Ribs on metal platter with corn

Ribs are pretty much a love language to me. I have always been a rib person and always will be! They are one of my favorite spring and summer recipes, even though we love them all year long.

This BBQ Rib Recipe has been one I’ve been making for years, everyone absolutely loves it and we have always stuck with this one because it turns out perfectly every time!

We start these BBQ Ribs in the oven to bake them and get them nice and tender, then we finished them off on the grill with BBQ sauce caramelizing them and creating the perfect outside.

With this recipe you will never have to use another one ever. Trust me, when you taste it you will fall in love just like anyone that I have served these to before.

I always get asked for the recipe so it’s about time that I finally just share it with my lovely readers so you can enjoy something that we have always loved as well.

Some of my other favorite BBQ recipes we have on our site include BBQ Chicken Nachos, BBQ Chicken Pizza and Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Sliders.

Beer
BBQ sauce

Ingredients needed to make this BBQ Rib Recipe

HOW TO MAKE THIS BBQ RIB RECIPE:

  1. Preheat the oven to 250°F. Line a large sheet tray with foil, set aside.
  2. Rinse the ribs well making sure there are no bone shards. Pat them dry with a paper towel. Place it on the sheet tray with the foil. If desired, remove the membrane from the underside of the bones by using a pairing knife to gently pry the membrane up so you can get ahold of it. Using a paper towel then grab the membrane and pull it off. 
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, paprika, pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne. 
  4. Rub the ribs all over, top and bottom with the rub. Place another piece of foil on top, crimp the edges of the two pieces of foil all around the ribs so it forms a package.
  5. Place the ribs in the oven and pour ½ of the beer directly onto the sheet tray. Bake for an hour and a half and add the other half of the beer onto the sheet tray. Depending on how tender you want your ribs, start checking them at the 3 hour total mark. A fork should easily pierce the meat of the ribs. You do not want them to totally fall off the bone though because they will fall apart on the grill.
  6. Heat your grill on high and let it get very hot. Place the ribs meat side up onto the grill.
  7. Baste with the bbq sauce. Flip them over and let them char and caramelized. Baste the other side with bbq sauce. You do not want to leave them on too long, 20 minutes max because they may dry out. 
  8. Once the one side is caramelized and lightly charred turn it over again and let the bottom caramelize and char. 
  9. Cut the slab into individual ribs and serve, or serve as is!

HOW TO STORE:

This recipe needs to be refrigerated. To do this store in an airtight container or ziptop bag and they will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

To reheat you can throw them back on the grill with some more bbq sauce or heat them in the oven until the internal temperature reaches at least 165 degrees F.

These can also be frozen, again place in an airtight container or freezer bag and they should keep in the freezer for up to 2-3 months, let defrost in the refrigerator and reheat like stated above.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Use your favorite bbq sauce or homemade. I used Sweet Baby Ray’s in these photos. 
  • You do not have to use a beer, you can use plain water, apple juice, or lemon-lime soda.
  • They are very delicate so be careful while turning the ribs on the grill.
  • Removing the membrane tends to make the ribs more tender. Either way, they are still amazing.
  • The caramelized outside and char from the grill really set these ribs apart. You can also baste the ribs in bbq sauce once done baking and broil them until caramelized and charred. But, you will not get that smoky taste from the grill.
  • These can be frozen, see my tips above.

    I like the slow cook method you used and the added moisture from the beer is a great idea to keep the ribs from drying out and getting tough. I will pin this on my BBQ board for future reference. Thanks for sharing! D@TheShadyPorch
