serves 2


  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  •  2 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  •  1 1/2 tsp salt
  •  1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 kg ribs
  • 1 3/4 cups tomato sauce
  • 3 tbsp treacle
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp mustard powder

Preheat the bbq grill on low, for indirect heat.

Combine 1/2 tsp chilli powder, 2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp salt and pepper. Rub this mixture over both sides of the ribs. Place the ribs over the indirect-heat area of the grill and cook for 1 1/2 hours, turning every 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan combine the tomato sauce, treacle, Worcestershire, sugar, mustard and remaining chilli, garlic powder and salt. Over medium heat, bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until slightly thickened. About 5 minutes.

After 1 1/2 hours generously brush both sides of the ribs with the sauce mixture and continue cooking until tender, about 10 minutes.
