  • 4 to 5 pounds pork ribs
  • Salt and pepper
  • No-Cook Low Carb Bourbon Barbecue Sauce, recipe follows
  • No-Cook Low Carb Bourbon Barbecue Sauce:
  • 29 ounces no sugar added tomato sauce
  • 6 ounces no sugar added tomato paste
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 3/4 cup sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar substitute, optional (recommended: Sugar Twin brand)
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Preheat oven to 290 degrees F.

  • Season the ribs liberally with salt and pepper on both sides and place in a proportionate size deep roasting pan. Add 1 cup barbecue sauce and 2 cups water over the ribs until almost completely submerged; if not add a bit more sauce and water or use a smaller pan. Cover tightly with aluminum foil, place on center rack of the oven, and bake for about 2 hours or until meat is almost falling off the bone. Remove, drain liquid immediately, and coat cooked ribs with fresh barbecue sauce. It is best to make the ribs a day ahead up to this point. Refrigerate overnight and bring to room temperature before grilling.

  • Preheat a grill to high. Place ribs on grill and grill for just a few minutes on each side. Serve.

  • Cook's Note: If you have extra sauce, freeze it.
