Chipotle Blackberry BBQ Glazed Spare Ribs

So this year for Easter I decided to skip on the Glazed Ham and do a little something different with some slow roasted spare ribs. Not traditional, but this could be a new tradition for us. They were so perfect, so tender and the sauce is a work of art.

I made this Chipotle Blackberry BBQ Sauce last year to put on Grilled Pork Chops but this seemed like a better option. I scored some beautiful Pork Spare Ribs from Whole Foods and they were just calling for some sweet, savory and a little spicy sauce to be glazed on them.

Now you can for sure do these ribs on the grill but I’ve always had really good luck doing them low and slow for 4 hours in the oven and they come out perfect every time. I always think there’s too many variables on the grill for inconsistency, however if you have a reliable grill by all means don’t let me stop you and your bad self! Someday I will master the art of BBQ, but I still need a few years of experience to throw down with the big boys before that happens.

The Chipotle Blackberry BBQ Sauce recipe is on the site, follow the link. Make ahead of time and store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.


  • 1 rack Pork Spare Ribs
  • Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 bottles Beer {Whatever you like to drink will work}
  • Chipotle Blackberry BBQ Sauce
  • Step 1 Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F.
  • Step 2 Set a wire rack in a large sheet pan. Pour the beer on the bottom of the sheet pan, careful not to cover more than the bottom of the sheet pan. Season the rack of spareribs with salt and pepper on both sides and rub in. Set the ribs on the wire rack. Cover tightly with foil and roast for 2 hours.
  • Step 3 Meanwhile, make the Chipotle Blackberry BBQ Sauce according to recipe.
  • Step 4 After the ribs have cooked for 2 hours, remove the ribs from the oven, uncover. Increase the oven’s heat to 325 degrees F. Place back in the over to cook for 1 hour. Remove ribs and brush BBQ sauce evenly over the whole rack. Place back in the oven to cook for an additional hour, or until the meat begins to pull away from the bone. Baste with more sauce over the top every 20 minutes.
  • Step 5 Remove ribs from oven and tent with foil. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with extra sauce along side.

You can make the BBQ sauce the day before for a very easy meal prep. I paired this meal with watermelon, Grilled Corn Salad and Spicy Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread. Perfect wholesome meal for Easter Sunday!
