paleo baby back ribsBeing that I’m not much of a BBQ sauce girl, I thought we’d grill up these ribs with a Memphis Style rub instead.   I didn’t want sugar, but instead opted for honey which I drizzled on them prior to the rub.  This way the spices stuck to it and it formed a nice crust on the outside.


  • 2-3 racks of pork baby back ribs
  • honey (less than 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tbsp salt
  • 1/4 tbsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp cayenne
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • celery seed

Remove silver skin if the butcher hasn’t, rinse and pat dry.  Place on a baking sheet, drizzle honey and spread it all over.  Apply the rub liberally all over.  If you have extra, do front and back.  Place on a grill rib rack at 250 degrees for about 3 hours.
