You will need:
- 2 racks of baby back ribs
- 1 tsp granulated garlic
- 1 tsp smoked sweet paprika
- 1 tsp granulated onion
- 1/4 cup brown or coconut palm sugar
- 1 tsp salt (I used smoked salt)
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp curry spice mix
- 1/2 tsp cayenne powder or crushed red pepper flakes in a spice mill
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 your favourite barbecue sauce
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp hot pepper jelly
- 2 tbsp orange juice
Step 1: wash and dry the ribs to remove any bits of bone or residue that may be on them. Remove the skin on the back of the ribs. I normally take a knife to start it and then remove by pulling it off. If you are having a hard time getting a grip use a piece of paper towel to hold it.
Step 2: mix all the dry ingredients together to form the rub.
Step 3: spread the dry rub evenly on both sides of all ribs.
Step 4: I cut the ribs in half and wrapped them in parchment paper and foil. I use the parchment because I don't like my food to touch the foil directly.
Step 5: bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour wrapped up. I then open up the foil and continue to cook them for 1/2 -1 hour until they start to brown. Remove from foil and let cool before grilling or cover and leave in fridge until ready to grill.
Step 6: in a small bowl prepare sauce for basting. I make just enough sauce for this recipe.
Step 7: grill on low heat basting with sauce until sticky and browned.
