Oven Cooked Ribs
These are in no way real smoked BBQ ribs, but if you just can't use the smoker, they're better than frozen pizza!
- 1 c brown sugar
- 3 T smoked paprika
- 1 ½ T garlic powder
- 1 ½ T onion powder
- 1 T kosher salt
- 1 t ground cumin
- spare ribs (St. Louis cut)
- BBQ sauce
Mix first six ingredients for rub.
Rinse ribs and dry. Trim excess fat. Apply rub (at least ¼ c per rack).
Take ribs out of cooler at ½ hour before cooking. Preheat oven to 225.
Wrap ribs in foil and place on sheet pan, bone side down. Cook for 3 hours.
Check for doneness (170 degress or it is easy to twist a rib bone).
Remove ribs from foil, lightly coat with BBQ sauce. Set oven to broil and carefully broil for 10 minutes or until sauce takes on some color.
