Chili Glazed Pork Ribs

Recipe printed from Jenn's Food Journey, adapted from the Food Network

1 rack pork ribs
1/2 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 Tablespoons ancho chili powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
For the glaze (sauce) -
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 Tablespoon beer


In a small bowl, mix together the salt, brown sugar, garlic powder, thyme, ancho, pepper, and cayenne.  Remove 1 Tablespoon of mixture and set aside.  Rub remaining mixture over both sides of the ribs and wrap in plastic wrap.  Place in refrigerator for 1 hour.

In a bowl, mix together the barbecue sauce, beer, and reserved rub mixture.  Set aside.

Preheat oven to 225 degrees F.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack over it.  Spray with non-stick spray.  Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes.  Carefully remove from oven and brush with sauce mixture.  Cover with foil and return to oven.  Turn oven down to 200 degrees F and continue to bake for another 1.5 hours.  Remove from oven, remove the foil, brush with more sauce and return to oven for 30 more minutes or until the ribs can be picked up with a tong and "bend" at the ends.  Remove from oven and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes.  Cut and serve with any remaining sauce.  Enjoy!
