Preparation

  1. Whisk together all the rub ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Spread the rub evenly over the pork ribs and place on a wire rack set over a baking sheet with meat side up. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

  4. Add the remaining sauce ingredients and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  5. Turn the heat down to medium-low and cook at an active simmer until the mixture is reduced to about 2 cups (470 ml), about 30-45 minutes.
  6. Once reduced, cool slightly then transfer mixture to a blender. Puree until smooth.
  7. Preheat oven to 275˚F (140˚C).
  8. Uncover the ribs. Spread 1 cup (290g) of the BBQ sauce over each rack of ribs.
