    Spice Rubbed Ribs with Tomato-Tequila Sauce


    2 t brown sugar
    2 t kosher salt
    2 t chile powder
    2 t paprika
    2 t dried oregano

    Mix rub ingredients with fingers.

    2 racks baby back ribs

    Allow ribs to stand at room temp for 20 30 minutes before grilling. Use about half of the rub to season the ribs on both sides. Grill, meat side down, over indirect low heat for 30 minutes.


    1 T evoo
    1 T minced garlic
    c tequila
    c tomato sauce
    c fresh orange juice
    2 T fresh lime juice
    2 t soy sauce

    In a small saucepan over medium-high heat warm the oil. Add the garlic and cook til it begins to brown, about 30 seconds, stirring occasionally. Add the tequila and stand back (it may flame). Add remaining sauce ingredients and the remaining rub. Stir the mixture, and then simmer til it reaches a thin sauce consistency 8 10 minutes.

    After ribs have cooked for 30 minutes, turn them over. Continue to grill for another 30 minutes and then start basting with the sauce every 15 minutes for the last 30 60 minutes of grilling. Grill til the meat is very tender and has shrunk back from the ends of the bones. Total cooking time will be 1 - 2 hours. Transfer the ribs to a baking sheet and tightly cover with aluminum foil. Let rest for 30 minutes before slicing into individual ribs. Serve warm. Makes 4 servings.
