Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours 40 minutes
Total Time 3 hours


  • 2 (2 pound)  slabs baby back pork ribs
  • coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon  ground red chile pepper
  • 2 1/4  tablespoons  vegetable oil
  • 1/2  cup  minced onion
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2  cup   tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup  white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup  brown sugar
  • 2 1/2  tablespoons  honey
  • tablespoons  Worcestershire sauce
  • teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 t teaspoon  coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon  liquid smoke flavouring
  • 2 teaspoons  whiskey
  • 2 teaspoons   garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon  paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon  onion powder
  • tablespoon   dark molasses
  • 1/2 tablespoon   ground red chile pepper


  • Preheat oven to 300 degree F (150 degrees C).
  • Cut each full rack of ribs in half, so that you have 4 half racks. Sprinkle salt and pepper (more pepper than salt), and 1 tablespoon chile pepper over meat. Wrap each half rack in aluminum foil. Bake for 2 1/2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in oil for 5 minutes. Stir in water, tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, honey, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with 2 teaspoons salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, liquid smoke, whiskey, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, dark molasses, and 1/2 tablespoon ground chile pepper. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer for 1 1/4 hours, uncovered, or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat, and set sauce aside.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.
  • Remove the ribs from the oven, and let stand 10 minutes. Remove the racks from the foil, and place on the grill. Grill the ribs for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Brush sauce on the ribs while they're grilling, just before you serve them (adding it too early will burn it).
