Amy, creator of Food Wonk, explains how this recipe for Grilled Baby Back Ribs allows you to prepare ribs on the grill without the risk of drying them out.

The key, she says, is to first "bake the ribs at a low temperature in the oven and then finish them on the grill with a bit of smoke." She suggests baking the ribs with beer as a sure-fire way to keep them tender and add another layer of flavor. For a little pazazz, try Amy's flavorful rubs/marinades: Jamaican Jerk Rub, Coffee and Ancho Chile Rub, and Asian Style Marinade.

Thanks for sharing these with us, Amy!

Cue the opening ceremony music, get a good grip on the torch, and get ready to make your family proud. In our first ever Grill-lympics, we’re challenging you to share your grilling with us. All you need to do to participate is grill something scrumptious (burgers, steak, chicken, etc. according to the week’s theme) and upload your photo and a description to our Community Gallery, or post a link to an entry on your blog on our Twitter or Facebook page. Each Monday, starting July 25, Fine Cooking editors will pick three finalists from the previous week's entries. A post will be published featuring the finalists along with a poll where the community (that's you!) can vote for a favorite entry (one vote per IP address). The poll will close at noon the following day, and the post will be updated to reflect the winner.
