Directions

Special equipment: Kitchen twine

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Put the ribs on a baking sheet, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Stick them in the oven, and let the ribs bake, low and slow for 1 1/2 hours.

Meanwhile, make the sauce. Wrap the bacon around the middle of the thyme sprigs and tie with kitchen twine so you have a nice bundle. Heat a 2-count of oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the thyme bundle and cook slowly for 3 to 4 minutes to render the bacon fat and give the sauce a nice smoky taste. Add the onion and garlic and cook slowly, without coloring, for 5 minutes. Add all of the rest of the sauce ingredients, give the sauce a stir, and turn the heat down to low. Cook slowly for 20 minutes to meld the flavors. Put some sauce in a separate bowl for basting, reserving the remaining sauce for serving.

Baste the ribs with the sauce and let them continue cooking, basting twice more, for 30 more minutes. When the ribs are cooked, take them out of the oven. You can let them hang out like this until you're ready to eat.

When ready to eat, preheat the broiler for 5 minutes and broil the ribs, basting with the sauce. They should become crisp and charred, about 5 minutes on each side. Pick the onion and garlic out of the sauce and serve with ribs.

    OMG, never made bbq sauce from scratch & am so glad I picked this one for my first! Absolutely great on spare ribs & chicken. So simple & quick to make, but the ultimate comes in on the second day. As a good spaghetti sauce, it tastes even better the second day. I now make my sauces from scratch.

    Easy recipe to make. On the sweet, gooey, messy-eating type of ribs. Think saving 1/3rd of sauce for service time is sufficient. I didn't see Tyler make this recipe on TV but what does "Heat a 2-count of oil..." mean?--what's "2-count". I like Tyler's cooking so I made it anyways. With 2 cups ketchup and 1 cup of peach perserves is like candy ribs. I discard 50% of the new recipes I make as I'm always seeking for something better but I did keep this one. Try it, you'll like it.
