Oven Baked Bbq Ribs

Oven-baked BBQ ribs are a delicious and tender dish that’s perfect for any barbecue or gathering. Here’s a simple recipe to make them at home:


  • – 2 racks of pork baby back ribs (about 4-5 pounds total)
  • – 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • – 1 tablespoon paprika
  • – 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • – 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • – 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • – 1 teaspoon cumin
  • – 1 teaspoon salt
  • – 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • – 1 cup barbecue sauce (homemade or store-bought)


1. Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.

2. Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs: Using a small knife or your fingers, loosen the membrane on the back of the ribs and then grab it with a paper towel and pull it off. This will help the seasonings penetrate the meat and make the ribs more tender.

3. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cumin, salt, and black pepper to make the dry rub.

4. Rub the dry rub mixture all over the front and back of the ribs, coating them evenly. Place the ribs on the prepared baking sheet, meaty side up.

5. Cover the ribs tightly with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 2.5 to 3 hours, or until the meat is tender and starting to pull away from the bones.

6. Remove the foil from the ribs and brush them generously with barbecue sauce on both sides.

7. Increase the oven temperature to 400°F (200°C) and return the ribs to the oven, uncovered. Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the barbecue sauce is caramelized and sticky.

8. Remove the ribs from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

9. Serve the oven-baked BBQ ribs hot, with additional barbecue sauce on the side for dipping.

These oven-baked BBQ ribs are tender, flavorful, and perfect for any occasion. Serve them with your favorite sides, such as coleslaw, cornbread, baked beans, or potato salad, for a delicious and satisfying meal. Enjoy!
