- Combine all the spices until well-mixed. Rub about two thirds all over the ribs. Cover with clingfilm and leave for
4-8 hours in the refrigerator. Keep the remaining rub in an airtight container until needed.
- To make the sauce, gently cook the onion in the vegetable oil until soft and brown – it will take about 20 mins. Puree
the onions with all other ingredients in a food processor or blender until very smooth. It should be quite sour, but you
can adjust flavour to taste with brown sugar and/or hot sauce.
- When ready to cook, place the ribs on the barbecue over a gentle heat with the lid on for about 2 hours. Using a pastry
brush, apply the sauce every 30mins. Add more coals if the grill gets too cold. The ribs are done when they are starting
to pull away from the bone and quite black on the outside.
- To cook in the oven, preheat to 140ºC, place the ribs on a baking tray and cover with foil. Cook for 2 hours, basting
with sauce every 30mins. Remove the foil for last 30mins of cooking.
- Serve with the leftover rub. Fantastic with coleslaw, potato salad, or cornbread.
