Serves 4

Grilled Spareribs with Maple-Chipotle Glaze Ingredients

For the ribs

  • 1 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbs. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 racks of pork spareribs (about 9 lbs.)

For the glaze

  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 chipotle chile, chopped, plus 3 Tbs. adobo sauce (from a can of chipotles en adobo)
  • 2 Tbs. ketchup
  • 1-1/2 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbs. cider vinegar

Grilled Spareribs with Maple-Chipotle Glaze Directions

  1. Prepare grill: light the front burner to medium-low and leave the back burner(s) off. Clean and oil the grill grates.
  2. Mix the sugar and spices in a small bowl with four tsp. of salt and one tsp. of pepper, and pat over both sides of the ribs. Let sit at room temperature while the grill heats.
  3. Set the ribs meaty side up over the cool zone of the fire and cook covered (with the vents open on a charcoal grill) until the ribs brown and become tender (a paring knife should easily slice into the meat, and the ribs should sag if you hold the center up with a pair of tongs), about 1-1/2 hours.
  4. Stir together the maple syrup, chipotle chile adobo sauce, ketchup, mustard, and vinegar in a medium bowl until combined.
  5. Brush the ribs with half the glaze and cook with the grill covered, brushing the meat every couple minutes until the glaze browns and becomes sticky on the ribs, about 15 minutes. Remove the ribs from the grill, brush with the remaining glaze, and let cool for a couple of minutes; cut in half (meaty side down so they're easier to slice), and serve.
