Makes 6 servings
¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1½ teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ to 1 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 pounds baby back pork ribs
¼ cup maple syrup
•Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix brown sugar, spices and salt in small bowl. Rub spice mixture onto both sides of ribs. Place in single layer in foil-lined roasting pan. Cover with foil. Bake 1 hour or until meat starts to pull away from bones.
•Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium heat. Brush baked ribs with maple syrup. Place on grill and cook 3 to 5 minutes per side or until browned.
•To cook ribs completely on grill: Preheat grill to low heat. Rub ribs with spice mixture as directed. Wrap ribs in 2 or 3 layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil, sealing ends tightly. Grill 1 hour or until tender. Remove ribs from foil. Brush with maple syrup. Grill ribs over medium heat 3-5 minutes per side or until browned.
