Cranberry Barbecue Baby Back Ribs



  • 2 racks baby back ribs, cut in half
  • 1 cup of Cranberry BBQ Sauce (see below)
  • Ingredients:
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 6 oz. tomato paste
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper



  • For Cranberry BBQ Sauce:
  • Add all ingredients into a non-stick saucepan.
  • Heat on medium until mixture starts to simmer and then mix to combine ingredients.
  • Cover and continue heating until mixture comes to a boil, turn down to a simmer and stir mixture. Continue simmering, stirring intermittently until sauce thickens, approximately 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool. When mixture is cool, blend with an immersion blender until smooth.
  • Pour into covered container and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • For ribs: Pre-cook ribs in large stock pot for 50 minutes on medium.
  • Remove from pot and place on large serving platter. Slather with Cranberry Barbecue Sauce. Sauce will soak in, so be sure to set aside extra for basting.
  • Preheat grill on low-medium. Place ribs bone side down on grill until grill marks appear or heated through. Repeat for other side. Baste ribs with sauce as you go.
  • Remove ribs from grill to serving platter, cover with aluminum foil and allow to rest a few minutes. Cut ribs and serve with side of Cranberry Barbecue Sauce.
