Chef Craig Jones, the creator of Jones'en Espresso BBQ Sauce, was kind enough to share the following recipe and allow me to post it here. This recipe produces tender, fall-off-the-bones ribs slathered in a robust, rich sauce that's not too sweet and that complements, rather than overpowers, the meaty flavor of the ribs. Your friends and family are guaranteed to ask for seconds (and thirds) and to beg you to make these ribs as often as possible!
2 pounds pork baby back ribs (separated into 4 portions)
1 (20 ounce) bottle of Jones’en Espresso Barbecue Sauce
Ingredients for rib rub:
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Hungarian sweet paprika
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
Tear off 4 pieces of aluminum foil big enough to enclose each portion of ribs. Spray each piece of foil with vegetable cooking spray. Coat every inch of ribs with the rub mixture, then Bush the ribs with Jones’en Espresso Barbecue Sauce and place each portion in its own piece of foil. Wrap tightly and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, or overnight.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
Bake ribs wrapped tightly in the foil at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Open foil to expose the meat and add more sauce, bake an additional 15 minutes at 400 degrees F.
