Southern Living


2 slabs baby back ribs (about 4 pounds)
1 cup Sweet Sauce


Place ribs in a large, shallow pan. Rub Dry Spices all over ribs. Cover and chill 3 hours.

Prepare a hot fire by piling charcoal on 1 side of grill, leaving other side empty. (For gas grills, light only 1 side.) Arrange ribs over unlit side.

Grill, covered with grill lid, 2 hours, basting sparingly with Basting Sauce (about every 30 minutes) and turning ribs occasionally. Brush ribs with Sweet Sauce the last 30 minutes.
