I used to think making ribs was a daunting process that should be left to the real professionals and enthusiasts out there. I just couldn’t imagine making fork-tender, mouth-watering ribs without more effort than it was worth. These BBQ pork ribs are so simple and easy to make, it’s a bit silly how long I waited to try!
It’s true these are done in the oven, but because it’s such low temperature, I don’t get any extra heat in the house on these hot Texas days. That’s really important for me. I hate having to compensate with the air conditioner when I’m making dinner.
These fall-off-the-bone ribs are coated with rub, then go in the oven low and slow for 4 hours. They are finished off on the grill with a swipe of barbecue sauce for that perfect grilled flavor. You are going love being the envy of all your neighbors at the backyard BBQ this year with these delicious ribs!
BBQ Pork Ribs
- 1 rack pork ribs
- Favorite rub
- Favorite BBQ sauce
- Cover the ribs completely with your favorite rib rub. (Rudy’s -the restaurant- makes an outstanding rub that I put on absolutely everything.)
- Wrap the ribs in aluminum foil and allow to come to room temperature for 30 minutes. Set the oven to 225 degrees and put the ribs on the middle rack for 4 hours.
- Heat the grill.
- Remove the ribs from the oven and brush your favorite BBQ sauce on the top and bottom (again, I use Rudy’s).
- Grill the ribs about 5 minutes, or until hot. Serve.
