|Here are my BBQ Ribs dry rub seasoned on both sides.|
I used 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of paprika, 1/2 teaspoon chili pepper and a few shakes of onion salt and Johnny's Seasoning (From Costco....It's so Yummy added to just about anything!) Then I rubbed it on the raw ribs I had cut into 3 riblets. Don't forget to tear the membrane off the back of the ribs. It's easy to put a knife underneath to start it and then just grab it with a paper towel and it comes right off.

I really like the "New Orleans Style" ribs the very best. They are meatier than the "Baby back ribs" and I think a little longer. I would choose them every time in a restaurant and at the grocery store. They are very popular. I had one long $12.00 section of ribs. Cut up into 3 ribs each I had 5 slabs to total 15 little riblets. Only cut them individually when they are all done cooking or they will dry out.
I baked them at 325 degrees for 2 hours covered tightly with foil. Then I pulled them out of the oven and added a generous dose of BBQ sauce after 2 hours. I just poured it on each rib and rubbed it around. Then I baked it for another 30 or so minutes. They were tender and delicious. They could actually have been cooked another 20 to 30 minutes for "fall off the bone" tenderness.
We had a taste test on BBQ sauces one weekend at our cabin. Cattlemen's BBQ sauce was the winner. I get lots of compliments using it. It was my husband's favorite restaurant growing up. But Famous Daves was 2nd place and 3rd place was Sweet Baby Rays (It's very sweet and some people don't prefer that sweet taste as much). So choose one of those if you are lazy like me and just want a good rib sauce without having to make if from scratch.
|We also had cheesy potatoes.....yummy.....|
