2 racks pork baby back pork ribs (about 1-1/2 lbs. per rack)
1 (12 oz.) jar prepared mesquite-flavored marinade
3 bay leaves
1 medium onion, peeled
1 c. prepared barbecue sauce (mild or spicy)
1/2 c. brown sugar


1. In a large stockpot, place both racks of ribs; add enough water to cover ribs. Add marinade, bay leaves and onion. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat. (This will create foam on top.) Reduce to medium-low heat; simmer 45 min. or until ribs are just tender.

2. Remove ribs from cooking liquid; drain on rimmed baking sheet. Heat grill to medium heat (about 350°F).

3. Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, stir together the barbecue sauce and brown sugar. Brush over both sides of ribs. Place ribs on grill, bone side down, close lid. Grill for 7 min.; turn and grill 7 min. more.
