Finger Lickin’ Good Baby Back Ribs

We had ribs this weekend.  And, in a word, they were perfect.

Maybe it was a particularly good cut of meat, maybe it was the sauce (we had the very fortunate opportunity to review Stubb’s for the blog), or maybe it was the fact that it was one of the first really great grilling weekends of the season. Likely for all of these reasons, they were fall-off-the-bone, finger lickin’ good.  

You know, perfect.  Here’s how we did it and the varieties of Stubb’s sauce we used.

Finger Lickin’ Good Baby Back Ribs

2 Racks Baby Back Ribs
2 TBS Seasoning (Stubb’s BBQ Spice Rub)
1/2 C Basting Sauce (Stubb’s Moppin Sauce)
1/2 Cup BBQ Sauce (Stubb’s Hickory Burbon)

Remove membrane from ribs if necessary.  Rub seasonings into meat on both sides.  Place slabs in an aluminum pan and cover with foil.  Cook on LOW (about 270 degrees) for 3-4 hours.  Remove from oven and preheat grill to MED-LOW.  Baste rib racks with basting sauce (or BBQ sauce) and place on grill for about 10 minutes on each side, or until desired char has been achieved.  Return to aluminum pan, remove from heat, baste with BBQ sauce, and cover while allowing meat to rest for an additional 10 minutes.  Carefully cut into serving size portions (as meat will likely pull easily from bone).  Enjoy.   

Serves 4-6 Adults
