Ingredients

  •     2 ½ pound rack pork loin back ribs (or 1 kilo)
  •     ¼ cup Lillie's Q Gold
  •     1 cup of your favourite BBQ rub (or use recipe below)
  •     ½ cup Lillie's Q Smoky or your favourite Lillie's Q sauce

Rub

  • 90g dark brown sugar
  • 25g smoked paprika
  • 20g salt
  • 15g black pepper
  • 15g chilli powder
  • 15g garlic powder
  • 10g onion powder
  • 2g cayenne pepper

Method

1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. With a pastry brush, spread Lillie's Q Gold all over both sides of the ribs.

Generously sprinkle your favourite BBQ rub all over both sides of the ribs.

2. Place ribs in the middle of a double thickness of heavy foil cut 6 inches longer than the ribs.

Wrap ribs in the foil. Bake for 1½ to 2 hours or until tender (the two middle bones of the rack should start to pull apart easily).

3. Remove ribs to a tray (discard liquid in foil packet). Spread Lillie's Q Smoky or your favourite BBQ or Lillie's Q sauce all over both sides of the ribs.

Grill on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 15 minutes, brushing with additional sauce every 5 minutes, turning once.

Adjust heat as necessary to prevent burning.
