Ingredients

2
tablespoons
brown sugar
1
tablespoon
paprika
1
teaspoon
dry mustard
1
teaspoon
dried oregano
kosher salt and black pepper
4
pounds
baby-back ribs (2 to 3 racks)
1/2
cup
Dijon mustard
1/2
cup
balsamic vinegar
1/4
cup
honey

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 275° F. Make the rub: In a small bowl, combine the sugar, paprika, dry mustard, oregano, 2 teaspoons salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Place the ribs on a large rimmed baking sheet. Rub the ribs with the spice mixture and tightly cover the baking sheet with foil. Bake until tender and the meat easily pulls away from the bone, 2 to 2 ½ hours.
  3. Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a small bowl, combine the Dijon mustard, vinegar, and honey. Transfer ½ cup of the sauce into a small bowl for serving.
  4. Heat grill to medium-high. Grill the ribs, basting with the remaining sauce and turning occasionally, until just beginning to char, 4 to 5 minutes. Serve with the reserved sauce.
