This recipe is the way to go for tender baby backs. I cooked in the oven for about two hours and fifteen minutes, then added more sauce and stuck them on the grill for the last 15 minutes to crisp them up a bit. Awesome recipe!

Who would believe that a recipe with only two ingredients could be so amazingly delicious??!! I love ribs and for years my husband would make them on the smoker or boil and bake them. Every so often they would be moist and tasty but it was hit or miss. These ribs were moist, flavorful and so easy to prepare it was ridiculous. The only thing I did extra was to slit the silver skin before adding the sauce so they wouldn't curl up. Thanks so much for posting this recipe Brenda. Wish I had seen this years ago.

This was the first time I have cooked ribs at home, and this was the easiest recipe ever!! I used Sweet baby Rays BBQ sauce, and let them sit over night. Cooked them 2hr 45min and they fell off the bone! One tip would be to make sure you put them on something so when the juices come boiling out, you have something besides the bottom of the oven to catch them.
