Recipe #92: My Oven Baked Baby Back Ribs

If you haven't read before that I love pork of any kind, I do...bacon, chops, ribs.  These oven baked ribs couldn't be easier, but that said, I have never made ribs on a grill, but "that" said, you don't have to babysit these at all.  The most time needed is to let the ribs sit with the rub and to remove the skin on the back of the ribs and also the silver skin veins that run through many areas.  Perhaps all of "that" doesn't bother you, and if not, it's even less time consuming.  Now, let's cook...

1 rack baby back ribs                                                 rub
heavy duty tin foil                                                      barbecue sauce
baking sheet


4 tbsp brown sugar                                                    2 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder                                                      1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder                                                 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp paprika                                                            1/4 tsp salt

Have two large pieces of heavy duty foil ready to go, as well as a baking sheet with an edge.  I cut the rack in half.  Then turning over, I put a knife under a corner of the silver skin on the back, lift up, then pull the rest wth a napkin.  It should pull right off.  After trimming anything else you want on the ribs, put rub on both sides of the ribs.  Wrap each half tightly in a piece of foil, then place on the baking sheet and put in the fridge for 3-24 hours.  In a pinch, you can just put the rub on them, wrap and bake.  Take ribs out of frig, and bake for about 3 hours on 250.  Take out of oven and unwrap ribs, getting rid of foil and all juice/fat that is with it.  Place a new piece of foil on the baking sheet, and brush the ribs with barbecue sauce.  Bake another 20 minutes, then brushing more sauce on, place under the broiler just until browning.  You're ready to dig in.  Bon appetit!
