  • 2 racks of baby back ribs
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for heat)
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C).
  2. Prepare Ribs:
    • Remove the thin membrane from the back of the ribs. This helps the seasoning penetrate the meat and makes the ribs more tender.
  3. Make Dry Rub:
    • In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, salt, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper (if using).
  4. Season Ribs:
    • Rub the dry mix all over the ribs, coating them evenly.
  5. Wrap Ribs:
    • Wrap each rack of ribs tightly in aluminum foil. Place the wrapped ribs on a baking sheet, meat side up.
  6. Bake:
    • Bake the ribs in the preheated oven for 2.5 to 3 hours, or until the meat is tender and pulls away from the bones easily.
  7. Add Barbecue Sauce:
    • Carefully remove the ribs from the oven and unwrap them. Discard the foil.
    • Brush the ribs generously with barbecue sauce.
  8. Broil (Optional):
    • Increase the oven temperature to 400°F (200°C) or turn on the broiler.
    • Place the ribs back in the oven, uncovered, and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the sauce is caramelized and sticky. Watch closely to prevent burning.
  9. Serve:
    • Remove the ribs from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before cutting into portions.
