Serves: 6-8


  • 1 rack baby back pork ribs


  • 1 cup organic ketchup
  • 3/4 cup organic maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup organic blackstrap molasses
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple
  • 2 tablespoons spiced rum
  • 1 tablespoon organic Dijon mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon Worchestire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  1. In a medium-sized pot over medium heat, stir together the ketchup, maple syrup and molasses. Keep at a low simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  2. While your pot is simmering, add the remaining ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Add the blender ingredients to the simmering pot and stir for 3-4 minutes more. Then turn off the heat.
  3. To prepare the ribs, line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil (enough to wrap the ribs).
  4. Take ¾ cup of the sauce and mix with an equal amount of water. Pour this evenly around the ribs, then lightly wrap the foil around them.
  5. Place the ribs in a 275 degree oven for 3 hours. This process steams the meat, making it tender while infusing it with flavor.
  6. After the ribs have finished cooking, remove from the oven. Using tongs, place on a large platter to carry to your grill.
  7. Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Use the remaining sauce to generously brush both sides of the ribs.
  8. Place the ribs on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes each side. Serve immediately.
