Sticky BBQ Baby Back Ribs

I enjoy barbecues, specially baby back ribs BBQ that’s sweet, salty and spicy.  This is the recipe I alway go back to.  Sticky sweet and savory with a little kick.  This has always been a family favorite.  A regular finger food during New Year’s Eve together with pork bbq on stick and roasted marshmallows.  Adapted from The Doubleday Cookbook Vol.1 (1975).

BBQ Baby Back Ribs

5 lbs spareribs, cut into serving-size pieces
2 cups water

1/2 cup kettle broth
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons dry sherry
2 small slices fresh gingerroot, peeled and crushed
1 clove garlic peeled and crushed
Dash of hot pepper sauce


  • Place ribs in a very large heavy skillet or roaster.
  • Add water, cover and simmer for 1 hour; drain, reserving 1/2 cup kettle broth.
  • Spread ribs out on a large tray.
  • Mix kettle broth with remaining sauce ingredients and pour over ribs.
  • Cover and refrigerate 8 hours, turning 1-2 times
  • When ready to cook, preheat broiler or prepare charcoal grill.
  • Broil or grill ribs 4″-5″ from heat, basting continually with sauce and turning often until all sauce are gone and ribs are crisply brown. About 15 minutes.
