    • 2 slabs baby back ribs, cut in half (about 5 lbs)
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
    • 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
    • 3 tablespoons dry rub seasonings (Emeril's Rib Rub, or your favorite BBQ spice rub)
    • sesame seeds, optional for garnish
    • green onion, sliced for garnish

    Asian Plum Sauce


    1. 1
      Rinse the ribs in cold water and pat dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt and pepper, then set aside.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, combine orange juice with the spice rub to form a paste; rub the paste on both sides of the ribs.
    3. 3
      Wrap the ribs in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight; remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling.
    4. 4
      Set up your grill for indirect cooking, about 250 to 300 degrees F.
    5. 5
      Place ribs, meat side up, opposite the heat source of your grill and cook for 2 hours; turn the ribs and grill, covered until the ribs are tender and cooked through, about 1 more hour.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, to prepare the plum sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine all the ingredients except the green onions.
    7. 7
      Bring to a boil, over high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar; reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the sauce begins to thicken and is reduced by half, 25 minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove from heat, add the green onion and let cool slightly; puree in a food processor.
    9. 9
      Brush the ribs, on both sides, with the Asian plum sauce; return to indirect grilling for 15 minutes.
    10. 10
      Remove from heat and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired; let rest 10 minutes before carving.
    11. 11
      Cut between each bone and arrange ribs on a serving platter; scatter green onion garnish and serve additional plum sauce on the side.
    12. 12
      Plum sauce can be made up to 5 days in advance if tightly covered and kept in the refrigerator.
