  • 1 rack of baby back ribs or St. Louis ribs (depending on what you like, any one of them is fine)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • Smoked paprika (or regular paprika is fine!)
  • About 1 cup dark brown sugar


  • Start by preheating the oven to 275 degrees F.
  • Rinse the ribs and pat them dry with paper towels. Take your salt and pepper and sprinkle them onto both sides of the ribs.
  • The same goes for smoked paprika. If you don’t have smoked paprika, regular paprika will work fine. It works the same, but the smoke paprika taste a bit better than the regular ones.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar on the meaty side of the ribs, and gently spread it with your hand.
  • Wrap the whole ribs with heavy-duty aluminum foil and wrapped it twice with the aluminum foil. If you don’t have heavy duty aluminum foil, you can use the regular ones, but you have to wrapped it more.
  • Place the ribs, meaty side down, onto a sheet pan and into your 275-degree oven for two and a half hours. Then pull the sheet out and let it rest for one hour. Do not open it yet until it has rested for an hour!
  • After an hour, you can open up the foil packet and spoon some of the liquid back onto the ribs.
  • Now you are ready to eat!
  • If no one is ready to eat you can always reheat them in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 10 to 15 minutes if they have cooled. Or, you can place them under the broiler for about five minutes. However, it’s better to eat it fresh.

The baby ribs goes well with some shells n’ cheese and a ramen cabbage salad. It also goes great with a tossed salad and some crusty bread to soak up the juices left on your plate. Whatever side dishes you like, it probably goes great with anything.

When you do the baby back ribs instead of St Louis ribs, the meat is more of that “fall off the bone” variety.

Bon appetite!
