Best Rib Recipes: BBQ Baked Pork Spareribs
- 1 rack pork spareribs
- ¼ cup pork rub (see recipe or use your favorite brand)
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 2 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 250°F (120°C) and arrange sheets of aluminum foil on a rimmed baking sheet to make a 'pouch'. Rinse the spareribs in cool water then pat them dry with paper towels.1 rack pork spareribs
- (Optional) For perfectly tender ribs, you'll want to remove the silverskin (membrane) on the underside (bone) side of the spareribs. Using a butter knife, slide under the thin membrane and lift, gently pulling the sheet of membrane up and off the fat layer on the underside of the ribs.
- Prepare enough aluminum foil to make a pouch around your pork spareribs. Use several sheets if needed, then place the ribs with the meat side facing up and season. Flip and season the bone side of your ribs as well. With the meat facing down, securely seal the aluminum foil pouch. *If you'd like to add the optional apple cider vinegar, use it to brush over the ribs before seasoning in this step.¼ cup pork rub, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- Place the sealed pouch with the ribs onto a baking sheet and cook for 2 hours, or until tender and completely cooked through. Remove from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 400°F (205°C).
- Allow the ribs to cool slightly so that you can handle the 'pouch' of aluminum foil. Carefully vent the pouch to release the steam, then open and discard any fat juices. Flip your ribs so that the meat is facing upward again.
- Combine the liquid smoke with the BBQ sauce then brush onto your spare ribs, covering all sides. Leave the foil open and the ribs with the meat facing upward, then return to the oven once it has reached 400°F (205°C).1 cup barbecue sauce, 2 teaspoon liquid smoke
- Cook for an additional 30-45 minutes, reapplying more sauce if desired. Remove from the oven when done, cut into individual ribs, and serve.
