Get a taste of the islands by seasoning the baby back ribs with spicy jerk seasoning, marinating in rum, and basting with a tangy brown sugar and rum sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Rinse and pat ribs dry. If desired, remove thin membranes from backs of ribs, using a paper towel for a better grip. (This will make ribs more tender.) Rub ribs evenly with jerk seasoning.

Step 2

Pour rum in a shallow dish or zip-top plastic freezer bag; add ribs, turning to coat. Cover or seal, and chill 1 hour, turning occasionally.

Step 3

Light 1 side of grill, heating to medium heat (325° to 350°). Place a drip pan beneath unlit side. Remove ribs from marinade, let drain quickly, and place on grate above drip pan. Grill (with lid closed), turning occasionally, 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until ribs are browned and tender and meat has shrunk back from bones.

Step 4

Brush ribs with 1/2 cup Sticky Rum BBQ Sauce, and grill 15 more minutes. Serve with additional sauce.

Fabulous!! we substituted worchestershire for soy sauce and ommitted ginger and liquid smoke, as we cooked on charcoal and had the smoky flavor
