Given that we are rarely (if ever) afforded a grill in the apartments we’re provided in this overseas basketball life, ovens must suffice when cooking meat (e.g. steaks, and in this post, ribs). Because of this, I was always a little weary of cooking ribs for fear that they would not turn out how my Dad’s always do: juicy, tender, and fall off the bone nicely. Well, I took the plunge recently and I was so pleasantly surprised. They turned out just like my Dad’s.
- A rack of ribs (or as many that is fitting for the amount of mouths you’re feeding)
- dry rub (you can purchase a dry rub readily at the store in the seasonings aisle or create your own using salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, etc)
- BBQ sauce of choice
- baking tray
- Preheat the oven at 300F (150C).
- Coat your ribs with the dry rub you’ve purchased or made.
- Wrap your ribs with foil covering all of your ribs, like creating a pouch for them.
- Place on a baking tray and leave in the oven for 3 hours.
- After 3 hours have passed, take your ribs out and uncover. Brush the ribs with BBQ sauce on all sides.
- Change the oven to the broil setting and broil the ribs for another hour.
- With 15 min left of your hour broiling time, brush the ribs with more BBQ sauce and place back into the oven for the last 15 minutes.
