Not sure what to do with those blushing peaches that are weighing down your tree branches or perhaps just taking up space on your countertop? Well, we can't resist a little alliteration so it's time for some pork and peaches!
Break open those spare ribs and a pot cause you're making some sticky spare ribs with a peach glaze. (If you're not a jam-maker, don't dismay. Just go buy a jar of your favorite peach preserves or have your jammin' friend make you some.) These ribs are meaty, with a nice barky bite on the exterior and a thick, sweet sauce that will have you wishing you had more fingers to lick.
SWEET AS A PEACH GLAZED RIBS
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: about 5 hours
RECOMMENDED PELLETS: Maple
SERVES: 6 to 8
3 to 4 racks pork spare ribs
1 tablespoon butter
1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 cup peach preserves
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup bourbon
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon grated gingeer
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub or Sweet Rub
Wipe the ribs with damp paper towels and trim off excess fat. Season the ribs on both sides with the Pork & Poultry or Sweet Rub.
Start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (about 5 minutes). Switch the temperature to 275 degrees F (or Medium heat) and let the grill preheat, lid closed for 10 to 15 minutes.
Place the ribs either in a rib rack or directly on the grill grate, bone side down and cook for 3 hours, misting with apple juice every 30 to 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add in the chopped onion and saute until golden brown.
Stir in the peach preserves, corn syrup, vinegar, bourbon and Worcestershire sauce. Add in the ginger, mustard and garlic; mix well.
Simmer for 15 minutes or until the sauce starts to thicken. Set it aside.
After 3 hours, switch the setting to Smoke; close the lid and smoke the ribs for 1-1/2 to 2 hours, misting every 30 minutes.
Switch the grill to 275 degrees F for 10 minutes to finish.
Pull the ribs off the grill and liberally brush on the peach sauce while they're still hot.
