To my meat eaters: welcome to heaven.
Fall off the bone meaty heaven where everyone gets unlimited racks of ribs, no one ever gets full, and everyone somehow stays healthy.
OK, you’re right, too far; this post isn’t going to give you unlimited racks of ribs (unless you make them), you will be full by the end of eating them, and staying healthy… that’s on you. BUT these ribs do fall off the bone which was the most crucial part of that sentence.
These may also give Bobby Flay a run for his money… but I guess you’ll only find out if you make them….(hint hint hint)….
- 1 rack baby back pork ribs
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 bottle of BBQ Sauce (I used a smoked whiskey BBQ sauce but the choice is yours)
- Using a sharp knife, cut the membrane off of the back of the ribs.
- Combine dry ingredients into a bowl (everything except ribs and BBQ Sauce) and mix well.
- Press the dry rub onto the ribs (top, bottom, left, right, front, back, ALL over!!!).
- Wrap the ribs tightly in foil and then place into a tupperware. Let marinate in the fridge for at least five hours (overnight is ideal).
- When you're ready to cook, preheat oven to 200°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the (still) foil covered ribs on top.
- Bake in the oven for 2.5 hours and then place 1/4 of the bottle of BBQ sauce onto the ribs. Place back into the oven for another 2.5 hours.
- Heat the oven at 400°F on broil; move a rack to the top of the oven.
- Cover the ribs with the remaining BBQ sauce and place on the top rack for 5 minutes until bubbly.
- Remove and wait until they are cool enough to handle.
- Serve warm!
