stephenlinn's picture
  Rack pork ribs 2 , each trimmed and cut in half
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  Paprika 1 Tablespoon
  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
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon

For Ribs:
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.

For Sauce:
Combine all ingredients in saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 20 – 30 minutes, uncovered, until thickened.
