  • Two And A Half Pound Rack Of Pork Ribs
  • Two Tablespoons Of Paprika
  • One Tablespoon Of Lemon
  • Pepper
  • One Teaspoon Of Ground Cumin
  • One Tablespoon Of Garlic Powder
  • One Tablespoon Of Onion Powder
  • One Tablespoon Of Brown Sugar
  • A Teaspoon And A Half Of Kosher Salt
  • Quarter Of A Cup Of Ketchup
  • Teaspoon Of Spicy Brown Mustard
  • Teaspoon Of Worcestershire Sauce
  • Tablespoon Of Honey/Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Of This Barbecue Sauce


1I will be using around a two and a half pound rack of pork ribs now what I’m doing next is removing the membrane or the silver skin from the back of the rack of ribs be sure not to skip this step you want to make sure you remove all of it and normally it comes off in one piece but this time I didn’t have such luck but either way you want to remove it because it’s not easy to chew on it once the ribs are baked and it will also prevent most of your seasoning and spices from getting into your meat.

2So after a quick rinse in cold water I’m going to Pat it dry now I am going to use two tablespoons of liquid smoke and I’m going to rub it into the rack of ribs I’m going to start with the back side first now that I’ve rubbed that all over the backside I am now going to liberally sprinkle my dry rub and in this dry rub I used two tablespoons of paprika one tablespoon of lemon pepper one teaspoon of ground cumin one tablespoon of garlic powder one tablespoon of onion powder one tablespoon of brown sugar and around a teaspoon and a half of kosher salt I’ll leave that up to you you might want to use more if you want it a little bit more salty.

3I think this is a good place to start once I’m done with the back side of the ribs I’m going to flip it out onto a lined sheet of aluminum foil and repeat the process. So now that I have seasoned my ribs I am now just going to tightly and close it in my lined aluminum foil and by the way I lined this with parchment paper you don’t have to do that but I just do that by habit and now I am going to bake it in a preheated oven at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for about two-and-a-half hours I’m going to then remove it from the foil cover it with my barbecue sauce.

4Then raise the oven temp to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes okay it has been 2 and a half hours so now what I’m going to do is basically remove the rack of ribs out of the aluminum foil place it on the baking sheet and I’m actually going to pour the juices in the pan as well and then I am going to slather it in barbecue sauce I will show you how I made my homemade barbecue sauce which is a very basic one but if you have a bottled store brand that you’d like to use.

5Use that that works just as well but I like to make mine from scratch with this recipe so here’s how I did it in a bowl I am going to add around a quarter of a cup of ketchup now as you notice I’m really not measuring this I normally eyeball this but a quarter cup is a good place to start. I’m also going to add around a teaspoon of spicy brown mustard, and next I will be adding around the teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce. Then I am going to add around a tablespoon of honey and if you do not have honey add some brown sugar that works just as well.

6Now I’m just going to give it a good mix and remember that dry rub that we made earlier I had some left over so I’m going to add around two teaspoons of the dry rub into this barbecue sauce and again this barbecue sauce recipe is a very basic one when I typically put together a barbecue sauce. I just follow the rule of ketchup as a base something salty something tangy and something sweet and again you can use your favorite store-bought brand or your favorite barbecue sauce recipe it works great but ultimately I’ll be using around 1/3 cup of this barbecue sauce and now what I’m going to do is just brush it all over the top and glaze the rack of ribs.

7So while i was saucing the ribs I was preheating my oven and now it is up to a 400 degree Fahrenheit temperature and I am going to go ahead and pop them into the oven for an additional 10 to 15 minutes just to allow the sauce to really bake into the ribs it has been 15 minutes and these ribs are done they look gorgeous I allowed them to rest for around 10 to 15 minutes and now just going to slice into them and serve.
