  • 4 teaspoons apple pie spice blend
  • Apple-Butter Barbecue Sauce
  • 2 cups apple butter
  • ⅓ cup tomato paste
  • ⅓ cup water
  • ¼ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 5 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon coarse-ground black pepper
  1. Mix together brown sugar, salt and apple spice. Rub ribs with spice on both sides of rib. Wrap ribs in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator to 2 to 6 hours.
  2. Combine sauce ingredients and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to baste over ribs.
  3. Preheat oven to 275°F. Pour 2 cups water in the bottom of a 13 x 10½ inch broiler pan. Unwrap ribs; place, bone sides down, on broiler rack over the water. Tightly cover with heavy foil. Bake for 2 to 2¼ hours or until tender.
  4. Transfer ribs to cutting board and carefully discard water in broiler pan. Line broiling pan rack with the foil. Return ribs to foil-lined rack in broiler pan; generously brush with sauce.
  5. Preheat oven broiler. Broil ribs 4 inches from heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until heated through, turning over and brushing with sauce halfway through broiling. Heat remaining sauce in microwave until warm. Transfer ribs to cutting board. Cut into 6 to 8 portions; brush with heated sauce and serve with any remaining sauce.
