Baby Back Ribs, Barbecue-Style
Baby back pork ribs
1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
Barbecue seasoning or your favorite homemade barbecue rub


First: to give credit where it's due, I got this basic recipe by searching for baby back ribs on You'll find reviews on the recipe there as well. I'm passing it along here because it's easy and very good!

1. If you are working with a large slab(s), divide into sections (mine are between 6-8 ribs per section).

2. Wash each section and pat dry with paper towels.

3. Apply the rub of your choice. I use barbecue seasoning, a little garlic powder, and a little salt and pepper.

4. Using either one sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil or two sheets of regular foil, place the ribs on the foil, apply a generous amount of barbecue sauce (not too much, though, or you risk leakage) and seal the foil.

5. Refrigerate overnight.

6. Preheat the oven to 250 and place rib packages on the higher rack of the oven to prevent the foil from burning and the ribs from cooking too quickly.

7. Cook the ribs for three or four hours at 250 and gradually increase the temp. to 300 for another two-three hours (note: I am at a high altitude and need more time; you may not need as much for tender ribs--you won't hurt them by checking them from time to time).

8. Fire up the grill (barbecue, charcoal, or even your broiler after you remove the rib packages).

9. Remove the ribs from the oven and foil. Reapply more sauce if necessary and carmelize the sauce on the grill or in the broiler.

10. Serve and enjoy!
