I got my Baby Back Ribs

Who said you can only have baby back ribs at a restaurant? When Mason and I were in AZ we went out to eat with my parents. Mason ordered the ribs and devoured every bite. So, I set out to find a recipe for delicious ribs. I made these for Mason's birthday and they turned out great! Hope you like them too.

2 racks of ribs
Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce (or your favorite)
Aluminum foil
Cooking spray

(makes enough for 2 racks of ribs)
¼ C. brown sugar
1 ½ T. paprika
1 T. kosher salt
1 ½ T. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper

Cut each rack of ribs into approximately 4 sections. Remove excess fat from ribs. Rub spices on both sides of the ribs. Tear off a piece of aluminum foil that will fit one section of ribs. Spray aluminum foil with cooking spray. Lay rib section on foil and coat with BBQ sauce (both sides). Wrap tightly and repeat for each rib section. Marinate 8 hours or overnight on a cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 300° F. Bake ribs on cookie sheet for 2 ½ hours. Drain juice and remove foil. Add more BBQ sauce and broil in oven until slightly browned.

Wooooo Hoooo!! So glad to see this post. We also love ribs- but I have never tried them at home. That is about to change, though. :) Can't wait to try!

Yes! Hooray for Amanda! Homemade ribs do sound good and I'm sure Derek would be impressed if I made them!
