Step 1

Prepare ribs by removing membrane from the back of the ribs (use a paper towel to grab the edge and pull), then rinse ribs under cool water and pat dry.

Step 2

Place a sheet of plastic wrap larger than the rib piece on the counter and top with ribs.

Step 3

Take the rib rub and rub it into the meat on both sides using your fingers, trying to coat it as much as possible.

Step 4

Top the ribs with another sheet of plastic, wrapping it, then refrigerate ribs overnight.

Step 5

Remove ribs from refrigerator and allow the ribs to rise to room temp while the oven heats up to 250°F.

Step 6

Remove ribs from plastic and wrap in foil, placing the wrapped ribs on a large shallow baking sheet.

Step 7

Bake ribs for 3 hours, then remove from oven.

Step 8

Finish ribs on the grill, adding bbq sauce as soon as you put them on, and grilling for 6-8 minutes or until sauce sets.

Tips & Variations

  • Plastic wrap
  • Aluminum foil


I made your rub and barbecue sauce awhile back and used them separately on other meats but I had to make them again to try them on your ribs and they were awesome! The meat was so tender and the rub and barbecue sauce couldn't have been better! I have these recipes in a special place now to use again and again.
