  • 3 pounds of pork baby back ribs
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of paprika
  • 2 tablespoons of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon of dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper

  1. Start by removing the membrane from the back of the ribs to ensure tenderness.

  3. Rub the spice mixture generously all over the ribs, ensuring an even coating.
  4. Cover the ribs and refrigerate them for at least 2 hours, allowing the flavors to meld.
  5. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates to prevent sticking.
  6. Place the ribs on the grill and cook for about 20-30 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through and have a nice char.
  7. During the last 10 minutes of cooking, brush the ribs with BBQ sauce, allowing it to caramelize.
