Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 6 servings
3 pounds baby back pork ribs
3/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place ribs in a large baking pan. Cover, and bake for 3 hrs, or until meat is tender.
In a small saucepan, stir together the maple syrup, brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and mustard powder. Bring to a low boil, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Cool slightly, then pour over ribs, and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Prepare grill for cooking with indirect heat. Remove ribs from marinade. Transfer marinade to a small saucepan, and boil for several minutes.
Lightly oil grate. Cook for about 20 minutes, basting with the cooked marinade frequently, until nicely glazed.
