Slow Cooked Baby Back Pork Ribs

Baby Back Pork Ribs are great for parties like the Super Bowl or to finish on the grill in the summer. The ribs themselves are not too expensive ($9-$15 per rack) and two racks will serve about 5-6 people.

If you set it up ahead of time like we did below then this dish is really easy to prepare and you won't waste any time the day of your event.

For dry rub ribs we usually do not use any sauce but if you want some extra kick then we suggest a vinegar type hot sauce like Franks Hot Sauce.


Place a large sheet of aluminium foil across a half sheet pan and place either one or two racks of baby back pork ribs.

Spice Rub:

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons dried smokey chilis

 Cover both sides of the ribs in the spice rub. The more the better.

Wrap up the ribs on the sheet pan with another piece of aluminium foil and place in the refrigerator overnight.

The next day bake for 3 hours at 250° F or 2 hours at 300° F.

For the last 15-20 minutes remove the top piece of foil and let brown.
