Barbecue Ribs

I love anything barbecued.
Ribs, chicken and all sorts of things.
This is a rib recipe I have used for
years, and it's so good I don't
try any other rib recipes.

I fixed ribs for Joshua's birthday
one year when we were dating
and have kept the recipe ever since.

Mix together rub ingredients and sprinkle on
all sides of the ribs. Let set 2 hours.
I just had 30 minutes to spare and that worked fine.

After baking 1 hour at 300, drain off grease.
Top with your barbecue sauce and
bake at 350 for 1 hour more.

Savory and delicious.

 Run get your fork and dig in.

Barbecue Ribs

1 large rack of Pork Spare Ribs


1 Tbsp. salt
2 Tbsp. pepper
3 Tbsp. brown sugar

Mix together and rub on all sides of the the ribs.
Let set for 2 hours.

Place ribs in a large roasting pan and add 1 inch of water.
Cover and roast at 300 for 1 hour.
Drain the grease and top with the barbecue sauce

Barbecue Sauce
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. liquid smoke
1/4 tsp. red pepper
1 tsp. ground mustard
2 Tbsp. orange juice

Increase oven temperature to 350 and bake another hour.

The ribs should pull apart easily with a fork.
If they do not they need to be roasted longer.
Some ribs are thicker than others.
If you roast two racks of ribs in one
roaster you will need to roast them
1 hour longer on 350 and flip them half way.

Before I've used the large pack of ribs from Costco.
I would recommend them. These were small boneless
ones from IGA. If you get the large pack
of ribs from Costco, you will need to double this
recipe. There are two racks in each pack. 

I usually save a little barbecue sauce
to heat and top the ribs with when they
come out of the oven.

  1. Dear Hope, I love your blog. Today I spent my afternoon in front of my computer to look through all the great things you are cooking. I am one of your "followers" now and be pretty curious about all the things you are "charm" in future. I love your cookies. I found your blog over a picture one of your aunts published at Quiltville and I loved to see the pictures of your patchwork days in Febuary.
