Whiskey Baby Back Ribs

2 slabs baby back pork ribs

1/2 Tbsp. freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp. salt

1 Tbsp. chili powder

2 1/4 Tbsp. vegetable oil

1/2 cup minced onion

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup tomato paste

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 1/2 Tbsp. honey

2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1 1/4 tsp. liquid smoke

2 Tbsp. whiskey

2 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1 Tbsp. molasses

1/2 Tbsp. chili powder

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper, optional

Preheat oven to 300º.

Cut each full rack of ribs in half, so you have 4 half racks. Sprinkle salt, pepper and 1 Tbsp. chili powder over meat. Wrap each half rack in aluminum foil. Bake for 2 1/2 hours.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in oil for 5 minutes. Add water, tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, honey and Worcestershire sauce, salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, liquid smoke, whiskey, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, dark molasses, 1/2 tablespoon chili powder and cayenne. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer for 1 1/4 hours, uncovered, or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat, and set sauce aside.

Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Remove ribs from oven, and let stand 10 minutes. Remove the ribs from foil, and place on the grill. Grill the ribs for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, brushing with sauce on the ribs.
