• 2 racks of pork ribs (baby back or spare ribs)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for heat)
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce (your favorite brand or homemade)


  1. Preheat your grill or oven to 275°F (135°C).
  2. Prepare the ribs by removing the membrane from the back of the racks. This helps to tenderize the meat and allows the flavors to penetrate better.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper (if using). This will be your dry rub.
  4. Rub the dry rub mixture evenly over both sides of the ribs, pressing it into the meat.
  5. If using a grill, set it up for indirect heat by turning off one side of the burners or by using only charcoal on one side of the grill. If using an oven, place the ribs on a wire rack set inside a baking sheet.
  6. Place the ribs, meat-side up, on the indirect heat side of the grill or in the oven.
  7. Cook the ribs low and slow for about 3-4 hours, or until the meat is tender and starts to pull away from the bones. If using spare ribs, they may take slightly longer to cook.
  8. During the last 30 minutes of cooking, brush the ribs with barbecue sauce on both sides, allowing it to caramelize and create a sticky glaze.
  9. Remove the ribs from the grill or oven and let them rest for a few minutes.
  10. Cut the racks into individual ribs or larger portions and serve with additional barbecue sauce on the side.
  11. Enjoy the delicious and finger-licking Barbecue Ribs as a flavorful main dish, along with coleslaw, cornbread, or other favorite barbecue sides.
