BBQ Pork Ribs in the OVEN

I love ordering BBQ pork ribs from the menu at BBQ joints claiming to have “the best there is”. Some are great, and some are just downright embarrassing. If you run a BBQ joint, you’d better get your ribs right!

I made it my personal quest to find the best method for cooking the ultimate fall-off-the-bone pork ribs. I’ve tried every method I could think of, from grilling, baking, to boiling. After all my experimentation, I believe I’ve come close to perfection, and pork ribs in the oven is the method I still believe to be the best.

Pork Ribs- The RULES:

Rule #1 – BBQ ribs may NOT be served dry. They must ALWAYS be smothered in BBQ sauce.
Rule #2 – BBQ ribs must fall from the bone with little to no effort. Anything less is not worth eating

The key to tender and juicy and super flavorful baked pork ribs is to make a foil “tent” and then to use the ribs as a shield to hold all of the flavor goodies beneath it. BBQ ribs in the oven is a slow and low technique that makes it pretty difficult to mess up.

You can burn ribs easily on the grill or in the smoker. (I know, cause I have done it.) The oven is a safe place for the meat to get happy. Slow and low baby, slow and low.
