These ribs get their great flavor from a splash of lime and our Sweet-Hot 'Cue Sauce, featuring sweet chili sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, and ground ginger. Like these baby backs, most ribs need to marinate overnight in the fridge, making them the perfect make-ahead dish for grilling get-togethers.
Who needs prepackaged rubs and bottled sauces when you can make your own? Our Chipotle Rub's bold taste infuses the ribs with Southwestern flair, while the Smoky Chipotle 'Cue Sauce echoes the rub's flavors with a few more peppers.
These ribs are smoked for six hours over hickory wood chips. To keep tender, spray with apple juice (instead of water) and cook for 2 hours wrapped in foil. Finish with a barbecue sauce, apple juice, and honey glaze.
Barbecue sauce and an herb-rub combine to give spareribs complex flavor. The four-ingredient rub made from Creole seasoning, garlic powder, pepper, and Greek seasoning punches up the flavor of meat fast, no marinade required.
Try this classic recipe for smoked baby back ribs (also called baby loin back ribs). Buying ribs is easy if you know what to look for. Single slab packages allow you to see all sides of the ribs. You want as much meat and as little fat as possible.
