Baked Barbecue Pork Ribs (4 Servings)

  • Author: Bobby


  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon of freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1 rack of baby back pork ribs, approximately 3 pounds
  • ⅔ cup of prepared barbecue sauce or homemade


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Aluminum foil should be used to line a rimmed baking pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper, brown sugar, and cayenne pepper. Keep aside.
  3. Insert a butter knife beneath the membrane at one end of the ribs and lift to remove the membrane from the rear side of the ribs. Grasp the membrane with a paper towel and gently pull to remove it completely.
  4. Rub the spice mixture all over the ribs as evenly as possible.
  5. Place the ribs on the baking sheet that has been prepared (meat side up). Aluminum foil should be used to cover and seal the container.
  6. Bake for 3 hours, make sure the ribs are soft and tender.
  7. Remove the ribs from the oven and remove the aluminum foil carefully. Any juices should be drained and discarded. Brush both sides of the ribs with barbecue sauce.
  8. Turn the oven broiler to high and bake for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the sauce begins to boil and caramelize (watching carefully so that ribs do not burn).
