BBQ season should be year round. BBQ pork ribs are a summer favorite and I make sure to stock up on pork ribs when they go on sale because everyone loves them.
I am always in search for the next great BBQ pork ribs recipe. I came upon this Fall Off the Bone Pork Rib recipe and made it for dinner tonight. This one is a keeper. Between the dry rub and the bbq sauce, you are going to love these tender ribs. I like to serve this meal with homemade coleslaw and some farm-fresh corn on the cob.
- one rack of pork baby back ribs
- juice of one lemon
- 1/4 cup dry rub (recipe below)
- 1/2 cup barbeque sauce (recipe below)
- Preheat oven to 300° F.
- Remove excess fat from ribs. Peel the silver skin off the back of the ribs – lift with a sharp knife and grab with a paper towel to remove.
- Cut ribs apart into individual pieces.
- Rub ribs all over with lemon juice.
- Coat ribs with dry rub. Place meat side down in large baking pan, & cover tightly with foil, shiny side out.
- Bake in the oven for 2 1/2 hours.Remove from oven & pour off liquid.
- Brush bbq sauce over all sides of ribs.
Grill: To finish ribs on the grill, remove from the pan and place ribs on the grill (I use a basket over direct but low heat) basting and turning a few times for about 10 minutes.
Oven: To finish ribs in the oven, set oven to broil and return ribs to the same oven rack, basting and broiling about 5 minutes per side, watching so they don’t burn. They will be so tender, it’s best to turn them using gloved hands.
