  1. Heat oven to 275 degrees.
  2. Combine the salt, granulated garlic, chili powder and black pepper in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Add all of the coffee glaze ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until mixture has thickened and reduced by about half. Remove from heat.
  4. Remove the membrane from the back of the rack of ribs. Liberally season with the rub and brush a generous amount of coffee glaze on top. Store the remaining coffee glaze in the refrigerator for later use.
  5. Wrap the ribs in foil and place on a baking sheet. Cook for 2 ½ hours or until ribs are fork-tender.
  6. Remove from the oven and unwrap the foil so the top of the ribs is showing and liberally brush the barbecue sauce on top.
  7. Turn on the broiler and cook the ribs for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the ribs and brush on the remaining coffee glaze and broil for another 3 to 4 minutes or until mixture begins to caramelize.
  8. Let ribs cool for about 10 minutes and then serve.
