My recipe for barbecued pork ribs, using Bulk KFC Original Recipe Seasoning (Copycat) for the seasoning rub, and KFC Honey BBQ Sauce (Copycat) for the sauce. Preparation is timely, but it's worth the wait.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. PREPARE Recipe #453973 for the SEASONING RUB.
  2. PREPARE Recipe #486192 for the BARBECUE SAUCE.
  3. PREHEAT oven to 300°F.
  4. RUB the SEASONING RUB mixture evenly over ribs (save any spare seasoning rub for another use).
  5. POUR one inch of apple juice (or water) into a roasting pan; WRAP ribs with foil and place into pan, foil-seam up; PLACE foil-wrapped ribs into roasting pan; BAKE between 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 hours (replenish liquid in pan as needed).
  6. REMOVE baked ribs from oven and pour off the fat.
  7. BASTE all sides of ribs with the BARBECUE SAUCE (Funnel extra untouched sauce into a plastic squeeze bottle or Ball canning jar then store refrigerated and capped).
  8. BARBECUE/GRILLING METHOD: PREHEAT grill to medium heat; SET grate four inches above coals/heat source; BRUSH grill grate with vegetable oil; PLACE ribs on grill; BASTE ribs with sauce occasionally; TURN ribs as needed; REMOVE ribs from grill when the sauce caramelizes and edges are lightly charred, without overcooking (about 15 minutes, or just slightly longer).
  9. BAKING METHOD: Preheat oven temp to 450°F Bake ribs unwrapped, top side down, for 8-10 minutes. SLIDE oven rack out carefully using oven mitts; TURN ribs over carefully with tongs; BASTE the top again with sauce; BAKE for a remainder of 8-10 minutes or until the sauce caramelizes and edges are lightly charred, without overcooking; ALLOW ribs to cool 10 minutes before serving.
  10. SERVE and enjoy.
