My husband has recently become a BBQ junkie. It all started with a local place in my hometown, Roy's Pit BBQ. It is insanely addicting and I think it is at least 95% of the reason he was so agreeable to having our wedding in my hometown.
So, since right now Sunday is football day in our house, I decided to make some game day food. These are quick and easy homemade ribs done in the oven with all of the flavor of a fancy smoker.
Oven Hickory Smoke Ribs
- 4 lbs Pork Ribs
- Hickory Liquid Smoke
- 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
- 2 tsp Salt
- 2 cups Hickory BBQ Sauce
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Remove the tough membrane that covers the bony side of the ribs.
Brush both sides of the meat liberally with Hickory Liquid Smoke.
This is the cheater way of getting that smoke flavor.
Mix the brown sugar, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt together.
Rub both sides of the ribs liberally with the dry rub.
Place the ribs, meaty side down, on a baking sheet lined with foil. Cover the ribs with another sheet of foil and tightly crimp the edges.
Bake at 300 degrees for 2 hours. Remove the ribs from the oven and turn on the broiler.
Cut ribs into portions of 2 and brush BBQ sauce on one side. Put under the broiler for 6 minutes.
Remove from the over, flip, sauce the other side, and put back under the broiler for another 6 minutes.
