Total Time: 1 hour 50 min

Servings: 10

Ingredients

Ribs

  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 3 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 pounds pork baby back ribs

Glaze

  • 1 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root

Instructions

  1. Mix the first 6 ingredients; rub over ribs. Refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes.

  2. Wrap rib racks in large pieces of heavy-duty foil; seal tightly. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat until tender, 1 to 1-1/2 hours.

  3. In a large saucepan, combine glaze ingredients; cook, uncovered, over medium heat until heated through and sugar is dissolved, 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Carefully remove ribs from foil. Place ribs over direct heat; brush with some of the glaze. Grill, covered, over medium heat until browned, 25-30 minutes, turning and brushing ribs occasionally with remaining glaze.
