When spring arrives and the temperatures begin to rise, it’s time to get out the grill. And that means, it’s time for ribs! We love BBQ Baby Back Ribs. They are so tender and delicious.

The seasoning for these ribs are just right. A little savory spice. A little sweetness. And baking in the oven for 3-4 hours guarantees a tender, juicy meat. 

You may be tempted to eat them straight from the oven, but take the final step and grill them for that wonderful barbecue flavor seared right into the meat.

You may or may not want to brush them with your favorite barbecue sauce. We like Sweet Baby Rays. But they are pretty delicious even without the sauce.

Serve BBQ Baby Back Ribs with Kenny’s Cowboy Beans, Grandma’s Coleslaw and Sourdough Bread.
