Recipe by threeovens
Another variation for pork ribs. This recipe is for 2 racks (5lbs) and includes a dry rub and an optional mopping sauce. Serve it with your favorite BBQ sauce. This recipe works equally well in the oven with the ribs on a roasting rack. Raichlen also says to marinate in the dry rub 4 hours to overnight, but I don't find this necessary.

These ribs are terrific! The sauce is not thick like a bbq sauce, so the ribs are not gooey with it after cooking, but it adds a nice flavor and moistness to the rub, which is perfect. Cooked these in the smoker for about 3 hours and ended up with a delicious meal - thanks for sharing the recipe!

Directions See How It's Made
- Set up your grill for indirect heating at 350 degrees F; place a drip pan in the middle of your coals.
- Remove the silver skin from the ribs with your hands.
- Combine all the rub ingredients and rub 2/3 of it on both sides of ribs.
- Place ribs on the grill and close the cover.
- Combine all the ingredients for the mopping sauce.
- After 30 minutes of cooking, mop the ribs with the sauce; repeat mopping every 20 minutes thereafter.
- Continue to cook the ribs until they are tender and the meat has shrunk a bit from the bones, about 1 1/2 hours.
- Remove ribs from the grill, once they are done, and place on a cutting board; mop ribs one last time and sprinkle with remaining dry rub.
- Cut into serving size pieces as desired.
