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!
