I have no idea who Chef Neal is but Emeril Lagasse gave him credit for this recipe in a cookbook I have of his.
I was floored the first time I read that he wrapped the meat in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil but it really works!!The sauce makes a lot but keeps in the fridge. I do these in the oven and also on the bbq.
Just wanted to share with you all!!


I have been making this rib recipe for about 5 or 6 years and everyone loves it!!!!!

How to Make Chef Neals's Baby Back Ribs with Orange Chipotle Glaze

Step-by-Step

  1. Soak wood chips in water for at least 30 mins. drain well.
    Preheat a smoker if you have one to 200 degrees....I don't so I use my bbq. I do these inside in my oven in the Winter.
    Combine the salt and the spices. Rub about 2 tsps in each slab of ribs on both sides.
    Smoke for 20 mins. I skip this step as I don't have smoker. I wrap the ribs in the plastic and foil and cook over a low heat on bbg or in oven at 350.The ribs must be warpeed tightly in the plastic.
    Bake for 1 1/2 hours. Remove and let cool about 20 mins still wrapped. B
    Before serving coat the ribs with the glaze and pass glaze around at table.
    If I bbq these I brush the glaze on and put them back on the bbq till glaze starts to brown.
  2. Orange Chipotle Glaze

    Bring orange juice to a boil and boiluntil reduced to about 1/4 cup and is thick.
    Add sugar, vinegar, soy sauce and chilies. Boil stirring oftenuntil sugar has dissolved and sauce has reduced to 4 cups and coats a spoon...20 - 30 mins.
    Glaze keeps in fridge for at least 3 - 4 days.
