Barbecue Ribs

These Barbecue Ribs take some time to cook but are actually very simple. It’s a crowd favorite at cookouts and for game day hang outs. We typically make the seasoning the day before if we don’t have any leftover from the last time we made ribs. Then we can marinate the ribs and cook them in the morning before the games are on. Now that it’s the middle of the winter we bake them in the oven. If it’s a sunny day we will still uncover the grill and smoke them.

From our kitchen to yours, cheers!

The baked baby back ribs become so tender, they fall off the bone when you try to slice the ribs up. If it’s just us making this, a lot of times we will use the extra meat from the ribs on salads the next day or as tacos with some fresh cabbage and coleslaw, a little squirt of lime always provides some crisp fresh taste. We keep talking about adding this to some baked mac & cheese, thoughts?

Well, whatever you decide to put this on, that is if you even have any leftovers, I’m sure you will not regret it. These ribs are so packed with flavor, it’s a great addition to any dish. Phillip said it took him a while to perfect the seasoning, a little more of this, a little less of that, until he found his flavor.

The flavor that you get from smoking them on the grill is incredible. It is definitely better than the oven in my personal opinion. Since its winter, enjoy these oven baked ribs and when spring time comes look out for our smoke ribs!
