Oven Baked “Fall Off the Bone” BBQ Pork Ribs


“Barbecue may not be the road to world peace, but it’s a start.” – Anthony Bourdain

When I think of barbecue, I imagine happy smiling faces.

To be exact, the happy smiling faces of men in my life.

I ALSO GET HAPPY ABOUT BBQ, so don’t get me wrong…

But the way their faces light up when they hear “ribs or steak for dinner?” well.. you know what I mean.  *shrugs*


So here’s my tried and true method of baking pork ribs in the oven or on the grill using the “Low and Slow” technique to ensure the meat is falling off the bone and delicious, every time!  The next time you’re at the grocery store grab a rack of ribs and give this one a go.



If it wasn’t because of the rigid-cold weather I would’ve cooked these on the grill, but I opted for the oven instead.  The disadvantage is that they missed that pellet smoked flavor but they were still delicious and almost perfect.  For those of you who don’t own a grill… or ran out of smoker pellets, or even ran out of grill propane, this IS THE PERFECT WAY to satisfy your barbecue cravings

…..straight out of the oven.




Start by heavily seasoning them…



Then double wrap in foil…



And bake “low and slow” for roughly 2 1/2 – 3 hours.



Slap on some BBQ sauce if you feel compelled (although I didn’t in this pic)…



And that’s it.  🙂






Tender and delicious! 🙂



Truly ‘fall off the bone!’  Served with gooey cheesy stove-top Mac and Cheese – a recipe for another time.

I hope you enjoy this one as much as HE does.  OR SHE!  🙂

Preheat the oven to 275° while letting the ribs come to room temperature for 20 minutes.

Coat both sides heavily in BBQ rub using about 6-8 tablespoons total.  You can use the recipe above for a ‘Spicy Smoky Sweet BBQ Rub,’ or a variety of your own BBQ rub (it’s fun to experiment!), or even the local store bought kind.  The trick is to use a lot of rub!

Loosely wrap the ribs in foil making sure to tightly seal shut any openings.  Repeat with a second layer of foil.  Place on a baking sheet and bake for 2 1/2-3 hours.

{Optional} At the end of the baking time remove the ribs from the oven, remove the foil, and brush with BBQ sauce.  Put them back in the oven on broil for an additional 5 minutes.  Remove from oven.

Let them rest under a foil tent for 10 minutes before serving.  Serve with stove-top Mac and Cheese or salad and garlic bread.

If served with sides this will feed 3-4 adults.
