  • 4 lbs pork back ribs (cut into serving-sized pieces)
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cummin
  • barbeque sauce

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp vinegar

Rub ribs with garlic and place in shallow roasting pan. Cover and bake at 350° F for 2 hours. Cool slightly. Combine the seasoning over the ribs. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

In a sauce-pan sauté onion in butter until tender. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; set aside ¾ cup. Brush ribs with some of the remaining sauce.

Preheat grill to medium heat. Place the smoking chips in your Smokerin™ smoker box. Place the smoker box directly on the cooking surface above the fire, or place it on top of the gas grill diffusers below the cooking surface and above the burner. Grill over medium heat for 12 minutes, turning and basting.
