    Heat any remaining sauce to boiling, stirring constantly; boil and stir 1 minute. Serve sauce with ribs.

Expert Tips

  • Success : Follow these steps when grilling over indirect heat. Before heating a charcoal grill, place a drip pan directly under the grilling area, and arrange coals around the edge of the firebox. Grill food over the drip pan. If you have a gas grill, place the food over the unheated side.
  • Oven Directions: Want to stay inside? Bake these ribs instead. Omit the water and simmering step. Place ribs on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake uncovered at 325ºF for 1 1/2 hours; brush with sauce. Bake uncovered about 45 minutes longer, brushing frequently with sauce, until tender. Heat any remaining sauce as directed in step 4.
