Sweet and Spicy Grilled Pork Back Ribs

Chris tells me each rib recipe I make, gets better - this one being the best so far.  He is so wonderful for my cooking ego, let me tell you :) In this instance, though, I have to agree with him.  These are definitely the best ribs I have made in a very long time.  The meat came off the bone perfectly and the flavors were spot on.  What more can you ask for in a good rib?

These are some of my all time favorite flavors blended together to make a deliciously different tasting rib.  If you try it, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Printable Recipe 
1 lbs pork back ribs
garlic salt
3 Tablespoon sweet chili sauce, divided
2 Tablespoon Sriracha, divided
1 Tablespoon mirin
1/4 cup beer
1 Tablespoon honey

Season both sides of the ribs with garlic salt and pepper.  Place in shallow dish or resealable plastic bag.  Mix together 1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce, 1 tablespoon Sriracha and mirin until well combined.   Pour over ribs and refrigerate for 2-4 hours.

Preheat grill to 300-315 degrees F.  Remove ribs from bag and place on large squares of aluminum foil.  Mix together the beer and honey and pour over the ribs.  Pull the opposite sides of the foil together and seal, forming a packet - leave a little room for steam.  Grill for 1 hour on indirect heat.

After an hour, carefully remove the packet from the grill.  Mix together the remaining 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce and 1 tablespoon Sriracha.  Place the ribs directly over the fire and grill for another 20-30 minutes, basting occasionally with the sauce mixture.  Remove from grill and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting into them.  Enjoy!

Those ribs are perfection! You need to go form a team and compete at Memphis in May - I'd join your team in an instant, even if my best use would be schmoozing with guests and judges while you worked your magic at the grill ... :)
