BBQ Ribs with Simple Dry Rub


Servings: 4-6

Total Time: 3.5 hours



  • 4 lbs pork ribs
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder*
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder*
  • 2 cups Triple Crown Classic BBQ sauce


  1. Pre-heat oven to 275 degrees
  2. Peel off rib membrane
  3. Create rub by mixing onion and garlic powders
  4. Evenly coat ribs with dry rub
  5. Place two layers of foil on bottom of flat cooking tray – place ribs on foil
  6. Place two layers of foil on top of ribs – crimp foil around the sides of the ribs making a “package”
  7. Place on baking tray and leave in oven for 2 hours
  8. Remove tray from oven, peel top foil layer
  9. Flip ribs over to allow for even cooking and apply medium coating of BBQ sauce to both sides
  10. Re-wrap top layer of foil over ribs and replace in oven for another 30mins+ depending on rib thickness
  11. Remove from oven and apply fresh layer of sauce with serving


  • Foils wrapped around the ribs prevents the meat from drying out while cooking
  • Baby Back ribs are smaller than spare ribs and require less cook time
  • Meat should be tender and able to be easily removed from rib bones
  • We like to apply the last layer of sauce and replace in oven for 2-3 more minutes to allow the sauce to warm – can also preheat sauce in microwave/stove top over last few minutes of baking

** Add additional spices or quantity for dry rub preference
