One recipe for pork spareribs calls for a sauce made from brown sugar, soy sauce, rum and dry mustard, among other ingredients, and has a 5-star rating on AllRecipes.com as of 2015. Another 5-star recipe for baby back ribs calls for just two ingredients: pork ribs and bottled barbecue sauce.
To make barbecue pork spare ribs, begin by cutting 4 pounds of ribs into serving-sized portions. Wrap them in foil, and bake for 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, prepare the sauce by mixing together 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of ketchup, 1/4 cup of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 cup of chile sauce, 2 minced cloves of garlic, 2 teaspoons of dried mustard and a dash of black pepper. Coat the cooked ribs in this sauce, and let them sit at room temperature for one hour.
Preheat the grill to medium heat. Make sure the grate is 4 inches above the heat source. Place the ribs on the grill, and cook for 30 minutes, basting the ribs with the barbecue sauce periodically.
Alternatively, you can make ribs by liberally brushing 2 pounds of ribs with bottled barbecue sauce. Wrap them in foil, and refrigerate them for 8 hours. Place the wrapped ribs in an oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and bake for 2 1/2 hours. Remove the foil, and add additional barbecue sauce before serving.
