2 tspchili powder
1/2 tspcayenne pepper
2tspdry ground mustard
For the BBQ Sauce
1(14.5 oz) cantomato sauce
1/3cupapple cider vinegar
1 tbspreserved spice rub
To Make the Ribs
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or a baking mat, set aside.
In a small bowl combine the seasonings. Set aside 1 tbsp. of the rub (it will be used in the BBQ sauce).
Place the ribs on the prepared baking sheet. Pat the rub onto the ribs on both sides, then place them meat side down. Place a large piece of foil over top and seal the edges to make a packet.
Place in the oven and bake for 2½ - 3 hours or until the meat is tender but not completely falling off the bone (some ribs may require up to 3½ hours). Remove ½ c. of the juices that have accumulated and set aside.
To Make the BBQ Sauce
In a small saucepan set over medium heat, combine the tomato sauce, honey, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, pineapple juice, garlic, reserved 1 tbsp. of the spice rub, and reserved juices. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Heat a grill or place a grill pan over medium-high heat. Cover the ribs with the BBQ sauce and place them on the grill. Cook them until they are charred on both sides, about 5-6 minutes per side. Serve with additional BBQ sauce.
-You can definitely use beef ribs if that's all you can find!
