For 3-4 slabs of ribs

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon tarragon leaves
  • 1 teaspoon oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves

Montgomery Inn Sauce

  • 1 (24 ounce) bottle ketchup
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (1/2 cup may be enough)
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup tarragon vinegar


  1. Ribs: Mix spices together and put into shaker.
  2. Squeeze the juice of one lemon on both sides of the ribs. Salt evenly and shake spice mix on both sides of the ribs.
  3. Brown both sides of the ribs on a hot grill.
  4. Place ribs in baking pan, add 1/8 to 1/4 inch water from the bottom.
  5. Cover with foil and bake at 325 to 350 degrees F for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Fifteen minutes before done, remove foil, drain water and place back in oven.
  6. Montgomery Inn Sauce: This recipe came with no instructions. This is what I have worked out.
  7. Blend the onion with the other ingredients in a blender, then warm the sauce.
  8. For ribs or chicken, bake as usual, and then add the sauce for 10 minutes as it burns easily.
