You know how much they like barbecue ribs? They’ll like ’em even more when they’re brushed with the sweet and savory marmalade mixture in this BBQ Marmalade Ribs recipe!
3 hours, 10 minutes
4 lbs Pork Ribs
2 tsp coarse salt
2 tsp paprika
1 T garlic powder
½ tsp red pepper flakes
¼ tsp ground black pepper
BBQ Marmalade Sauce:
3 C your favorite BBQ sauce (we love Sweet Baby Ray)
2 T honey
¼ C. orange marmalade
For the BBQ Marmalade Sauce:
combine all sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and stir well.
Preheat to 300 degrees F. Coat ribs with rub mixture. Wrap ribs in aluminum foil and place on baking sheet. Bake for 2 ½ hours. Remove from oven, coat ribs generously with BBQ Marmalade. At this point, I like to put the ribs in the fridge (can make ahead up to 24 hours) then when it’s Tailgate time, put them on a hot grill for 2-3 minutes each side to heat them up and sear the sauce.
Smoker: If you have a smoker, here’s our favorite way to cook these ribs:
Set smoker to 225 F.
Coat ribs with rub mixture, place in smoker for 3 hours. Remove ribs, coat with a thin coating of BBQ Marmalade and wrap in aluminum foil. Continue smoking for 2 hours. Remove ribs, coat generously with sauce and smoke for 1 additional hour.
