|1-1/3 cups packed brown sugar|
|2 teaspoons each garlic powder, onion powder and smoked paprika|
|1-1/4 teaspoons each ground cumin, coarsely ground pepper and cayenne pepper|
|12 bone-in country-style pork ribs (about 7 pounds)|
|2 tablespoons canola oil|
|1 medium onion, finely chopped|
|1 cup tomato sauce|
|1/3 cup dark brown sugar|
|1/4 cup ketchup|
|1/4 cup molasses|
|1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar|
|2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce|
|1 teaspoon salt|
|1 teaspoon ground mustard|
|1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika|
|1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper|
In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and seasonings; sprinkle over ribs. Refrigerate, covered, at least 1 hour.
For sauce, in a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir 5-6 minutes or until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
Wrap ribs in a large piece of heavy-duty foil; seal edges of foil. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 hours or until ribs are tender.
Carefully remove ribs from foil. Place ribs over direct medium heat; baste with some of the sauce. Grill, covered, 8-10 minutes or until browned, turning and basting occasionally with remaining sauce. Yield: 12 serving
