You know, sometimes there is nothing more enjoyable and, in the end, more gratifying than spending an afternoon in the yard babysitting a low and slow rack of ribs smoking over an open flame. Then there is winter and the times during a busy week when you want to statisfy a craving for moist, succulent, sweet, sticky bone sucking goodness without all the time and work involved with cooking them on the grill. Here is a ridiculously easy way to cook baby backs in the oven with results that are amazingly good.
Easy Oven Roasted Ribs
1 rack baby back ribs
1 bottle of BBQ Sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
1/2 cup Whiskey
2 tablespoons BBQ dry rub
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Season ribs with dry rub on both sides. Combine BBQ sauce and whiskey. Place ribs on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet and slather with BBQ sauce. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and roast in the oven for 2 hours. Remove from oven, uncover and brush with additional BBQ sauce. Place ribs under the broiler, turning once, until brown and crusty.
