Chipotle Honey Sauce Barbecue Ribs Recipe


Chipotle Baby Back Ribs are perfect any time with subtle amounts of sweet heat Chipotle, and the smooth richness of honey.

Ingredients Chipotle Honey Sauce for BBQ Ribs Recipe

  • 1 Tablespoon Jake's Chipotle Dry Rub
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 Rack of Baby Back Ribs

Combine all ingredients in a small pot or bowl then heat on medium for 3 minutes stirring thoroughly. Remove from heat and let rest until almost cool.

Take rack of ribs and remove any membrane on the underside of the ribs. Wash rack thoroughly and cut in half, then pat dry. Take large resealable plastic bag and place the two halves of the rib rack into the bag. Pour 3/4 of the Chipotle Honey Sauce mixture into the bag coating the ribs. Seal the bag removing any excess air. Turn the bag over coating the entire surface of both rib segments with the mixture. After the ribs are coated place the bag into the refrigerator and let rest for 2 hours.

Once the ribs have rested prepare your grill. Remove the rack of ribs from the bag and grill as normal. Start by grilling the ribs underside down first, then following by turning the ribs over. Check the temperature and turn every 15 minutes. Base the top side of the ribs with the reserved Chipotle Honey Sauce mixture. Once the ribs reach the desired temperature remove from heat and brush on one additional layer of Chipotle Honey Sauce on all surfaces. When ribs are cooked serve with the reserved Honey sauce mixture.

General Cooking Instructions Chipotle Honey Sauce for BBQ Ribs Recipe

With the ribs marinated and the grill ready place on the indirect side of the grill. Let cook for 15 minutes with the grill lid closed. After 15 minutes open the lid and turn the ribs over then let cook for 18 minutes. After 18 minutes check the temperature. We added 3 minutes to the cooking process to account for the heat loss during the opening and closing of the grill. After each subsequent turning check the temperature using an instant read thermometer.

As the ribs near temperature begin consulting the cooking scale to ensure that you bring the ribs out at the right temperature.

When the ribs reach 5-10 of the desired temperature remove from heat and place on a covered pan. Let the ribs rest 3 to 5 minutes then serve.
