What You Need

4 lb pork ribs

3/4 c light brown sugar

1 tsp smokehouse maple

1 tsp mesquite

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

1 tbsp garlic powder

2 c barbecue sauce (your favorite)


  • Preheat oven to 300 F. Peel off the tough membrane that covers the bony side of the ribs.
  • Mix together sugar and spices to make rub.
  • Apply rub to ribs on all sides.
  • Lay ribs on two layers of foil (shiny side out and meaty side down).
  • Lay two layers of foil on top of ribs. Roll and crimp edges tightly (edges facing up to seal).
  • • Place on baking sheet and bake for 2-2 1/2 hours or until meat is starting to shrink away from ends of bone.
  • Remove from oven. Heat broiler.
  • Cut ribs into serving sized portions.
  • Arrange ribs on broiler pan, bone side up. Brush on sauce.
  • Broil for 1 or 2 minutes until sauce is cooked on and bubbly.
  • Turn ribs over. Repeat on other side.
  • Instead of broiling, you can also finish ribs on the grill.
