Barbecued Ribs
I don't remember which website I got this recipe from, but they are yummy. I have modified it a bit. I sometimes take the membrane off the night before and cover the ribs with the rub as directed and have them wrapped in the double aluminum foil and in the refrigerator overnight. Then easy-peasy to put in the oven next day, throw some potatoes in to bake and just add any other items to the menu.


4 lbs pork ribs

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1 teaspoon  salt 

1 tablespoon smoked paprika powder

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)


2 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray)



  1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Peel off tough membrane that covers the bony side of the ribs.
  3. Mix together the sugar and spices to make the rub.
  4. Apply rub to ribs on all sides.
  5. Lay ribs on two layers of foil, shiny side out and meaty side down.
  6. Lay two layers of foil on top of ribs and roll and crimp edges tightly, edges facing up to seal.
  7. Place on baking sheet and bake for 2-2 1/2 hours or until meat is starting to shrink away from the ends of the bone.
  8. Remove from the oven
  9. Heat the broiler
  10. Cut ribs into serving sized portion of 2-3 ribs.
  11. Arrange on broiler pan, bony side up
  12. Brush on sauce
  13. Broil for 1-2 minutes until sauce is cooked on and bubbly.
  14. Turn ribs over.
  15. Repeat on other side.
  16. You can grill the ribs on a grill to cook the sauce also.
