    • 4 lbs beef short ribs, bone in


    Barbecue Sauce


    1. 1
      Score the meaty side of the ribs with a knife in a diamond pattern.
    2. 2
      Combine rub ingredients in a bowl. Rub into all sides of ribs. Refrigerate 2-4 hours.
    3. 3
      Prepare a charcoal grill with an indirect grill setup - put hot coals on outside of grill, leaving a cool center zone, with a drip pan in the center. Place ribs over the drip pan. Place a handful of hardwood chips on each pile of coals. Position the lid with the vent holes centered over the meat, and mostly closed to get about 250°F.
    4. 4
      In a medium saucepan, combine hoisin sauce, rice wine, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, ketchup, garlic, ginger and scallion. Heat over medium flame; simmer 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      About 15 minutes before the meat is finished, brush sauce onto meat. Meat is done when bones are exposed by about 1/4", about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

      This was very good! Different from your average BBQ sauce. I used Pork Country Ribs and let the spices sit on the meat for about an hour. Then I mixed the BBQ sauce and put it on the meat and baked in oven for 3 hours. The ribs came out very tender & the flavor was really nice. I had this with mashed potatoes but feel we should have had some nice chinese noodle instead. Maybe next time. Thanks for posting!!
