  • Heat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Mix barbecue sauce, marmalade and pepper sauce until blended.
  • Place half the ribs in single layer in center of large sheet of heavy-duty foil. Bring up long sides of foil. Double fold both short ends of foil to seal, leaving top open. Add 1/4 cup water (or 1 ice cube) to foil packet through opening at top. Double fold top to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Repeat with remaining ribs.
  • Grill 45 min. to 1 hour or until ribs are done. Remove ribs from foil packets; return ribs to grill. Brush ribs with barbecue sauce mixture. Grill 15 min., turning and brushing occasionally with remaining sauce.

Size Wise

Ribs are fun to make for a holiday or special event and share with friends and family.


For a change of pace, brush cooked ribs with a mixture of 1/4 cup each A.1. Original Sauce, ketchup and apricot preserves instead of the barbecue sauce mixture.

    I've always cooked my ribs in a foil pack. They come out perfect at 45 minutes to sauce them, but poke them and I marinade them in a teriyaki marinade first.

    We made this last night, it could not be easier or any better. My husband raved over the barbecue sauce, although I used peach preserves instead of the orange marmalade because that is what I had on hand, but it was all just delicious! Very tender and no need to watch it so closely on the grill until the last 15 minutes. We loved this recipe - thanks!!
