Ingredients:  
4 lbs. of country-style pork spareribs,
1 cup brown sugar,
1/4 cup each of ketchup,
soy sauce,
worcestershire sauce,
rum
1/2 cup chili sauce (it's like cocktail sauce, but without the horseradish zip)
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp black pepper

Directions:
I love ribs, but I hate that there's usually so little meat on them. A half hour of gnawing with precious little payoff. This variation uses country-style pork ribs that are almost all meat, very little bone. Also, this dandy of a recipe DOES NOT REQUIRE A BBQ GRILL!

Start with 4 lbs. of country-style pork spareribs. Double-wrap them in aluminum foil and bake them on a cookie sheet for 90 minutes.

While they're cooking, prepare the marinade:

1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup each of ketchup, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, rum

1/2 cup chili sauce (it's like cocktail sauce, but without the horseradish zip)

2 cloves crushed garlic

1 tsp dry mustard

1 tsp black pepper

These are the official measurements of the recipe, but I usually double the garlic. A dash of liquid smoke is sometimes warranted, if you like.

Once the ribs are out of the oven, let them cool off before you unwrap them. The drippings left oven in the cookie sheet can be reserved or thrown away, but there is no need for them for the rest of this recipe.

Let the ribs soak in the marinade for 1 hour MINIMUM, but they're better if you put them with the marinade in an airtight container and refrigerate overnight.

If you have a BBQ grill, cook the ribs after marinating on medium heat for 20 minutes, basting frequently. If you don't have a grill or prefer to use your oven, broil on the top rack for the same amount of time.
