Smoky BBQ Ribs with Spicy Sriracha BBQ Sauce

Have you got your summer grilling game on? Despite the amount of rain we've gotten here in the Midwest, it hasn't kept us from grilling up our favorite dishes. BBQ ribs is one of our favorites on the grill and part of the fun is making sure they are finger licking good with a great BBQ sauce. These Smoky BBQ Ribs are rubbed with a blend of spices and glazed with a kickin' spicy sriracha sauce! Talk about a tasty way to turn up the heat with the grill on a summer day...

Imparting flavor into ribs is part of the fun in making BBQ ribs. There are a plethora of ways to do so - wet rubs, dry rubs, smoking, marinating, etc. The possibilities are endless and that makes for so many recipes and techniques to try. For these ribs, we went with a dry rub made with a blend of pantry spices. The ribs marinate overnight then grilled low and slow. To finish them off, a spicy BBQ sauce is made with Red Gold’s new Sriracha Ketchup for that perfect kick of heat!

Red Gold has been around since the 1940s growing tomatoes on family farms in Ohio, Michigan and Indiana, where true seasons positively impact flavor — with just the right angle of the sun, perfect temperature, and soil that seems made for growing tomatoes.

This summer, Red Gold  is encouraging home chefs to grill with its tomatoes grown on family farms.
