Our Baby Back Ribs

"These are very tender when done. I use my own barbecue sauce and if you want more than 1 rack, you can easily lay more ribs on the pan. While they bake go do something else. Enjoy the day!"

    Ribs, water and your favorite BBQ sauce it was just that easy. I put them on top of heavy duty aluminum foil, folded down the top, sealed one side and then poured the water in the other and sealed that end. At then end of 2.5 hours I unfolding one end and lift up the package to drain off the liquid. Then folded back the foil away from the ribs and poured Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce on them. Baked for 30 minutes more and they were perfect!! Clean up was a cinch since I cooked them in the foil. Our kids really liked this recipe. I'll be making these again.

    Yum! I used Kraft Hickory Smoked BBQ sauce and these ribs were flavorful and so tender. It can't really get any easier than this. Thanks WiGal for being such a great host for PAC Spring 2010!

    I've made this many times, one thing I do is when you change the temperature to 375d drain off the liquid while the oven heats up. Then put ribs back in the oven so some of the moisture evaporates, then during final 15minutes apply the barbecue sauce (Sweet Baby Rays is my favorite). This makes the sauce nice and warm and starts to glaze the meat. Another variation I've tried is added some spices to the water at the start. I recall watching and Elton Brown episode were he used the drippings to make a home made barbecue sauce but I haven't attempted that yet.

    If you want tender falling off the bone ribs, this is the way you do it!!! I used a long foil pan, added the ribs and water, then I seasoned the ribs with salt, pepper and garlic powder. I covered with foil and let them bake for 3 hours. I then moved them to the grill and sauced them on the BBQ. Served with baked potato and grilled corn on the cob for a quick no fuss meal or cleanup. For the sauce I used Recipe #249976. Thanks for sharing WiGal. Made for PRMR.
