Directions See How It's Made
- Score the frozen ribs several times on the back of the rack.
- Allow to thaw overnight.
- Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Place a wire rack in a large shallow pan large enough to hold the rack of ribs.
- Rub 1/8 cup of the Texas Roadhouse rib seasoning over each side of the ribs. Use additional seasoning if needed to cover each side of the ribs.
- Combine the water and liquid smoke in the large pan. Mix well.
- Place the ribs in the pan on top of the wire rack. Do not allow the ribs to touch the water-liquid smoke mixture. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil.
- Bake for about five hours. Cook until the ribs nearly fall off the bone.
- While the ribs are cooking, saute the onion in vegetable oil in a saucepan. When the onion is soft, add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for an hour over low heat, until thickened.
- Preheat a charcoal or gas grill.
- Grill covered for about four minutes on each side. Brush with BBQ sauce, then flip to allow the sauce to caramelize. Repeat with the other side. Serve.
