Oven Baked Ribs

  • 2 whole slabs pork baby back ribs, silver skin removed
  • Dry Rub:
  • 8 tablespoons light brown sugar, tightly packed
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt 
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika or regular paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1-2 cups BBQ sauce 

  1. In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Place each slab of baby back ribs on a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil or a double layer of regular tin foil, shiny side down. Sprinkle each side of the ribs generously with the dry rub. Pat the dry rub into the meat. Wrap the ribs tightly in the foil and refrigerate the ribs for a minimum of 8 hours or overnight and up to 48 hours.

  1. When ready to bake the ribs, preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Place the ribs (still in the foil packets) on a foil lined baking sheet and bake the ribs in the oven for 4-6 hours or until tender when picked up with tongs. 

  1. Remove ribs from foil and place on another foil lined baking sheet. Brush with your favorite BBQ sauce and broil until charred and bubbly. 

* I got this recipe from melskitchencafe I used sweet baby rays original bbq sauce. The rub has some good spice to it so the sweet bbq sauce helped to tame that down. I thought that these were good. They were not as tender as when I make them in the crockpot so I think that I will stick to that way but I loved the rub and will use that recipe again.
