    rosie316's Note:

    When I can keep hubby from charring (burning) some ribs on the grill, I make them in the oven. These are so moist and tender, you will probably never want to grill them again. I've used many types of ribs... Baby Backs, Country Style (St. Louis)... etc. My favorite rub to use is Rustic Spice Rub (Bulk) and hubby loves my BBQ Sauce: Sweet and Spicy on them, but use whatever your family favs are of both. If you decide to use either of my rub or sauce recipes, please feel free to add a review to those recipes, as well. This recipe is just basically a technique to baking ribs indoors. I hope you enjoy these easy, no fuss ribs. *Note: Ribs, Rub & Sauce measurements are only estimates... I just buy them, rub them, sauce them and eat them! :)

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Pre-heat oven to 250* F.
    2. 2
      Season all sides of the ribs with your favorite rub.
    3. 3
      Using a 13x9x2 baking dish (or most likely a larger 15x11x2), place the ribs into the pan, do not over crowd. If using Baby Back slabs, place bone side facing up. If using individual Country Style (St. Louis), lay on their side.
    4. 4
      Cover the baking dish with foil and place on center rack of pre-heated oven. Bake for approximately 2 1/2 - 3 hours (depending on the size of the ribs you are using).
    5. 5
      Remove the ribs from oven and drain any grease from dish; reserving the foil for later use (waste not, want not). Flip the ribs over (meaty side up) and slather with your favorite BBQ sauce and return the dish to the oven (un-covered) for an additional 30 minutes.
    6. 6
      Once done, remove the ribs to a platter, loosely tent the platter with the reserved foil, and allow to rest for 10 minutes. (This step is important -- the resting period gives the ribs time to re-distribute their juices, just like a steak would).

      Oh Happy Day!!! These came out soooo good. I used spareribs which is a tender cut and roasting them on low temp guaranteed them to come out super moist. I used rosie316's "Rustic Spice Rub (Bulk)" and boy was it good. I used more than the suggested 3 tablespoons, as I found that it needed more to cover surface of meat. Tasted it when it came out of the oven and it was good even without the barbecue sauce. I baked it for 4 hours by accident (meant to let it bake for 3), but I was out weeding the garden to prep it for planting and didn't realize that 3 hours had passed. No fear though as the 4 hours was perfect. I used "Chipotles in Adobo BBQ Sauce" and the end result was FANTABULOUS. My husband who has never really been a big fan of ribs had 2 helpings. Thank you rosie316 for converting my hubby to liking ribs and thanks for sharing your recipe. Tagged it for PRMR.

      Rosie you did good girl!!! These ribs hit the spot! Meat was falling off the bone - so very tender and yet still juicy. I elected to NOT sauce mine, hubby did his. Either way these are the bomb! The instructions were nice and clear, easy to follow. Next time we don't want to brave Mother Nature, I now know how to get our rib fix! Thanks for an awesome recipe!

      This turned out well, but with some modifications. I used a roasting pan with the lid (no foil) with about 3.3lbs of side ribs. The total cook time was about 2 hours and 20 mins.
