Baby Back Ribs with Spicy Barbecue Sauce Recipe



Baby Back Ribs:

4 1/2 lb pork loin back ribs

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper


Spicy Barbecue Sauce:

1 cup ketchup

1/2 cup water

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup white vinegar

1 tablespoon celery seed

1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce

1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke, if desired




1. Heat oven to 325°F. Cut ribs into serving pieces; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place ribs in 15x10x1-inch pan. Cover with foil; bake about 2 hours 30 minutes or until tender.


2. Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, mix sauce ingredients. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.


3. Heat gas or charcoal grill for indirect cooking as directed by manufacturer.


4. Place pork on unheated side of two-burner gas grill or over drip pan on charcoal grill. (If using one-burner gas grill, cook over low heat.) Cover grill; cook 15 to 20 minutes, brushing with sauce every 5 minutes, until pork is no longer pink and meat begins to pull away from bones. Discard any remaining sauce.
