You can prepare these ribs right up until baking stage and seal them in an airtight plastic container and freeze until ready to bake.


2 cups chili sauce (such as Heinz)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chili powder
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon allspice
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 racks pork ribs


  1. To prepare the marinade, combine all ingredients except ribs in a large bowl.
  2. Place ribs in a large pan. Pour marinade over ribs, making sure to coat all sides. Cover and refrigerate 12 to 24 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 300F.
  4. Remove ribs from marinade; reserve marinade. Place ribs on the rack of a roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, 5 hours, basting with reserved marinade every 30 minutes.
  5. After the last basting, place marinade in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Serve with ribs.
