3-4poundrack Smithfield/Farmland St. Louis style ribsname depends on market, trimmed and cut in half
3Tablespoonsapple cider vinegar
3largegarlic clovescrushed and minced
3green onion sliced thinwhite and green parts separated
Salt and pepper
Place the ribs in a gallon Ziploc bag. In a small bowl whisk together honey, soy sauce, vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, green onion whites, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¾ teaspoon pepper. Pour the marinade into the Ziploc bag, seal and give the bag a good shake to coat the ribs. Chill for 20 minutes.
Preheat the grill to 325 degrees F. In a disposable foil pan place a wire rack in the bottom. Add 2 cups of water to the pan. Place the ribs, meaty side up, onto the wire rack. DON'T dump the marinade, return it to the refrigerator. Cover the ribs and pan with foil and roast on the preheated grill for 2 ½ hours. Watch the temperature carefully, don’t let the temperature rise above 325!
Remove the ribs from the grill and tent them with foil. Close the grill lid and increase the temperature to medium high, preheat to 500 degrees F.
In the meantime cook the marinade in a small pot over medium-high heat until thickened, stirring occasionally. It should take on a glaze-like consistence, this should take about 5 minutes. Brush the ribs with half the glaze, and return them to the grill. Cook until the ribs are browned, about 5 minutes on each side.
Cut ribs and give them a quick coat with the remaining glaze. Sprinkle with the reserved green onions and serve.
