smoky baby back ribs... 3 hours

the goods:
1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1/4 cup Cajun seasoning
3 tablespoons paprika
1 and 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
2 racks baby back pork ribs
chipotle sauce:
1 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup chopped chipotle chiles in adobo
2 tablespoons honey

Combine brown sugar, 1/3 cup salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, Cajun seasoning, paprika, cayenne, and ground mustard.

Working with 1 rack at a time, lay a large piece of parchment-lined foil on a work surface, place pork on parchment, and liberally coat both sides with rub. Fold foil and parchment around ribs, crimping the edges together to form a packet. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place rib packets on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 2 to 2 and 1/2 hours.

Stir together chipotle sauce. Remove ribs from oven. Heat grill to high. Unwrap ribs and brush with chipotle sauce. Place ribs directly over heat. Grill until sauce is bubbling and ribs are lightly charred, 2 minutes per side, brushing with more sauce if desired.
