Hoot ’n Holler Baby Back Ribs

Times

Prep Time: 45 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 racks baby back pork ribs, (about 1 1/2-pounds per rack)
  • 1 12-oz jar prepared mesquite-flavored marinade
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 medium onion, peeled
  • 1 cup prepared barbecue sauce, (mild or spicy)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Cooking Directions

In a large stockpot, place both racks of ribs; add enough water to cover ribs. Add marinade, bay leaves and onion. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat. (This will create foam on top.) Reduce to medium-low heat; simmer 45 minutes or until ribs are just tender. Remove ribs from cooking liquid; drain on rimmed baking sheet. Heat grill to medium heat (about 350 degrees F.). Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, stir together the barbecue sauce and brown sugar. Brush over both sides of ribs. Place ribs on grill, bone side down, close lid. Grill for 7 minutes, turn and grill 7 minutes more. Serves 6 to 8.
