Description

During the summer months, my husband loves to use the charcoal grill and smoker to create wonderfully tender ribs. I have tried several methods indoors but have been somewhat disappointed every time. After throwing this recipe together, I realized what I had been doing wrong: I was trying too hard! To get tender ribs, you really just need steam, low heat, and time. These ribs were perfect!

Ingredients

  • ½ teaspoons Ground Mustard
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Paprika
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅛ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 1-½ pound Baby Back Pork Ribs
  • ¾ cups Water
  • 3 Tablespoons Barbecue Sauce

Preparation

Preheat oven to 300ºF.

In a small bowl, combine dry seasonings.

Place a wire rack over a baking sheet. Lay ribs on the wire rack and thoroughly coat both sides with the dry rub. Make sure you cook the meat bone-side down. Place the pan in the oven and carefully add the water to the pan. Cover tightly with foil.

Once the ribs are in the oven, leave them alone for 3 hours. The water in the pan will allow the ribs to steam and the wire rack allows them to cook evenly throughout.

After 3 hours, carefully remove the foil and spread your favorite sauce (I recommend Memphis-style barbecue sauce) over the top of the ribs. Cook uncovered for 30-40 minutes until the sauce has dried and formed a nice crust.

Serve immediately!

This was a HUGE hit with everyone. My husband said they were the best I’ve ever made! The meat was so tender it was hard to cut them apart to serve. The rub was so flavorful and delicious! I will definitely be making this again!
