BBQ Ribs

This is one of those recipes that I printed and made right away.  In fact, I think we made it twice in 2 weeks.  It was the perfect Memorial Day meal and then we followed up again for friends.  The rub is really, really great and this recipe supports leftover rub.  I think the less sauce you use, the better.  The ribs spend 2 hours in the oven and less than 20 minutes on the grill. 

BBQ Ribs
from Oh Sweet Basil

1 big rack of Pork Baby Back ribs, membrane taken off the underside

Dry Rub:
1/4 cup salt
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp thyme
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 pinch of nutmeg

Combine the seasoning ingredients and you can store them in a mason jar.  Heat oven to 350F.  Rub both sides of the ribs with the seasonings.  Wrap the rack between 2 pieces of foil, until they are completely sealed shut.  Bake on a cookie sheet for 2 hours for baby back ribs and 3 hours for spare ribs.  Carefully remove from the oven and preheat grill to high heat.  Remove the ribs from the foil and set straight on the grill.  Grill for 6-9 minutes, turning and basting with barbecue sauce.  Remove from grill, let rest 2 minutes on a cutting board and serve.
