Adam's Sticky Pork Ribs

Very easy recipe to make amazing ribs that everyone loves. Hint: You will be baking the ribs before you grill, this can be done up to 2 days in advance of grilling.


  • 2 racks pork back ribs, about 4 pounds
  • 1 1/2 cups bbq sauce, plain
  • 1/4 cup pancake syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons white vinegar


  1. Mix sauce, syrup and brown sugar, set aside
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  3. Place ribs in their racks (I just mean do not cut them) in a large baking/casserole dish
  4. Pour vinegar into dish with ribs and cover tightly with aluminum foil
  5. Bake about 90 minutes or until very tender
  6. Remove from oven and carefully lift off tin foil - watch out for steam
  7. The ribs are now fully cooked and just need to be 'sauced' finished'.
  8. At this point you can bbq then any time within 2 days!
  9. Heat bbq to medium and place ribs meat side down without sauce - but you can baste the back with the sauce
  10. Cook until they start to develop grill marks, and turn over - now baste the top
  11. You could stop here after they grill a bit on this side, or you could baste them a bit more and then give them a couple more minutes meat side down - that's what I do
  12. Give 'em one extra baste them after they've been removed, but just before you serve them
