HONEY PECAN BABY BACK RIBS

HONEY PECAN BABY BACK RIBS

Ingredients

4 pounds baby back pork ribs, cut into 4-5 racks
2/3 cup honey, divided
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup toasted pecans, finely ground
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (18-ounce) bottle barbecue sauce
Chopped toasted pecans for garnish

Preparation

Lay each rack of ribs on a large piece of foil. In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup honey, pepper, paprika, salt and garlic powder. Rub both sides of each rack with 1 tablespoon of the mixture. Wrap foil around ribs and fold to seal. Place foil packets seam-side up on grill over medium heat (300 degrees). Cover and grill for 1 1/2 hours. Remove ribs from grill; spray grill rack with non-stick cooking spray and fire up the grill to medium high. In a small bowl, combine ground pecans and flour. Remove ribs from foil and press pecan mixture onto the meaty side of each rack. Combine barbecue sauce and remaining honey; drizzle over pecan crust to cover. Grill ribs over medium heat 2-3 minutes, starting with the bare side and brushing on sauce as desired. Turn and baste the ribs until they are caramelized. Sprinkle with additional pecans and remaining honey barbecue sauce. Makes 6 servings.
