Ingredients

5 tablespoons Paniolo Rounemup seasoning (or use 2 tablespoons paprika, 2 tablespoons ground cumin, 1 tablespoon salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper)

2 1/2 tablespoons Kona coffee, finely ground

1 teaspoon salt

8 baby back ribs

30 ounces water

10 ounces Worcestershire sauce

2 (12-ounce) bottles Kona Coffee BBQ grilling and dipping sauce

Directions

Special equipment:
Keawe wood
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Grind the Paniolo spice together with the coffee and salt (or the coffee with paprika, cumin, salt and pepper). Rub spice mixture over all the ribs. Place ribs in a heavy roasting pan and cook uncovered for 12 minutes, drain off excess fat.
  3. Lower the oven temperature to 375 degrees F.
  4. Mix together water and Worcestershire sauce and pour around ribs. Cover pan tightly with foil and bake until tender, about 1 hour 45 minutes. Ribs may be prepared to this point a few days in advance.
  5. To prepare barbecue, light the Keawe wood and allow it to burn until coals are medium hot and spread out. Cook ribs 3 minutes on each side and dip or brush ribs in the sauce and cook slowly for another 5 to 6 minutes. Be careful not to burn the ribs.
  6. Warm a little Kona Coffee BBQ sauce to serve on the side. Serve with grilled corn and campfire potato salad or your favorite sides.
