Duo Bbq Ribs

  • Yield: About 6 servings


  • One 3-pound slab country-style pork ribs
  • One 3 1/2-pound slab pork spareribs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups Steenís 100% Pure Cane Syrup or other cane syrup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup minced yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons peeled and grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Put the ribs in a very large soup pot or kettle. Add the salt and enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil and let boil for 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain.
  • Whisk the remaining ingredients together in a medium-size mixing bowl, blending well. Put the ribs in a large, deep braising pan or plastic container and pour the marinade over them. Cover and refrigerate for 8 to 12 hours, turning the ribs in the marinade about every 4 hours.
  • Prepare the pit or grill. You should have a glowing red fire with light ash, and the temperature of the pit or grill should be between 225° and 275°F.
  • Put the ribs on the pit away from the fire. Cook, basting with the marinade and turning the ribs every 15 minutes, for about 2 hours. You may have to feed the fire every 30 minutes or so.
  • Remove the ribs from the pit and let cool for several minutes before slicing to serve.
