There is so much flavor to go around in these ribs. After you let the ribs marinate in the seasoning, grill them and pour the basting sauce on top while they're cooking. Your mouth will be watering the entire time you prepare this dish.

For sauce, whisk all ingredients in medium bowl.

Mix first 6 rib ingredients in a bowl. Rub seasoning mix into each side of each rib rack. Cover and chill for at least 6 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Remove ribs from refrigerator and sprinkle with onion. Place ribs in a baking dish and roast until meat is tender and begins to pull away from bones, about 2 hours. Let cool when finished.

Prepare barbecue with medium-high heat. Grill ribs for about 5 minutes per side. Brush on all sides with basting sauce. Grill until sauce becomes sticky glaze, about 3 minutes longer per side. Serve warm on top of lettuce and side of tomatoes.
