  • 4 lbs spare ribs cut into individual ribs

For the Rub

  • cup smoked paprika
  • cup sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 5 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt

For the Glaze

  • cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup honey
  • 5 tablespoons bourbon


  • Heat oven to 325F/165C.
  • In a small bowl, mix the spices for the rub.
  • Cover the ribs with the rub so they’re coated all over.
  • Place the ribs on a baking tray and cover the pan with foil and bake for 1 hour, until tender.
  • Meanwhile, to make the glaze, place the ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar, honey, and bourbon into a saucepan, stir well and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  • Simmer for 5 mins until thickened and sticky, then remove from the heat and set aside until needed
  • At this point, they can be dipped in the glaze and grilled on the BBQ for 10-15 minutes (brushing with the glaze again as needed)
  • If Baking:
  • When the ribs are done, remove from the oven and increase the heat to 400F/200C.
  • Using a pair of tongs, dip each rib in the glaze, then return to the rack.
  • Place the ribs back in the oven and cook for 10 mins.
  • Remove from oven, dip into the glaze again, then return to the oven for another 10-12 minutes until sticky.
  • Serve hot.
