Dry Rub

Barbecue Sauce


Dry Rub

  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Set aside.
  2. On a work surface, use paper towels to peel away the white membrane (silverskin) on the back of the ribs. Place the ribs on a baking sheet and rub both sides generously with the spice rub. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  3. With the rack in the middle position of the oven, preheat the oven to 325°F (170°C).
  4. Wrap the ribs, two racks at a time, in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Transfer to a baking sheet. Bake for about 2 hours, or until the meat is tender.

Barbecue sauce

  1. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, cook the spices in the butter for 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes or until the sauce becomes syrupy. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to medium. Oil the grate.
  3. Remove the ribs from the foil and grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, brushing with half of the barbecue sauce. Serve with the remaining sauce.

    It's all in the sauce. And it is excellent. Made this sauce on a few occasions and always delicious. How I cook these ribs, I marinate them in the spices a few hours before hand or overnight. Cook in the oven at 400 for around 30 minutes then bring it down to 200 for about 5.5 - 6 hours. Finish them off on the BBQ. Fall off the bone.

    I LOVE this recipe! I made this for a BBQ we were attending and everyone thought it was wonderful. My daughter who is a very picky eater loved this recipe also. Making it for dinner again tonight.

    Everybody loved them - some preferred without sauce, some with. Left overnight in plastic bag with dry rub. Great flavour. Will make this my regular rib recipe.
