Hey Meat! (or is it Mr. Head? :) )... The best ribs I've ever cooked were done using a sweet-hot rub and glaze. Here's the rub...
Sweet And Spicy Rub
2 tablespoons butter; or margarine
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon sugar
In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in all ingredients EXCEPT sugar. Remove from heat and then add sugar. Cool and rub onto meat. Makes 1/4 cup, enough for 4 pounds of meat. Posted to the BBQ List by Carey Starzinger on Jul 19, 1996.
For the glaze, I used a Triple-Berry Chipotle sauce that I bought through my daughter's school through Market Day (www.marketday.com
). I also took the sauce, thinned it with some water and strained out the bits and pieces and used this for a spray while cooking.
Good luck and have fun!
