Grilled Jamaican-Style Jerk Ribs

I am a sucker for anything made on the grill.  There's just something that happens when meat has been cooked over the fire until it's beautifully carmelized.  The smokey flavors just make my mouth sing with pleasure.

There's also nothing better than running to Walmart, grabbing some Farmland  St Louis style pork spareribs, letting them marinate all night in a sweet and spicy jerk marinade and then letting them cook over the grill.

*wipes drool off chin*

Whew.  Y'all, I can't even begin to describe how goods these ribs are.  If you like sweet and tangy flavors, you will loooooooove these.  The flavor is out of this world.

I have been addicted to jerk chicken for awhile.  There's a local restaurant here called Chino Bandido that was featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives.  It's an interesting spot with crazy, fusion concoctions.  One of my favorite things to get there is their jerk chicken.  I figured jerk ribs on the grill would be a fun and delicious Mothers Day meal.

Marinating the ribs overnight in the marinade will help tenderize the meat and allow the flavor to really embed itself and the flavors to marry.

Baking them for two hours before grilling will help seal in the moisture.

Making a reduction with the marinade to baste while the ribs are on the grill will create a beautiful and flavorful carmelization.

Grill over medium-to-high heat and you have the most beautiful and tasteful ribs... ever.
