What you will Need:
A Grill (of course) I use Charcoal always
2 pounds or 2 large slabs baby back pork ribs
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
fresh ground black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon ground red chile pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 1/4 tablespoons evoo or canola oil
1 1/4 teaspoons liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 cup minced onion
2 teaspoons of your favorite whiskey (optional)
1 1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 cup tomato paste
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
2 1/2 tablespoons real honey
1/2 tablespoon ground red chile pepper
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
Cut each full rack of ribs in half - that way you have 4 half racks. Sprinkle on some freshly ground salt and pepper, and 1 tablespoon of Chile pepper on top of the meat. Then, wrap each half rack in aluminum foil and Bake in the oven for 2 1/2 hours.
About 45 Minutes before they are ready to pull out of the oven, start your charcoal grill, if using a gas grill, you can wait until 15-20 minutes before.
While that's slowly cooking, heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in the oil for 5 minutes. Next, stir in water, tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, honey, and worcestershire sauce. Season it with 2 teaspoons salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, liquid smoke, whiskey, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, dark molasses, and 1/2 tablespoon ground chile pepper. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer for 1 1/4 hours, uncovered, or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat, and set sauce aside.
Remove the ribs from the oven, and let 'em stand for 10 minutes. Remove the racks from the foil, and place on the grill. Grill the ribs for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until a nice char starts to form, then brush sauce on the ribs while they're grilling, to give the sauce that extra charred taste just before you serve them.
