SERVINGS: 4

Ingredients

• ½ c. dark brown sugar

• 4 tsp. garlic salt

• 4 tsp. pure ancho chile powder

• 2 tsp. salt

• 1 tsp. ground black pepper

• ½ tsp. celery salt

• ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper

• ¼ tsp. cinnamon

• ¼ tsp. freshly ground white pepper

• ½ c. apple cider

• ¼ c. apple jelly

• ¼ c. honey

• 2 rack baby back ribs

• 1 c. prepared barbecue sauce

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. In a bowl, mix 1/4 cup of the sugar with the garlic salt, chile powder, salt, black pepper, celery salt, cayenne, cinnamon, and white pepper. Transfer 1 tablespoon of the spice mix to a medium bowl and whisk in the cider, apple jelly, honey, and the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar.

  2. Pull the membrane off the underside of each rib rack using a towel to grasp the corner. On a rimmed baking sheet, rub the ribs with the remaining spice mix; bake, meaty side up, for 2 1/2 hours. Pour the cider mixture over the ribs and turn to coat. Tightly cover with foil and bake for 1 hour.

  3. Light a grill. Uncover the ribs and brush with the barbecue sauce; grill over moderate heat, turning and brushing, until glazed, 15 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes, then cut between the bones and serve.
