BBQ Baby Back Ribs

When my mom and aunt were here for our shower a few weeks ago, we finished baby girl's nursery. It is just perfect! I can't wait to bring her home soon and rock her in that chair. We worked so hard to finish the room and I couldn't be more proud of it. Thank you to all who gave generously to us over the past few months. The majority of what you see here are gifts from friends and family. As I enter what could be my last week of pregnancy with her, I am so thankful for our friends and family who have supported us the past 9.5 months. It really is amazing to see the love the outpours from so many when you are expecting. It is like nothing I have ever experienced, thank you again!

I have had some time on my hands during these past few weeks, waiting... And I have caught the Rachel Ray show a few times. These ribs were on her show and I was so excited to try them. Jeffrey flipped over them and they were SO easy! I always though making ribs was hard, but not these. They are such a great summer treat!

BBQ Baby Back Ribs
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp salt
1/2 Tbsp black pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 racks of baby back ribs
1 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 cup your favorite BBQ sauce
Mix together dry ingredients. 
 Dry ribs with a paper towel.
 Use your hands to smear the dry rub into the ribs on both sides. Set ribs in the fridge for at least 1 hour or up to overnight. I allowed mine to sit for 5 hours.
Preheat oven to 250. Remove ribs from fridge. If they are not already, put them in a roasting pan. Add 1 cup of chicken broth and 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar to the bottom of the pan.

 Cover tightly with foil. Bake for 2.5 hours.
 Remove from oven and pull ribs out of the pan. Heat your grill.
 Take the juice from the bottom of the pan of ribs and skim the fat off the top. Place juice in a saucepan and bring to boil, reduce by half.

 Once reduced, add your BBQ sauce to the pan and allow to come to a simmer before removing from heat.
 Place ribs on grill and baste with sauce. Grill for about 4-5 minutes per side.

 Mine were so tender they fell apart when I went to turn them on the grill. Serve with your extra sauce. Enjoy!

Great data for Belden said...

This was a great recipe. I soaked some cedar wood chips in a bucket during the day and when it came time to BBQ them, I put some cedar chips in to smoke out the ribs. They came out with a hint of cedar flavor as well. It was great!
