Original recipe yields 5 servings

Directions

  1. In pint-jar with tight-fitting lid, combine sugar, paprika, seasoned salt, chili powder, black pepper, celery salt, onion powder, garlic powder, ground sage and dry mustard. Place lid on jar and shake jar to combine thoroughly. Set spice rub aside. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
  2. In small saucepan over low heat, stir together barbecue sauce and honey. Heat through, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Set barbecue glaze aside, keep warm or at room temperature before using. (If storing for more than 2 hours, cover and refrigerate. Reheat gently before using).
  3. Pat ribs dry with paper towels and season generously with spice rub, using about 4-6 tablespoons for each slab of ribs. Grill over indirect heat in a covered grill or smoker for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Turn ribs once during cooking, about halfway through. Ribs are done when the meat is very tender (insert a paring knife between ribs to determine); they will pull apart fairly easily. About 20 minutes before ribs are done, baste heavily with barbecue glaze. If you like your ribs extra sticky, baste again 10 minutes before removing from the grill.

I ended up braising the ribs in my oven at 300 degrees for about 2 hours and then put them on the BBQ with the sauce for about 15 minutes. Delicious! If you don't want to worry about them on the BBQ, the oven is the way to go.

Very good recipe. I made the ribs in the oven at 300 degrees for three hours then put the bbq sauce on them for an hour. Finished them off by removing the foil just to expose the ribs under a low broiler for a few mins. I will make this again for sure.

These ribs were fantastic. My family and I agreed that these were probably the best ribs we had ever had. I cooked the ribs uncovered in the oven @ 325 for 2 hours and finished them off on the bbq with the sauce for about 10-15 min. Excellent!! This will be our rib recipe of choice from now on - thanks for sharing this one.
