Baked Pork Rib Roast with Jack Daniels Barbecue Sauce

This roast fell off the bone and just melted in our mouth, its one of  the most tender pork roast we have ever had! It's a great alternative for those that don't grill for a great barbecue indoors. In our case we had gotten rained out, but it didn't spoil our barbecue, this has all the flavor!






1 medium size pork rib roast 3 or 4 pounds

Marinade:
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups ketchup
1/3 cup vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed firmly
3/4 cup molasses
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 teaspoons liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (or to taste) or 1/4 teas of cayenne pepper
 1/2 cup Bourbon (Jack Daniels was my choice)

Directions: Pre heat oven to 325 degree hot oven.

Combine the garlics with the bourbon (start with a small amount... you can always add more to taste) in a large saucepan; cook until translucent. Add remaining ingredients; bring to a boil.

Simmer for 20 minutes. In a large oil sprayed non stick roasting pan, place roast in the pan. Pour half the sauce on the roast, cover with foil loosely. Bake at 325 on a slow oven till browned and crisp on top, around 1/2 hour per pound. This pork ribs are very tender. Goes well with sweet potatoes, green beans with olive oil,  Flatbread garlic pizza...  Use the additional sauce to dip the pork in... enjoy~
