  • 2 slabs of pork baby back ribs (about 2 lb. each)
  • 1 cup (240 g) bbq sauce (store bought or homemade), divided in ½

Dry Rub

  • 1 tbsp white granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin


  1. Mix all the dry rub ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Rinse both slabs of baby back ribs and dry well with paper towels. With the help of a small knife and dry paper towels, peel off the membrane that is attached to the back of the ribs. If you want you can also cut each slab into 3-4 portions.
  3. Place the ribs meat side down on baking sheets covered with non stick aluminum foil. (If you don’t have non stick aluminum foil, use regular aluminum foil and cover with cooking spray or regular oil). Sprinkle the back of the ribs with ½ of the rub, flip over and sprinkle the front side with the remaining dry rub. Cover the ribs with more non stick aluminum foil and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  4. Take the ribs out of the fridge and let them sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes and then bake them in a pre-heated over at 300ºF (150ºC) for 2 hours.
  5. Pre-heat grill on medium high heat for about 7-8 minutes and then take the ribs out of the oven. Once it’s hot oil the grill by brushing it with a paper towel soaked in vegetable, corn or canola oil.
  6. Place the ribs on the grill, meat side down and brush the back of the ribs with ½ of the bbq sauce. Cover the grill and cook for 7-8 minutes.
  7. Uncover the grill, flip the ribs over and brush the meaty side of the ribs with the remaining of the bbq sauce. Cover again and cook for another 7-8 minutes.
  8. Transfer the ribs to a cutting board and cut into portions. Serve immediately with the remaining bbq sauce.
