Oven baked ribs…

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
  • foil





  1. Preheat the oven at 300F (150C).
  2. Coat your ribs with the dry rub you’ve purchased or made.
  3. Wrap your ribs with foil covering all of your ribs, like creating a pouch for them.
  4. Place on a baking tray and leave in the oven for 3 hours.
  5. After 3 hours have passed, take your ribs out and uncover.  Brush the ribs with BBQ sauce on all sides.
  6. Change the oven to the broil setting and broil the ribs for another hour.
  7. 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.
