This marinade uses a delicious pork rub combined with corn syrup and vinegar to create a flavorful pork rib marinade. If you do not want to use corn syrup, then by all means use a good quality maple syrup, agave syrup, or even honey. However, keep in mind that using any of these will change the flavor of the original recipe.
1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients including Rub. Stir gently until most of the rub ingredients has incorporated into the liquid mixture. Let mixture stand for 10 minutes before using.
2. Marinate ribs overnight in a large resealable bag or a large baking dish. Make sure the ribs are evenly coated and turn occasionally to redistribute the marinade. Grill or smoke ribs as directed.
3. If making ahead of time, simply store marinade in an air tight container in the refrigerator fro up to 7 days after preparation.
Before using, give mixture a good stir and use as directed above.
