BBQ Baby Back Ribs

BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Baby back ribs are cut from the upper, smaller ribs of a pig, where the ribs meet the spine.  They are tender and flavorful and are called “baby” back ribs because their size is so much smaller than the rest of the ribs.  Each rack of baby back ribs usually has anywhere from 10-13 ribs.  Since they are small, one rack will usually feed about 2 people.  Unless you are a big eater, like me.  I can eat a rack of them by myself if I’m hungry enough!  

Cut the baby back ribs into sections of about 2-3 ribs per section.

Cut Ribs into Sections

Par-boil on a very low simmer for 30 minutes.

Gently Boil Ribs

Preheat oven to 250 degrees and slather the ribs in your favorite BBQ sauce.  Cover the ribs with aluminum foil and cook at 250 degrees for 45 minutes.

After the ribs have been in the oven for about 30 minutes, heat an outdoor grill on medium (about 350 degrees).

Once the ribs have cooked in the oven for 45 minutes, remove them and slather another layer of BBQ sauce on them.

Grill the ribs for 5-10 minutes, turning once.  The ribs have already cooked fully but now you want to caramelize the BBQ sauce.  Enjoy!
