Tender oven baked ribs with a KC style barbecue sauce

This is a good recipe for the winter months. Let's say you really want dome dank-ass barbecue but don't want to freeze your ass off in front of a grill outside. I'm using a homemade barbecue sauce for this. I will make a seperate recipe for that then link it to this page.

Here's what you will need:

Spice Rub

  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 2 TSP salt
  • 2 TSP granulated garlic
  • 2 TSP onion powder
  • 2 TSP chili powder
  • 1 TSP ground mustard
  • 1 TSP black pepper
  • 1 TSP celery seed
  • 1 TSP ground cumin
  • 1/2 TSP cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 TSP cinnamon

  • Mix all ingredients and set aside


  • 3 lb rack of baby or loin back ribs
  • Bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce or you can use my recipe here (stub)
  • Prepared spice rub

How to make:

  • Preheat oven to 300 deg Fahrenheit
  • In a foil lined baking sheet put down a sheet of foil 2 feet long (shiny side up) and place the ribs on top
  • Rub down both sides of the ribs with the spice mix. Coverting them completly
  • Tightly cover the rack of ribs with the foil sheet
  • Place in the oven and cook for 2 and a half hours. Checking periodically for doneness
  • When the ribs are finished you should be able to pierce with a fork and gently pull them apart but they should also NOT fall off of the bone
  • Take out of the oven and unwrap from the foil
  • Preheat oven to 375 deg Fahrenheit
  • Cover the entire rack of ribs with barbecue sauce
  • Place back in the oven for 20 minute intervals. After each interval brush the ribs with more barbecue sauce
  • Repeat last step 2 more times. The sauce should be carmalizing
  • Take out of the oven and let rest for 15 minutes
  • ENJOY!!!
