Haleiwa Barbecued Pork Ribs

2 whole slabs pork ribs, cut into sections of 3 ribs each
enough water to cover ribs in stockpot
½ cup sea salt
4 cloves of garlic, whole
1 finger fresh ginger, whole
2 green onions, whole


Haleiwa Barbecue Sauce

1 teaspoon red chili flakes
2 cans (15 ounces) tomato sauce
2 cups brown sugar
½ cup vinegar 
½ cup honey
2 cups onions, minced
2 teaspoon liquid smoke
2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon coarsely cracked black pepper
2 Tablespoons steak sauce
½ teaspoon dry mustard
1 cup canned crushed pineapple
1 Tablespoon garlic, minced

Place ribs in stockpot and cover with water.  Start with ½ cup sea salt and keep adding until water taste salty, then add garlic, ginger, and green onions.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and let simmer 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until ribs are tender.

While ribs are cooking, combine all barbecue sauce ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for one hour.  Strain.

When ribs are tender, remove from stockpot and let cool.  Brush with barbecue sauce and grill over hot coals on a hibachi until heated through.  Baste the ribs with barbecue sauce as they cook.
