    • 1-1/3 cups packed brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoons each garlic powder, onion powder and smoked paprika
    • 1-1/4 teaspoons each ground cumin, coarsely ground pepper and cayenne pepper
    • 12 bone-in country-style pork ribs (about 7 pounds)
  • SAUCE:
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
    • 2 tsp. Il Fusti Garlic Olive Oil
    • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch strips
    • 1 cup tomato sauce
    • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup ketchup
    • 1/4 cup molasses
    • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
    • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper



    1. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and seasonings; sprinkle over ribs. Refrigerate, covered, at least 1 hour.
    2. For sauce, in a large saucepan, heat  Il Fusti Garlic Olive Oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender, 5-6 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
    3. Wrap ribs in a large piece of heavy-duty foil; seal edges of foil. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat until ribs are tender, 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 hours.
    4. Carefully remove ribs from foil. Place ribs over direct medium heat; baste with some of the sauce. Grill, covered, until browned, 8-10 minutes, turning and basting occasionally with remaining sauce.
