 Barbecued Baby Back Ribs
This recipe came about by accident when I was making ribs for company and discovered I didn't have enough sauce. I combined the ingredients on hand and came up with this special sauce.
6 ServingsPrep: 10 min. Cook: 1 hour 35 min.


  • 4 pounds pork baby back ribs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke, divided, optional
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey-Dijon barbecue sauce
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey


  • Cut ribs into serving size pieces; place in a Dutch oven and cover
  • with water. Add salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon liquid smoke if desired;
  • bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1-1/4 hours or
  • until ribs are just tender. Do not overcook.
  • Meanwhile, combine barbecue sauces, ketchup, honey and remaining
  • liquid smoke if desired. Drain ribs and transfer to grill. Grill,
  • uncovered, over medium heat, basting both sides several times with
  • sauce, for 8-10 minutes or until ribs are tender and well-glazed.
  • Yield: 6 servings.
