  • 8 pounds of pork ribs
  • For the rub
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Coarse sea salt
  • For the guava glaze
  • 2/3 cup guava paste
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat the grill.
  • In a mortar mix all ingredients for the rub: the 3 peppers, cinnamon, ginger, salt and sugar.
  • Cover the ribs with the rub (the part of the meat) and press with your fingers.
  • Place the ribs on the grill (bones down and meat up), over indirect heat and cook covered 30 minutes, until a meat thermometer reaches 150°F (ie the ribs are almost done).
  • With a brush, spread the ribs (only the top) with the BBQ glaze and grill for 5-8 minutes more.
  • Serve hot.
