Mouth-watering, fall-off-the-bone, slow smoked beef brisket or slow cooked ribs are a Texan favorite and this super easy recipe is great if you are at all wary of the barbecue or grill. This recipe works well with both pork and beef ribs.


  • ‍2 pounds baby back or short ribs
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons organic ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum
  • ¼ cup chili sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cut the baby back ribs into the serving size you prefer and then wrap in two layers of tin foil.
  3. Bake in a baking or roasting dish/pan for 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Once cooked, unwrap your ribs and drain the drippings. (Tip: You can freeze the drippings to use later as a broth or in soups!)
  5. Place the ribs in a large roasting pan.
  6. In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar, ketchup, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, rum, chili sauce, garlic, mustard, and pepper. This is your marinade!
  7. Coat the ribs with sauce and marinate at room temperature for 1 hour, or if you have time you can even refrigerate them and let ’em get all yummy overnight.
  8. Preheat your grill (medium heat).
  9. Brush grill grate with oil.
  10. Place the ribs on the grill and cook for 30 minutes, basting with the marinade. Serve.
