  • 1/3 cup kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup black pepper
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 2 racks pork spareribs about 3 lbs each
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tbsp brown mustard
  • 2 tbsp liquid smoke
  • salt and pepper



Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200. To prepare the rub, in a small bowl combine the salt, pepper, brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, cumin, coriander, cayenne and ginger. Use the rub to thoroughly coat the ribs.

Arrange the ribs on baking sheets and roast until the meat is tender and pulls easily from the bone, about 3 hours. Remove the ribs from the oven and set aside.

while the ribs cook, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, orange juice, mustard and liquid smoke. Set aside.

When the ribs are nearly done, preheat grill to low with the grates at the highest setting. Grill the ribs for 10 to 20 minutes per side, or until a light crust has formed. Brush the ribs with the sauce during the final minute of cooking.
