Tips or Notes:

- Adjust the sweetness and garlic intensity to your liking by tweaking the amount of honey and garlic in the glaze.
- Serve the ribs with your favorite sides, such as coleslaw, cornbread, or grilled vegetables.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use spare ribs instead of baby back ribs?
Yes, you can use spare ribs for this recipe. Spare ribs are slightly fattier and may require longer cooking times, but the honey garlic glaze will work wonderfully with them.
Can I make the glaze ahead of time?
Absolutely! You can prepare the honey garlic glaze in advance and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Reheat it gently before brushing it onto the ribs.
