Fall Off the Bone Ribs Recipe - baby back ribs coated with a homemade BBQ rub and baked. Finish off on the grill with a homemade BBQ sauce. THE BEST! Better than any restaurant. We never order ribs out anymore.
Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. (I got my ribs at Costco and the membrane was already removed) *I suggest cutting each rack of ribs in half - we had a hard time keeping them in one piece after they were cooked.*
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for the rub.
Place one full rack of ribs on top of two sheets of heavy-duty foil. Apply rub generously to the front and back of the ribs, patting gently to ensure the rub adheres. Fold and wrap foil around each rack. Let ribs marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to overnight. (You can skip marinating if you are pressed for time).
Preheat the oven to 300°F. Place rib packs on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any juices that may leak. Cook ribs for 2½- 3 hours. The ribs are done when you can twist the bones with little resistance.
To prepare BBQ sauce, Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Heat to boiling. Let simmer for 30 minutes.
Heat the grill. Unwrap cooked ribs and transfer them carefully to the grill and brush with BBQ sauce. Grill for 5-10 minutes. Alternately, you can brush the ribs with BBQ sauce and cook them under the broiler in the oven.
Can make the BBQ rub a head of time and store in an air-tight container. The rub will keep for several months.Can make the BBQ sauce a few days in advance and refrigerate until ready to cook ribs.
