This super tender BBQ Rib recipe is an easy, hands off dinner for any dinner or party!



  • (4) 3 lb. pork baby back ribs
  • BBQ Sauce, your favorite kind or a few different flavors

For the Dry Rub

  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Add all the ingredients for the dry rub to a small bowl and mix together.
  3. Divide the rub evenly between the four slabs of ribs and rub in well on both sides.
  4. Wrap each slab of ribs tightly in foil then place onto a baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until tender.
  6. At this point you can cool the ribs and keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 days before cooking.
  7. When you’re ready to grill the ribs, preheat your grill to medium heat, then place each slab of ribs onto the grill.
  8. Let the ribs warm up for a few minutes, then start to baste the ribs with bbq sauce on the bottom side of the rack. Let the sauce set on the bottom for 2-3 minutes, then flip the racks over to the top and baste with BBQ sauce generously. Close the lid and let the sauce set for 2-3 minutes on the top. Baste with one more layer of sauce and remove the ribs from the grill.
  9. Let the ribs rest for a couple of minutes, then slice into sections (2-3 ribs per sections) and serve with extra sauce on the side if desired.
