Best BBQ Ribs EVER *Lauren Perry*

(in the pic, you will see some grilled onions too- that is just leftover from cooking the ribs in the oven with the onions- my husband is an onion freak!)
BBQ sauce-

juice and some zest from 1 lime
juice and some zest from 1 lemon
juice and some zest from 1 orange
1/3 an onion chopped
1 tsp of bacon fat (optional)
1 tsp butter
3/4 cup of brown sugar
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp of liquid smoke
2 TBS of Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 cup of cider vinegar
2 TBS of Molasses
1/4 cup of bottled chili sauce
2 TBS honey Dijon mustard
Few shakes of garlic salt and pepper

** Melt butter and add chopped onion. Juice fruits, zest skins and add half of juiced fruit and rind to pot on med/low heat
** Add all other ingredients and set pot to simmer for atleast an hour. Let cool on stove and refridgerate for later (in pic you can see 1/2 rind from orange, lemon and lime- pull out before you refridgerate)


Baby Back Ribs
1 can of coke
1/2 an onion
garlic salt
1 cup of water
2 tbs of cooking oil

Put ribs in glass baking dish, cover in sliced onions, garlic salt, oil, pepper
Pour can of coke over ribs and add 1 cup of water
Bake @ 275 for a few hours (1 hr per pound of ribs- so 2 1/2 lbs of ribs cook for about 2 1/2 hours)

Put ribs on a platter and bbq WITHOUT the sauce on it. When the ribs have about 5 more minutes left on the bbq- add a thin layer of the bbq sauce and cook. Put back on platter- bring in and add more bbq sauce to the ribs :) That way you don't burn the flavor of the bbq sauce on the ribs.
