The Best Baby Back Ribs Recipe

I just had to share this recipe for the best ever baby back ribs. I have made these quite a few times and every time, they turn out great! This recipe is for two slabs of ribs. If you love ribs, you have to try this!!

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. First you want to remove the back membrane of your ribs....this is a must! Taking the membrane off of them will make them cook better and be more tender. Then I combine the following ingredients for a dry rub.

Rib Rub Recipe:

1/4 cup brown sugar,
1 1/2 Tbsp. paprika
1 Tbsp. kosher salt
1 1/2 Tbsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/4-1/2 tsp. cayenne red pepper.

I cut my slabs in half so they fit into the foil lined pan and then rub this dry rub all over your ribs, front and back. Line a 9x13" pan with foil (for easy clean up) and place your half slabs in the pan. Try and place the ribs leaning on their sides in the pan, it is ok to have them touching each other. Then I add water to cover the bottom of the pan about 1/2", just so they do not dry out. You could also pour some BBQ sauce over them instead of the water.Cover the pan tightly with foil and place in in the oven for 2 hours.

Once they are done take them out of the oven and let them cool. Finally, grilled them on medium heat, brushing with your favorite BBQ sauce for about 5-10 min. a side, till they are nicely caramelized. YUM! They were "falling off the bone" tender, without actually falling off the bone. Try these! You won't be sorry!

Welcome Fall

I am a little sad to see Summer leave.....all of the BBQ's, swimming, camping, fishing, boating, gardening and fresh vegetables, long sunny days but do love the Fall also. Now if we can just skip the winter, I would be a happy camper!!!

With tomorrow being the fist day of Fall, I have listed my newest creation on Ebay . Her name is Mae and she measures 26" tall. I hope you can stop by my auctions to view my Harvest offerings:)

Here is peek of her.
Have a great evening!

A Touch of Harvest

I absolutely love this time of year!! The weather could not be more perfect and of course it is football season! This weekend seemed liked it flew by and of course I did not get done as much as I would like to. I did manage to list one thing on Ebay this evening and will be listing another tomorrow evening. Here is a peek at my listing. It is a vintage apron filled with dried tansy and corn cobs in their husks. I love this Harvest peg rack hanger!

Thanks for stopping by!
