Directions

  1. Grind salt and fennel seed together in a blender or coffee grinder. Stir fennel-salt mixture, sugar, paprika, chili powder, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder together in a bowl.
  2. Cut each pork slab into 3 pieces, about 5 ribs each. Pat ribs dry with a paper towel and rub spice mixture over each piece. Place ribs on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.
  3. Allow ribs to sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat grill between 270 degrees F (132 degrees C) and 300 degrees F (149 degrees C) for indirect grilling and lightly oil the grate.
  5. Grill ribs on the preheated grill with the cover down, turning once, until no longer pink in the center, about 1 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  6. Combine barbeque sauce, honey, and cider vinegar in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce is thickened and smooth, about 10 minutes. Brush sauce onto ribs.
  7. Cook ribs for 15 minutes; flip, baste the other side, and cook until ribs are glazed and tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes more. Let ribs stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  8. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

You will love these ribs—they're the best I ever made! I prepped them the night before so the flavors could develop, and I could have a relaxing day!

These ribs were not at all impressive, I didn't feel the dry rub mixed with the BBQ sauce complimented eachother in any way.
