DIRECTIONS

  • Make the sauce--in a saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil.
  • Add in garlic, chile powder, and cumin; cook for 30 seconds, stirring occasionally.
  • Add in the remaining sauce ingredients, whisk them together, and allow the sauce to simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • The ribs--remove the thin membrane from the back of each rack of ribs; allow the ribs to stand at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before grilling.
  • The rub--in a small bowl, mix the rub ingredients; season the ribs all over with the rub, pressing the spices into the meat.
  • Drain the mesquite chips and toss them onto the burning coals or into the smoking box of a gas grill; grill the ribs over Indirect Low heat (grill temperature should be about 300°) until the meat is very tender and has shrunk back from the ends of the bones, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • About 15 minutes before the ribs are done, start brushing occasionally with the sauce on both sides.
  • Transfer the ribs to a baking sheet and tightly cover with foil; let rest for 30 minutes before serving.
  • Serve warm.
