Barbecue Rum Ribs


  • 4 pounds spare ribs (or country style)
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic (use garlic press)
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash of pepper


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Get the ribs cooking before you start the marinade. Wrap individually the rack of ribs in a double thickness of aluminum foil and bake them in the oven for 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Mix all of the remaining ingredients in a bowl. After 1 1/2 hours, remove the ribs from the oven, unwrap them and drain the drippings. If possible place the ribs in a shallow baking dish, pour your marinade over them and let them sit at room temperature for an hour.
  4. You can either bake the ribs in preheated 375 degree F oven for 30 minutes and baste with the marinade, or grill them for 30 minutes on low/medium heat while turning and basting.
