My Back Ribs

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Chef at Heart

These are so tender that when I make them (even for company), I only put out a fork; no knife as it is absolutely not necessary

try also with apple slices and apple juice instead of water - plus i sprinkle brown sugar on the moist warm ribs before grilling - it gives them a nice glaze - then i add the bbq sauce just before removing from the heat

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 907.18 g back ribs
  • 1 large lemon, sliced thinly to place over the ribs
  • 44.37 ml seasoning salt
  • water
  • 177.44 ml barbecue sauce, for basting, your favourite, you may want to use less (or more)


  1. Rub the ribs with seasoned salt (or your favorite spice) on all sides.
  2. Place in long casserole meat side down and place lemon on top (evenly spaced – not overlapping).
  3. Fill casserole with about an inch of water.
  4. Cover with tin foil and bake at 325 degrees for about 2 hours periodically checking to make sure there is enough water and that they are not falling off the bone to the extent that they cannot go on the BBQ.
  5. Baste with your favorite BBQ sauce and grill on your BBQ for about 5 minutes per side.
  6. Serve (with plenty of napkins) but no knife.
