- 3 lbs pork back ribs
- 1 (8 ounce) jar honey
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 1 medium onion, grated or finely chopped
- 12 ounces barbecue sauce of your choice. I use Sonny's
- 1 Tsp white sugar
Preheat oven to 325°. Remove membrane from the back of the ribs. Optional, but I sometimes cut the ribs apart prior to cooking; This makes for easier serving. Place all ingredients together in large roasting pan.
Mix together listed ingredients making a paste rub. Coat ribs with this paste. Spread ribs out evenly on bottom of pan and cover lightly with foil.Bake at 325° degrees for approximately 3 hours. Turning occasionally and basting with the goodness that is in the pan.While you don't have to, I prefer to finish these ribs on the grill. I fire up my charcoal about 30 minutes before I take them out of the oven. I place them on the hot part of the grill for direct heat for a minute or so then put them on the cool side / indirect heat for ~5 minutes then flip for another 5 minutes. Remove them from the grill and cover with foil and let them rest for 10 to 15 minutes before serving. These ribs are also great finished on the grill for a few minutes on each side.
