Classic Baby Back Ribs

Cuisine:

    Ribs are fatty by nature, which is why we want them, but there are two efficient approaches to reduce calorie intake: Reduce the gloppy, candy-sweet sauce and serve the finished meal in appropriate amounts. We've done both and still serve ribs that are more appealing than the ones that have been lodged in all of our brains for the past decade.

    These are the Ultimate Fall off the bone BBQ Baby Back Ribs, spiced with a smoky-sweet homemade dry rub and topped with your favorite BBQ sauce! Each mouthful is more delicious and tender than the previous, whether slow-roasted in the oven or grilled over hot coals. There’s nothing like fall-off-the-bone ribs to get your Summer started right! If you like these, you’ll go crazy for these Smoked Beef Ribs and Marinated Skirt Steak!!

     

    Baby back ribs grow from the top of the rib cage, below the loin muscle, between the spine and the spare ribs. A rack of baby back ribs should include at least eight ribs but can have up to thirteen!

     

    These ribs have a moderate flavor with a somewhat sweet undertone. They not only respond nicely to strong spice, but their minimal fat level means more fall-off-the-bone flesh! The size of these ribs will be lesser in contrast because pigs have a tiny ribcage.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Preheat the oven to 250°F.

    2
    Done

    Take the thin membrane off the rear of each rack of ribs and discard it (if not already removed by the butcher). Rub the spice rub all over the ribs.

    3
    Done

    Cover firmly with aluminum foil and bake for approximately 90 minutes, or until the flesh is cooked and just begins to come away from the bone.

    4
    Done

    Preheat a medium-hot grill. In a wood-chip box, insert the meticulously or hickory chips and directly put the box over the flame. (You may directly add the chips to the hot coals when using charcoal.)

    5
    Done

    Place the ribs on the grill, brush with the barbecue sauce.

    6
    Done

    Cook, sprinkle with sauce continually for 15 to 20 minutes on the surface of the ribs and make a deep black crust.
