Grilled Ribs with Maple Barbecue Sauce
|Rack pork ribs||2 , each trimmed and cut in half|
|Brown sugar||1 Tablespoon|
|Black pepper||1 Teaspoon|
|Chili powder||1 Teaspoon|
|Dried oregano||1 Teaspoon|
|White pepper||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Maple syrup||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Ketchup||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Onion||1 Cup (16 tbs), finely chopped|
|Brown sugar||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Lemon juice||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Water||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Garlic||2 Tablespoon, chopped|
Combine all rub ingredients and rub the mixture on all sides of the ribs. Let rest in refrigerator for 4 hours up to overnight.
Preheat grill to hot.
Place ribs on grill and cook for 5 minutes on each side. This will sear the meat to seal-in the juices and put grill marks on the meat. Remove ribs from grill and place in standing rib rack and set aside.
Let grill cool and then preheat grill for indirect cooking.
Place ribs in rib rack on “cold” side of the grill. Cover and cook for 3 - 4 hours or until meat is close to falling off of the bones. Brush barbecue sauce (recipe follows) on the meat and cook for 10 minutes more. Remove ribs from rack and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
Combine all ingredients in saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 20 – 30 minutes, uncovered, until thickened.
