This rib rub comes from a foodie friend of mine, Rory (baby Daisi & Rory seen below) and it is perfection.

 

Even if you don’t have a grill (I don’t), you can use this rub to make the best barbecue ribs ever. It’s as easy as combining ingredients you likely already have in your spice rack, getting your hands a little dirty rubbing it onto the ribs, then baking low and slow for hours. Set it and forget it! (I really hope that phrase isn’t trademarked, or copyrighted or whatever.)

This recipe yields approximately 1 cup of the rub, enough for 2 slabs of baby back ribs or 1 slab of spare ribs, which will feed approximately 4-6 people (depending on who your people are).

Combine the following spices in a bowl and whisk together. Or put them in a bowl with a lid and shake.

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne

Just look at the rich, beautiful colors.

Save any leftover rub you might have for next time or for the BBQ Baked Beans recipe I’ll be sharing tomorrow. {UPDATE: Slow-Cooker BBQ Baked Beans Recipe} So like I said, rub this spice mixture all over the ribs… front, back, sides, and again. ALL OVER.

Cover them with foil and refrigerate them overnight or as long as possible, letting all the flavors marinate. When you’re ready, set the oven to 225° and cook the ribs (covered with foil) low and slow for 7-8 hours.

About an hour before you’re ready to serve them, take them out and slather them with your favorite barbecue sauce. I highly recommend Sweet Spirit of Oklahoma. It has outranked Head Country in my book!

Now simply either (1) place the ribs back in the oven (uncovered) for thirty minutes to an hour or (2) grill them over medium heat, to caramelize the sauce and seal in the flavor.

Serve immediately. The meat just falls off the bone, so watch out when trying to cut them! These are addicting and I promise you, you’ll want to make them all summer (and fall and winter) long. Thanks Rory!
