by the BBQ Pit Boys of internet fame, these pulled pork sandwiches only take 3 hours to make, which is considerably shorter than many other pulled pork recipes. Most of the prep work will go into seasoning and browning the pork ribs. After that, you just need to place the pot over indirect heat and let the recipe work its magic.

6. Easy Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs

This recipe is yet another alternative for cooking ribs without a grill. Although the recipe does state that it takes over 8 hours for these ribs to cook, the result is well worth the wait. It also calls for a homemade blend of spices, making it a good opportunity for budding chefs to mix and match various spices to perfection.

7. MeMe’s BBQ Cups
