Sweet BBq Ribs

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp chili powder

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp ground pepper

  • 1 tsp dry mustard

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • Souse sweet BBq sauce

  • 5 lb (2.27 kg) pork baby back ribs



  • Step 1

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Set aside.

  • Step 2

On a work surface, use paper towels to peel away the white membrane (silverskin) on the back of the ribs. Place the ribs on a baking sheet and rub both sides generously with the spice rub. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.

  • Step 3 

With the rack in the middle position of the oven, preheat the oven to 325°F (170°C).

  • Step 4

Wrap the ribs, two racks at a time, in heavy-duty aluminium foil. Transfer to a baking sheet. Bake for about 2 hours, or until the meat is tender.

  • Step 4

Preheat the grill, setting the burners to medium. Oil the grate.

  • Step 5

Remove the ribs from the foil and grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, brushing with half of the barbecue sauce. Serve with the remaining sauce.
