Add all the ingredients to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce to a low simmer. Let simmer for 25 minutes, on low heat, stirring occasionally. 

Preheat grill to medium heat. 

Take ribs out of the oven and place on grill to finish. Cook for 20 more minutes, turning and basting with sauce. Remove from grill and serve as either racks or cut into ribs. 

*Cook’s Note: 2 slabs of Baby Back Ribs equates to 4 racks of ribs
