1-2 racks of baby back ribs, or more depending upon how many you are trying to feed.
One rack will feed usually feed two, but big eaters can often eat a rack themselves.
Barbeque sauce, either a good purchased one or it is easy to make your own.
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons cumin
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Optional-if you like it spicy add 1-2 tablespoons of cayenne pepper. Can also add another tablespoon of black pepper.
Cooking the ribs:
Mix all of the dry rub seasoning together in a bowl. Bring the ribs to room temperature and apply the rub generously to the ribs. Rub it into the meat, then let it sit for one hour.
Place the ribs on a foil-lined baking sheet, then cover the ribs with foil and bake in the oven at 275 degrees for two hours.
You can then take one of two steps. Either remove the foil, slather with barbeque sauce, and place bake into the oven uncovered for 30 minutes or until meat is falling of the bone.
Or, you can finish the ribs off on your grill by the same method. Just don’t place them directly over high heat or the sauce will burn. Baste them a time or two with sauce until done.
