BAR-B-Q RIBS (low and slow)

This will take between 3 and 4 hours and has a couple of steps. I am not a big hot spicy fan but this was just enough heat for me and well worth the time and effort.

Heat your oven to 250 degrees


2 slabs of baby back ribs , membrane from back removed(my butcher did this for me)


1/4 cup dark brown sugar

2 teaspoons garlic powder

4 teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon celery seed

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

In a small bowl , combine the dry rub ingredients and mix well. Keep one Tablespoon for liquid seasoning. Apply the rub over all the ribs, front and back. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place ribs meat-side up on pan. Cook for two hours


1/2 cup apple juice

1/4 cup apple jelly

1/4 cup honey (good quality)

1/4 cup dark brown sugar

1 Tablespoon saved dry rub

Mix all together and pour over ribs

I removed ribs from baking sheet and placed them meat-side down in a baking pan 13x9 inch. I poured the liquid seasoning over them and covered them with foil. Placed them back in the 250 degree oven for 1 hour.

1 cup Masterpiece Barbecue Sauce

Remove ribs from oven and liquid which will be thrown away, place them back on the baking sheet lined with new foil if you like. Cover both sides with barbecue sauce, place the ribs meat-side up on the baking sheet and put back in the oven for 15-20 minutes.ENJOY!


You may do this on a grill but you would use indirect heat( should still be at 250) and aluminum foil pans or doubled sheets of foil wraped tightly for the second step. Still wrap the pan with foil for the second step. You should have a covered grill for this.
