Chuck Wagon Baby Back Ribs

Makes: 4 to 6 servings
Prep 20 mins Grill 1 hr 30 mins
Chuck Wagon Baby Back Ribs
  •  Chuck Wagon Rub (see recipe below)
  • 4 - 5  pounds  pork loin back ribs
  • 1  cup  dry red wine
  • 1  cup  pineapple juice
  • 1/2  cup  honey
  • 1/2  cup  cider vinegar
  • 1/2  cup  soy sauce
  • 1/4  cup  yellow mustard
  • 2  tablespoons  bourbon
  • 1  teaspoon  bottled hot pepper sauce
  •  Bottled barbecue sauce (optional)

1. Sprinkle Chuck Wagon Rub evenly over both sides of ribs; rub in with your fingers. If desired, cut ribs into 2- to 3-rib portions.

2. For sauce, in a large bowl stir together wine, pineapple juice, honey, cider vinegar, soy sauce, mustard, bourbon, and hot pepper sauce; set aside.

3. Place rib portions, bone sides down, in a large roasting pan.* Prepare grill for indirect grilling, except omit drip pan. Test for medium heat above center of grill. Place roasting pan on grill rack in center of grill (not over heat). Pour sauce over ribs. Cover the grill (do not cover pan with foil) and grill for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours or until ribs are tender, spooning sauce over ribs every 20 to 25 minutes.

4. Remove roasting pan from grill. Remove ribs from sauce. Discard sauce. If desired, rearrange coals for direct grilling. Place ribs on the grill rack directly over the coals for 10 minutes, turning once. If desired, serve with bottled barbecue sauce. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
