Tip: Another recipe with the exact-same name "Fennel-Pepper Back Ribs" ranks higher.
This simple Scandinavian-inspired rub enhances the succulent flavor of pork back ribs, and eschews the addition of a sauce.
In blender container or spice grinder, blend together well the pepper, fennel, sage and salt. Rub about 2 tablespoons rub, or to taste, over all surfaces of ribs. Store any remaining rub in tightly covered jar.
Prepare banked fire in covered kettle-style grill. Grill ribs over indirect heat, turning a couple of times, for about 2 hours, until meat is very tender.
