This is the way I always prepare my BBQ ribs. They result in fall off the bone tender ribs, and they are always a hit. The spices listed are what I submitted for this recipe, however I probably never use the same thing twice. Play around with those ingredients you enjoy the most. Prep time includes marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix brown sugar, garlic powder, and cayenne together in bowl.
  2. Add salt and pepper if you wish.
  3. Rub spice mixture onto ribs, both sides.
  4. Wrap ribs in aluminum foil, using two sheets of foil.
  5. Place ribs in fridge for at least 24 hours.
  6. Remove ribs when ready to prepare and place in oven on warm.
  7. (My oven goes from warm to 250°F, so I say place on warm, if your oven does have temps. lower than 250°F, I would suggest 200°F Bake ribs on warm for at least 4 hours, up to 6 hours.
  8. Remove ribs, and let them sit in foil, allowing them to cool to almost room temperature.
  9. Place ribs on hot fire, and baste with your favorite sauce.
  10. Let ribs cook on grill for approx 15 minutes or until hot.
  11. Remove ribs and let them rest for approx 10 minutes before serving.

I prepared these ribs last weekend for some out of town guests. I wanted to try something a bit different from my usual recipe and did not want to be in the kitchen all day. These ribs were extremly easy to make with ingredients readily available. I tripled the recipe as I had 4 racks and they can out perfect. We basted the ribs the last 8 minutes with a sauce a friend sent me from Illinois.......fantastic! Thanks for posting Bratty!
