For the Paste:
2 Tbsp chopped garlic
1 Tbsp ground cumin
2 Tbsp chili poweder
2 Tbsp cayenne
3 Tbsp dark brown sugar
3 Tbsp Kosher salt
1 Tbsp ground black pepper
1/4 Cup lime juice
8 Dashes tobasco
2 Tbsp olive oil

For the BBQ Sauce:
1 Cup diced white onion
1 Tbsp chopped garlic
1/2 Cup molasses
1 Cup Catsup
1/4 Cup orange juice
1 Tsp ground cumin
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
1 tbsp olive oil

Spareribs or baby back ribs.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

In the food processor combine the paste ingredients and blend until smooth. Dry the ribs with a paper towel and on the backside score with a knife in a checker board pattern. Then rub generously with the paste. Place on a baking sheet, scored side down, and slow roast for 3-4 hours until th meat is very tender. It should pull easily from the bone. At this point they may be cooled and grilled another time or go right to the grill.

While the ribs are roasting, heat a pot with the 1 t olive oil and sweat the onion and garlic. When soft add the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minuts. Add the sauce to a blender in small batches and carefully blend smooth. Taste for salt.

Grill the ribs with the rack set as high as possilbe allowing them to get a light crust. Brush with the sauce during the last minute or two.
