2 racks of ribs (about 5 1/4 pounds)
1 cup jack daniel’s whisky
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/2 tsp dry mustard
crushed red pepper flakes to taste
salt and pepper to taste
How to prepare
Prepare the grill.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the ribs and the red pepper flakes and boil for 30 minutes. This partially cooks the ribs before you grill them.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine all of the other ingredients and cook over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Remove the ribs from the water and place them on the grill. Continually baste the ribs with the sauce and cook them for 15 – 20 minutes, or until they are cooked through.
*Note: you can place the ribs in a covered pan and bake them at 350f until cooked through.
