Maple-Mustard Country-Style Spareribs
Be sure to glaze toward the end of the cooking time—otherwise the glaze will burn before the ribs are done.
6 large country spareribs (about 4 1/2 pounds)
3/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup coarse grained mustard
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce
2 teaspoons soy sauce
Salt and coarse ground black pepper
- Mix maple syrup, mustard, brown sugar, hot sauce, and soy sauce. Set glaze aside.
- Create indirect fire with foil drip pan half-filled with water. Lay ribs on rack over drip pan and brush with glaze. Cover and cook for 1 hour 15 minutes, turning and basting every 15 minutes.
- Move ribs to hot side of grill. Brush with glaze, cover, and grill for 5 minutes. Repeat, turning and basting, until ribs are tender and brown (about 20 minutes). Season with salt and pepper and serve.
Makes 6 servings.
