BBQ Baby Back Ribs #bbqrecipes #grillrecipes

As you all know by now I am pretty much a Grill Girl at heart. If it wasn’t so stinking hot all the time here in Texas I would grill every day. One of my favorite things to grill, besides pizza, isΒ Baby Back Ribs. There is just nothing like fall off the bone Grilled BBQ Baby Back Ribs, and believe me these ribs will fall off the bone before they even get to the grill. They are amazing, hence my name for them “The Ultimate BBQ Baby Back Ribs.”

The trick to making your Ribs fall off the bone is to bake them long and slow. {meaning at a low temperature for a long time} My mouth is literally watering as I’m talking about these. Once you taste them you will understand the extent of there deliciousness and why my mouth waters just talking about them. After you bake these things for a while, just throw them on the grill for a quick sear and slather on some {or alot if your me} of your favorite BBQ sauce and its chow time baby!

So … ready… go get you some Ribs and grill those babies up!

To get started, preheat oven to 325ΒΊ. One of my mom’s tricks when preparing ribs is to remove the tendon or thin fat layer from the bottom side of the ribs. All you do is flip over the rib rack so you are looking at the bottom side {the side without the meat}. Go to one end of the rib rack and pull on the slimy white part. It should peel right off in one swipe.

Once you have removed this part from all 3 full racks, set them aside and prepare the spice rub. In a small bowl, mix 1 T. of garlic powder, 1 T. of paprika, 1 tsp. of chili powder, 1 tsp. of cinnamon, 1 tsp. of salt, and 1 tsp. of pepper.

Next, rub this spice blend on the top side of each rack and place racks in two 13×9 baking dishes. {I had to cut my racks to make them fit}

Next, peel, halve, and quarter {cut into 4th’s} 1 large sweet onion. Then peel 6 garlic garlic cloves, leave whole. Evenly spread the onion quarters and garlic cloves between the two baking dishes, placing the onions and garlic cloves on top of or underneath the racks of ribs.

Lastly, add a 1/2″ of water to the bottom of each baking to dish. Completely cover each dish with aluminum foil. Place in oven and bake for 3 hours. {thats right.. you heard me… long and slow baby!}
