Sweet-Hot Baby Back Ribs Recipe

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 03, 2018

The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury, MAOur directions for these juicy baby back ribs are for a two-burner gas grill. If you have a three-burner grill, light both sides, and leave the center portion off.


  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 3 slabs baby back pork ribs (about 5 1/2 lb.)
  • 2 limes, halved
  • Sweet-Hot 'Cue Sauce

Sweet-Hot 'Cue Sauce Ingredients

  • 2 (10-oz.) bottles sweet chili sauce
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes

How to Make Ribs

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 2

Rinse and pat ribs dry. If desired, remove thin membrane from back of ribs by slicing into it with a knife and then pulling it off. (This will make ribs more tender.)

Step 3

Rub ribs with cut sides of limes, squeezing as you rub. Massage ginger mixture into meat, covering all sides. Wrap ribs tightly with plastic wrap, and place in zip-top plastic freezer bags or a 13- x 9-inch baking dish; seal or cover, and chill 8 hours. Let ribs stand at room temperature 30 minutes before grilling. Remove plastic wrap.

Step 4

Light 1 side of grill, heating to medium-high heat (350° to 400°); leave other side unlit. Place rib slabs over unlit side, stacking 1 on top of the other.

Step 5

Grill, covered with grill lid, 40 minutes. Reposition rib slabs, moving bottom slab to the top, and grill 40 minutes. Reposition 1 more time, moving bottom slab to the top; grill 40 minutes.

Step 6

Lower grill temperature to medium heat (300° to 350°); unstack rib slabs, and place side by side over unlit side of grill. Cook ribs 30 more minutes, basting with half of Sweet-Hot 'Cue Sauce. Remove ribs from grill, and let stand 10 minutes. Cut ribs, slicing between bones. Serve ribs with remaining Sweet-Hot 'Cue Sauce.

How to Make Sauce

Step 1

Combine sweet chili sauce and remaining ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes.

Step 2

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Maggi Taste of Asia Sweet Chili Sauce.
