Servings: 5-6


2 medium onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup water
1 cup spicy ketchup
3 tablespoons white vinegar
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Liquid Smoke, optional
2 teaspoons ground mustard
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
5 to 6 pounds pork baby back ribs


In a large saucepan, saute onions and garlic in butter until tender. Stir in the brown sugar, water, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, Liquid Smoke if desired, mustard, chili powder, paprika and cayenne. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 10-12 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat.

In a small bowl, combine the salt, onion salt, garlic salt and pepper; sprinkle over ribs.

Grill ribs, covered, over indirect medium heat for 1-3/4 hours or until a meat thermometer reaches 160°.

Set aside 1 cup barbecue sauce for serving. Brush some of the remaining sauce over ribs; cook 20 minutes longer, turning ribs occasionally and basting with sauce. Serve with reserved sauce.

"The meat just falls off the bones of these slowly grilled spareribs," explains Desiree Whittaker of Rathdrum, Idaho. "My mom created the delicious sauce, tweaking it until it suited my dad's taste to a 'T'' I have to agree with him that these ribs are the best I've ever had."

Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Heinz Hot & Spicy Kick'rs ketchup.
