Kansas City Ribs

Ingredients
4
pounds pork loin back ribs
1
tablespoon packed brown sugar
1
tablespoon paprika
1
teaspoon garlic powder
1
teaspoon celery salt
1/2
teaspoon dry mustard
1/2
teaspoon black pepper
1/4
teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2
cup medium finely chopped onion
2
cloves garlic, minced
1
tablespoon butter
1
cup ketchup
1/4
cup molasses
1/4
cup cider vinegar
1/4
cup water
2
tablespoons brown sugar
1
tablespoon chili powder
1
tablespoon yellow mustard
1
tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2
teaspoon salt
2
cups hickory chips*

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Trim fat from ribs. Place ribs in a shallow roasting pan. For rub, in a small bowl stir together brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, celery salt, dry mustard, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle rub evenly over both sides of ribs; rub in with your fingers. Cover pan with foil.
  2. Bake ribs for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until very tender. Carefully drain off fat in roasting pan.
  3. For sauce, in a medium saucepan cook onion and garlic in hot butter over medium heat about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in ketchup, molasses, vinegar, the water, brown sugar, chili powder, yellow mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until desired consistency.
  4. For a charcoal grill, sprinkle the wood chips over medium-hot coals. Grill ribs on the rack of a covered grill directly over the coals for 10 to 15 minutes or until ribs are brown, turning once halfway through grilling and brushing occasionally with sauce. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Add wood chips according to manufacturer's directions. Place ribs on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as directed.) Serve ribs with remaining sauce.

*Tip:

For the most smoke production, soak wood chips in enough water to cover for at least 1 hour before grilling. Drain wood chips before using.
