Barbecued Baby Back Ribs
10 Min

With our Barbecued Baby Back Ribs, the longer the ribs marinate, the better, so plan to coat the ribs with sauce the day before you want to cook 'em. That way, they're sure to be nice and tender and flavor-packed.

What You'll Need

  • 2 racks pork baby back ribs (about 4 pounds total)
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce, divided

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place each rack of ribs on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to completely wrap the ribs (see Note).
  2. Brush ribs with 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, covering completely, then wrap tightly in foil. Place on rimmed baking sheets and bake 1 hour, or until fork-tender.
  3. Carefully unwrap ribs and remove foil. Return ribs to baking sheets; brush with remaining 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, covering completely.
  4. Preheat broiler. Broil 5 minutes per side, or until sauce begins to brown. Cut into individual ribs, and serve.


To ensure the best flavor and most tender ribs, coat the ribs with barbecue sauce, wrap 'em in foil, and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Then oven roast them as directed.

I find that anything with tomato sauce 'eats' through alum foil if it touches the sauce.

I am not sure I would like ribs in bbq and foil for 24 hours. I have read years ago about not leaving anything in aluminum this is acid and/or tomato base. Wouldn't this be better marinating either in a glass bowl cover with plastic wrap or a gallon freezer bag?

In your recipe you cook your ribs at 375 Degrees for 1 hr., others have posted cooking at 325 Degrees for 2-2 1/2 hrs. Do you cook at a higher temp. for a shorter time because they have been marinated? Does cooking at a lower temp. for a longer time make the ribs tender if you don't marinate? I'm confused about the cooking temp. I boil my ribs for 45 mins. to an hr. when I don't have time to marinate. I place them on a cookie sheet, cover with sauce and foil, place in a 350 degree oven, and bake for 20-30 mins. They are fall off the bone tender too. Maybe I'm so used to baking things at 350 degrees I don't understand the changing of oven temps. Thank you.

I see beer and water mentioned a couple of times, but they are not listed in the ingredients. Beer....yes or no?

The beer is a suggestion from another user from the site. Our recipe does not call for beer. Thank you for your question!

Before cooking ribs, is it necessary to peel off the underneath tough cover first.?????

No. Just bake 2-2/12 hrs. @ 325f. Try using a rub also. Masterpiece has an good pork rub if you don't have one of your own.

Hey Texoma, what's your ratio of how much beer to water? Sounds like a great way to cook ribs!

finger lickin good

I have been looking for an easy recipe for fall of the bone ribs for a long time and finally found it !! I used our favorite store bought bbq sauce and these were the best I have ever tasted. They fell off the bone and the flavor was spectacular!! Have alot of napkins handy when you make these. Thank You Mr.Food :)

Mine are easier...make the pan fit the amount of ribs you want to cook. I cut my ribs into about every 4 ribs (they fit easier into a pan). Put the ribs in the pan with meaty side up and fill to cover with beer and water...the alcohol cooks out but it is there to tenderize. The cover and place in over on 325 for 2 1/2 hours. Then place on a cookie sheet or on the grill, cover with your favorite sauce and let them back about another 30 minutes. Everytime I have cooked these everyone wants the recipe...worked great this weekend on St Louis style ribs too...

You have no nutritional values on your recipes. Why.

Figure it out there are only 2 ingredients do we need to eat it for you as well

Has the Barbecue Sauce recipe been posted somewhere else ???
