"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

2 racks baby back pork ribs (about 2 lbs each)
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
2 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon salt

In small bowl stir together all seasonings, set aside.
Using a sharp knife, cut and pull the membrane from the back of each rack of ribs. Using your fingers rub the spice mixture over ribs to coat evenly. Place each rack of ribs in a large resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate overnight.
If ribs are too big for the bag you can use a baking sheet and cover tightly with plastic wrap.

Prepare grill for medium direct heat. Remove the ribs from plastic bag and wrap each separately in a double layer of heavy duty aluminum foil.

Grill, covered, for 25 minutes. Turn packets over and grill 25 more minutes. Test for donenessópoke with a fork between the bones, the meat should be very tender. If they are not done return to grill for additional 10-15 minutes or until fork tender.

Carefully remove packets from grill. Unwrap and place them directly on grill-cook for 2-3 more minutes per side until crisp.

Transfer to cutting boardórest for 10 minutes before cutting into individual ribs
