6 to 8 servings

Recipe from

Oxmoor House


8 pounds pork spareribs
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
1 (14-ounce) bottle catsup
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Dash of red pepper
Dash of garlic salt


Cut ribs into serving-size pieces. Place spareribs with water to cover in a large stock pot. Cover and bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Drain and cool spareribs slightly.

Combine 2 teaspoons sugar, 2 teaspoons salt, and 2 teaspoons pepper; rub over entire surface of spareribs.

Combine remaining ingredients in a small mixing bowl; mix until well blended.

Place ribs on grill 5 inches from medium-low coals. Cook 1 hour or until desired degree of doneness, turning every 20 minutes and basting liberally with barbecue sauce.

Transfer spareribs to a serving platter, and serve with remaining barbecue sauce.
