  • 1
    To make sauce, in 1-quart saucepan, heat chili sauce, jelly, wine and mustard over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until jelly is melted.
  • 2
    Heat coals or gas grill for indirect heat. Cut ribs into serving pieces. Place ribs in 4-quart Dutch oven; add water. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 5 minutes; drain.
  • 3
    Cover and grill pork over medium coals 15 to 20 minutes, brushing with sauce every 3 minutes, until pork is no longer pink and meat begins to pull away from bones.
  • 4
    Heat any remaining sauce to boiling, stirring constantly; boil and stir 1 minute. Serve sauce with ribs.

Expert Tips

  • At last, your search is over! At the supermarket, these ribs may be labeled as back ribs or pork ribs.
  • Follow these steps when grilling over indirect heat. Before heating a charcoal grill, place a drip pan directly under the grilling area, and arrange coals around the edge of the firebox. Grill food over the drip pan. If you have a gas grill, place the food over the unheated side.
  • Want to stay inside? Bake these ribs instead. Omit the water and simmering step. Place ribs on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake uncovered at 325ºF for 1 1/2 hours; brush with sauce. Bake uncovered about 45 minutes longer, brushing frequently with sauce, until tender. Heat any remaining sauce as directed in step 4.
