  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chile powder

  • Whisk ketchup with vinegar, molasses, dry mustard, chile powder, cumin, oregano, bourbon or whiskey (optional), and pepper.
  • Simmer 20-30 mintutes, stirring often.
  • Add salt and tobasco to taste.
  • Brush on meat the last 5 minutes of grill time.
  • Set up the grill for indirect heat, medium temperature. Grill the meat, rib side down, until the bones protrude slightly from the meat, about 2 hours (may take more or less time, depending on rib thickness and grill temperature).
  • Brush with barbeque sauce during the last 15-20 minutes of grilling so that the sauce carmelizes onto the ribs.
  • Serve extra sauce on the side.
  • Sauce can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. May also be frozen.
