Grilled Baby Back Ribs or Spareribs with a "To Die For" Barbecue Sauce
The barbecue sauce can be made ahead, leaving just the oven and grilling to be done when serving.

3-1/2 cups of your favorite ketchup OR 1 (36-oz.) bottle
1 cup of your favorite brand of honey
1 (8-oz.) can crushed pineapple with the juice
1/4 cup favorite brand of apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. favorite brand of soy sauce
2-1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. dried crushed red pepper

Combine the above nine (9) listed ingredients in large deep saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until very thick, stirring occasionally, about 1/2 hour. Cool sauce. (Can be made 1 week ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

1 slab of baby back pork ribs or spareribs, about 2 to 3 pounds.

Cut between bones into individual ribs. Cut the rack of ribs in half, if necessary. Cover with the cooled marinade sauce and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Save extra sauce for basting during cooking.

Pour marinade from the pork ribs into a medium saucepan. Boil marinade for food safety about 10 minutes until thickened, adjust with water. Line a large roasting pan with aluminum foil. Arrange the Baby Back Ribs or Spareribs in a single layer in the prepared pan. Brush both sides of the pork ribs generously with the cooked marinade.

Bake the pork ribs in the preheated 350F oven for 35 to 40 minutes, basting occasionally. When cooked through, finish them off on the grill, over medium heat. Grill these ribs until golden brown and thickly glazed, occasionally turning and basting with more barbecue sauce, about 4 to 5 minutes per side.
