2 racks baby back pork ribs
2 cups brown sugar
2 tbsp. salt
2 tbsp. fresh ground pepper
2 tbsp. ancho chili powder (optional)
1 lb. bacon fat, cold or at room temperature

  1. If your butcher has not already done so, remove the thin membrane from the back of each rack of ribs.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, salt and pepper. Generously rub mixture into both sides of ribs, then coat with bacon fat.
  3. Place 2 racks of ribs side by side in 2 to 3 layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil, making sure there are no holes or tears. Wrap securely and crimp edges of foil to seal. Repeat process with remaining ribs.
  4. Place packets on a grill over low heat and cook at least 30 to 40 minutes or until ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender, turning every 5 minutes.
  5. Remove packets from grill. Carefully open the packets, remove ribs and discard rendered fat and foil. Return ribs to grill to char.
