  • 2 pounds boneless country style pork ribs
  • 1 small sweet vidalia onion sliced
  • 2 cups Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 8 toasted hoagie buns
Hey Grill Hey’s Sweet BBQ Rub
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika (hot or mild, whichever you prefer)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Liberally season the ribs on all sides with the Sweet BBQ Rub. To make the rub,
  • combine all of the ingredients for the rub in a small bowl. Stir well to combine and store in an airtight container. (The spice mix will last in your cupboard for up to a month.)
  • Preheat your grill to 350 degrees F with two zone heat. Place the seasoned ribs on the side of the grill with the direct heat.
  • Transfer the seared ribs to a 9x13 aluminum pan, top with the sliced sweet onions, Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Chipotle BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, honey, and butter. Cover with foil and return to the grill on the indirect heat side.
  • Bake, covered, for 2-3 additional hours or until the ribs are 202 degrees F internal temperature.
  • Allow them to rest in the pan for 20-30 minutes. Carefully transfer one rib to each toasted bun.
  • Top with the caramelized onions and additional sauce as desired. Serve immediately and enjoy.
