Chipotle and Honey Glazed Ribs
Ribs are a classic favorite for a summertime barbecue. In this recipe, they’re slow-cooked in the oven with an aromatic herb and garlic paste, then finished off on the grill with a smoky chipotle chile and honey mustard glaze. Canola oil’s mildness helps all those flavors pop and its high smoke point is just right for the grill.
