BBQ Spare Ribs

This BBQ Spare Ribs recipe was my first attempt at ever doing ribs myself, and to be quite honest, I was nervous I’d mess it up. It turned out WONDERFUL, however, and definitely got two thumbs up from Hubby, and myself!

This post is a tribute to my amazing, wonderful and crazy Hubby ‘Flash’. This Father’s Day I was thinking of all the things he does for our family, all his sacrifices for us, and just feel like I could never repay him in a million years. I’ve made it a goal to better show my appreciation year-round, to remind him more often than just on Father’s Day. So here’s me shouting to the world: I LOVE YOU HUBBY!!!


BBQ Spare Ribs


4 lbs. rack of Pork Spare Ribs
1/8 cup ground black pepper
⅓ cup paprika
⅓ cup sugar
1 tablespoon salt
Tangy BBQ Sauce

Preheat oven to 250 Degrees. Spray a rimmed baking or roasting pan. Put ribs in the pan and pierce meaty parts with a fork.

In a small bowl, mix the Pepper, Paprika, Sugar and Salt. Rub generously on both sides of the ribs.

Wrap the ribs tightly with foil. Bake for about 2 1/2 hours.

Pull back the foil, and use a basting brush to rub the Tangy BBQ Sauce all over the ribs. Reserve a bit for dipping, if desired. **Recover the ribs with the foil and bake for another hour.

Enjoy, with lots and lots of napkins or wet wipes!!!

**If grilling, this is where you would finish the cooking on your grill.
