Makes 6 servings


2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
3/4 teaspoon each ground cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
6 pounds well-trimmed pork baby back ribs, cut into 3- to 4-rib portions
Barbecue Sauce


  1. For seasoning rub, combine all ingredients except ribs and Barbecue Sauce in small bowl; stir well. Spread over all surfaces of ribs; press with fingertips so mixture adheres to ribs. Cover; refrigerate overnight.
  2. Prepare grill for indirect cooking. While coals are heating, prepare Barbecue Sauce.
  3. Place seasoned ribs on grid directly over drip pan. Grill, covered, 1 hour, turning occasionally. Baste ribs generously with Barbecue Sauce; grill 30 minutes more or until ribs are tender and browned, turning occasionally.
  4. Bring remaining Barbecue Sauce to a boil over medium-high heat; boil 1 minute. Serve ribs with remaining sauce.
