  • 2 lbs baby back ribs
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tbs five spice powder
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
This is a wonderful marinade of honey, five spice powder, soy, and hoisin sauce. The technique is to brush the ribs with the marinade several times and let rest for 30-45 minutes, then to cook using indirect heat.

  • Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix well.
  • Using a food grade brush, paint the ribs all over and place then on a wire rack on a baking sheet, which will allow excess marinade to drip away. Hold at room temperature for 20 minutes, then brush more marinade on and allow to rest for another 20 minutes.
  • Cook ribs over charcoal, using indirect low heat.
  • Baste ribs occasionally with some of the marinade.
  • Turn the ribs several times in about 15 minute intervals.
  • Ribs should be done in 1 and 1/2 hours.
  • Brush the ribs with some of the marinade before serving.
