Barbecue Rum Ribs are three words that are as good separately as they are together. Check it out!
- 4 pounds of spare ribs
- 1/4 cup of ketchup
- 1 teaspoon of dry mustard
- 1/4 cup of dark rum
- 2 cloves of crushed garlic (use a garlic press or just smash ’em with the side of a big knife on a cutting board)
- 1 cup of brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup of soy sauce
- 1/2 cup of chili sauce
- 1/4 cup of worcestershire sauce
- and a dash of pepper
Get the ribs cooking before you start making the marinade. Wrap them in a double thickness of aluminum foil and bake them in the oven for 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees.
Now make the marinade by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl. Relax and have yourself a drink from the bottle of rum… I hope it was quality stuff.
After 1 1/2 hours remove the ribs from the oven, unwrap them and drain the drippings. If possible place the ribs in a shallow baking dish , pour your marinade over them and let them sit at room temperature for an hour. Now, depending on what kind of mood your in you can either bake the ribs at 350 degrees for 30 minutes while basting with the marinade, or grill them for 30 minutes on low to medium heat while turning and basting. Either way, they taste frikin’ awsome!
