Best Pork Ribs

Pork Ribs 1-2 slabs 
1 tbsp Garlic Salt 
1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar 
4-6 Corn on the cob 
2 cups mixed greens 
tomatoes
cucumber 
red onion

Ribs-
Get a big pot and put the pork ribs whole into pot then add the apple cider vinegar, garlic salt and then fill the rest of pot with water to cover ribs. Bring to a boil and let boil on low for 45 minutes. This makes the ribs so juicy and fall off the bone. You will be having your family beg for more. 

For the corn soak corn for an hour in water with the husks on. 

Turn on your grill and then place the ribs on and add a layer of sweet baby rays. Then let start to carmalise then flip and add sauce to other side. Repeat this process until you have a nice thick layer of gooey sauce. 

Add the corn to the grill and grill for 10-15 minutes. 

Make your salad while the corn is cooking make sure to rotate the corn a few times. 

Then enjoy!!
