Melt in Your Mouth Amazing Baby Back Ribs

Yield 6 to 8 servings

These ribs are more than worth the wait!


Dry rub:



  1. Preheat your oven to 275F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the dry rub ingredients and mix them together well.
  3. Remove the membrane from the underside of the ribs and generously rub them with the dry rub until they're evenly coated on all sides. 
  4. Wrap the ribs in foil and allow them to marinate in the refrigerator for at least four hours, but overnight is best.
  5. Heat your grill to medium-high heat and grill each rack of ribs to char the meat for a little flavor, but also to sear in the juices, so about 5 minutes. 
  6. Pour the bourbon into the bottom of a large roasting pan and place the ribs on a roasting rack in a roasting pan. Cover it tightly with foil and bake the ribs for about 4 hours.
  7. Carefully remove the ribs from the roasting pan, unwrap the foil, and coat the ribs with your favorite barbecue sauce.
  8. Place them back on the roasting pan uncovered, and bake them for an additional 20 to 30 minutes to caramelize the barbecue sauce.
  9. Slice the rack of ribs into individual ribs or chunks of two or three. Serve them hot with extra barbecue sauce!
