Baby Back Ribs

4 servings
  • 2 racks of baby back ribs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups BBQ sauce of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons cracked pepper
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon granulated onion powder
  • Season ribs with salt, pepper, granulated onion powder and granulated garlic powder.

  • Lay ribs meat-side down on a baking sheet with an elevated edge. Add one cup of water and cover the sheet pan completely in aluminum foil.

  • Bake in 325-degree oven for approx. 2 1/2 hours or until meat is tender enough to be pulled from the bone.

  • Chill the baby back ribs in the refrigerator for about one hour so that the meat doesn't fall apart.

  • Apply canola oil to grill grates and heat to medium-high.

  • Place ribs on grill meat-side up and baste with BBQ sauce.

  • Grill for approx. 3 minutes.

  • Flip so meat-side is down, and grill for 3 minutes. Apply BBQ sauce to the back of the ribs.

  • Grill ribs until BBQ sauce has started to caramelize and meat has started to get crisp edges.

  • Let ribs rest for 5 minutes, then brush with BBQ sauce before cutting them into 1-and 2-bone pieces.

  • Serve with remaining BBQ sauce on the side for dipping.

  • You can find prepared and cut racks of ribs at your local butcher or grocery store. If you have a full rack of ribs, we suggest you cut them in half if you're cooking in an oven in your home kitchen or on a standard gas grill.
