The Father’s Day Dinner Recipe That Will Win Dad’s Heart

Father’s day is for celebrating how much we love our dads. There’s no better way to show Dad how much you love him than with the gift of a full and satisfied stomach. Follow Scott Hibb’s amazing Whiskey Grilled Baby Back Ribs recipe to win Dad’s heart this Father’s Day.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 2 hours 40 minute

Ready in: 3 hours
Serves: 4 people


• 2 (2 pound) slabs baby back pork ribs
• coarsely ground black pepper
• 1 tablespoon ground red chili pepper
• 2 ¼ tablespoons vegetable oil
• ½ cup minced onion
• 1 ½ cups water
• ½ cup tomato paste
• ½ cup white vinegar
• ½ cup brown sugar
• 2 ½ tablespoons honey
• 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
• 2 teaspoons salt
• ½ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
• 1 ¼ teaspoons liquid smoke flavoring
• 2 teaspoons whiskey
• 2 teaspoons garlic powder
• ¼ teaspoon paprika
• ½ teaspoon onion powder
• 1 tablespoon dark molasses
• ½ tablespoon ground red chili pepper


1. Preheat oven to 300F
2. Cut each full rack of ribs in half, so that you halve 4 half racks
3. Sprinkle salt and pepper (more pepper than salt) and 1 tablespoon chili pepper over meat
4. Wrap each half rack in aluminum foil
5. Bake for 2 ½ hours
6. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat
7. Cook and stir the onions in oil for 5 minutes
8. Stir in water, tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, honey, and Worcestershire sauce
9. Season with 2 teaspoons salt, ¼ teaspoon black pepper, liquid smoke, whiskey, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, dark molasses, and ½ tablespoon ground chili pepper
10. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat
11. Simmer for 1 ¼ hours, uncovered, or until sauce thickens
12. Remove from heat, and set sauce aside
13. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat
14. Remove the ribs from the oven, and let stand for 10 minutes
15. Remove the racks from the foil, and place on the grill
16. Grill the ribs for 3 to 4 minutes on each side
17. Brush sauce on the ribs while they’re grilling, just before you serve them (adding it too early will burn it)

*With the extra whiskey why not pour your Dad a glass (or two) on the rocks to go with these mouthwatering ribs!
