This rib recipe definitely packs a punch. The combination of honey, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, and mustard powder heightens the typical BBQ sauce-style ribs. This style of ribs isn't necessary better than your best-bbq-ever ribs, yet it stands on its own for being quite unique with the spice and the fall-off-the-bone tenderness. We have made this at least 3-4 times by now and I don't search for any other rib recipe.
On a side note, you can bake the ribs like this recipe and just serve them with your favorite BBQ sauce. But if you want to pack a lunch with some spicy and delicious marinade, this is it!
1/4 cup minced canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup mustard powder
2 racks pork spare ribs
Coarse salt and ground black pepper
Vegetable oil, for grates
Lemon wedges, for serving
