Try a few of these Hawaiian spareribs and you'll think you're on the Big Island. Simply smoke a sparerib slab, then bathe it in a luscious pineapple bbq sauce for Hawaiian flavor.
For the sauce, you'll need...
One cup pineapple juice
One cup tomato sauce
One-half cup sugar
One-quarter cup teriyaki sauce
One-quarter cup lemon juice
One tablespoon onion powder
One teaspoon salt
One teaspoon black pepper
One-half teaspoon powdered ginger
Combine all of the bbq sauce ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and continue boiling until the sauce is slightly thickened.
Take a trimmed sparerib slab and marinate it for 2 hours in unsweetened pineapple juice. Drain well, then season with salt, pepper and just a touch of powdered ginger. Smoke until very tender. If you can find guava wood for the smoker, use it for authentic flavor.
Allow the ribs to cool slightly, then cut into individual pieces and drench with the sauce. Serve your Hawaiian spareribs on top of a pile of steamed white rice.
