Barbecued Riblets

Weber Portable Gas Grill

These will be the perfect finger food for your next barbecue or warm weather party. Ribs are rubbed with a hot spice mixture, and left in the refrigerator for one or two days. The ribs will take three hours to cook before serving.

Spiced Ribs

    4 racks (10 pounds) baby-back pork ribs
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    1 tablespoon mustard powder
    1 tablespoon garlic salt
    2 teaspoons ground cayenne

Barbecue Sauce

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 cup chopped yellow onion
    2 garlic cloves, crushed in a garlic press
    ¾ cup dark brown sugar
    1 ½ cups water
    2 cups ketchup
    2 tablespoons Dijon-style prepared mustard
    ⅓ cup Worcestershire sauce
    1 dried red chile (chile de árbol), optional
    1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste

1.  In a small bowl, mix the chili powder, mustard, garlic salt
     and cayenne. Set out a large chopping board and an extra
     large bowl. Cut the ribs into riblets and place them in the
     bowl. Sprinkle evenly with spices. Rub the spices over the
     ribs and then refrigerate in two resealable plastic bags
     overnight or up to two days.

2.  Arrange the riblets in two 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass baking
     dishes. Cover with foil. Bake in a preheated 325
° oven for 2
      hours. Start step three after baking the ribs for one hour.

3.  During the second hour of baking, heat the oil in a 5-quart
     sauté pan and fry the onions until translucent. Add the garlic,
     brown sugar, water, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and chile. 
     Cover with a splatter guard; simmer on
     low heat for 1 hour. Remove from heat. Drain fat from ribs.

4.  Stir the tomato paste into the barbecue sauce. Brush over the
     ribs; bake an additional hour or bake for 45 minutes and grill
     over hot coals 15 minutes outdoors.

5.  Serve on a large platter.

     Variation: Use the same recipe for 2 racks of beef ribs. You
      will need to cut off all the visible fat after baking for 2 hours.
      Cover with sauce and continue to bake with the barbecue sauce
      until the sauce is sticky.

      Hint: Sprinkle with sesame seeds for visual appeal.

      Makes 1 party plate
