Directions

For the marmalade glaze

Combine all of the ingredients except for the butter together in a saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the butter and keep warm over low heat until ready to serve.

For the ribs

Place the ribs in a shallow glass dish or large resealable plastic food storage bag. Mix the remaining ingredients together in a nonreactive bowl, and stir until blended thoroughly. Reserve ½ cup marinade for basting.

Pour the marinade over the ribs and toss to thoroughly coat all pieces well. Cover the dish or close the bag and marinate for up to 3 hours in the refrigerator.

Preheat a gas grill on medium heat or prepare a charcoal grill.

Remove the ribs from the marinade and discard the marinade. Grill until the ribs are tender, basting frequently with ½ cup marinade, for about 45 minutes. Then, baste with the marmalade glaze, and serve.
