Recipe by Mike Swieton
"This is an easy recipe for ribs which won't be tough, like smoked ribs, or fall off the bone, like braised ribs. These ribs are done the right way, and I've never had better ribs than this."

mesquite chips, soaked
1 (2 pound) slab
baby back pork ribs
freshly ground pepper
ancho chile powder
So easy! We have a gas grill, so we cooked them in the oven at 500 for 15 minutes, then on the grill for 15.
The wonderful aroma on these was enough to make your mouth water. These turned out tender but not quite as much as we wanted. We didn't really care much for the rub either. DH had an issue with the thyme. I read other reviewers had an issue with the salt, I used kosher salt. It was fine and not too salty at all. Thanks for a nice meal. We enjoyed trying out your recipe. :)
There's nothing like really good baby back ribs! The smell alone from the grill is enough to make your mouth water! No matter what kind of rub you use they're bound to be good. We don't put our ribs directly on the grill until the end. After the rub, we put some BBQ sauce on the bottom of some foil (to prevent sticking) and wrap the ribs in the foil then place the ribs on the grill and close the lid. Cook for 45 minutes turning the packet a couple of times.. Then we remove them from the foil and place them directly on the grill and baste them with the BBQ sauce for 5 minutes or until done.
These are some of the best baby back ribs I have ever tasted! I don't think baby backs should fall off the bone, and these do not. Save that for country style ribs.
I haven't made this recipe using this rub, but very similar. Mike's right - they are the best. The secret is to remove the membrane. (It's not easy, but well worth it!) Try pulling off with a paper towel. Also, I use a rub only and serve the sauce on the side. I use hickory wood.
This has become a family favorite. They are the easiest and best ribs I've ever made. I love that the meat DOESN'T
Placed ribs in refrig for several hours after using rub. Baked @ 300 for 2 hrs wrapped in foil, finished on gas grill with sweet baby rays, about 10-15 mins. First time making baby back ribs. Very good.
I never made ribs before and was nervous they wouldn't turn out right. This was easy and very tasty, and you didn't have to grill them for hours.
