This recipe produces fall-off- the-bone tender ribs with a deep smokey flavor. The ribs are cooked in the oven but can be cooked ahead and finished on a barbeque grill.

"This recipe is great and it's simple. The sauce is the best I've ever tasted but I would not use that much oil in it. Cut the oil for the sauce to 1/4 cup. I also tried the sauce by putting 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 chili sauce. Both ways work well."


3 racks Pork baby back ribs; for a hungry crew use one rack per person
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1/2 cup Vinegar
Black pepper
2 cups Ketchup
1/2 cup Dark corn syrup
1/2 cup Molasses-dark
2 teaspoon Smoke flavoring
1/2 cup Vegtable oil

Original recipe makes 6



Remove ribs from packaging and using a sharp knife remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. This is a thin white membrane which once started can be peeled from the rib rack.

Preheat oven to 385 degrees

Place the ribs. meat side down, in a large baking or broiling pan so they do not over lap. Use two pans if needed. Note: If you cover th pan(s) with non-stick aluminum foil it will make clean up much easier.

Coat ribs with oil and vinegar. sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Turn ribs over so the meat side is up and coat with oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.

Place pan(s) in pre-heated oven uncovered and bake for 45 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees for an additional 45 minutes.

When ribs are brown and meat has started to pull away from the bones remove pan(s) from oven and carefully pour off grease from the pans. Coat ribs generously on both sides with the barbeque sauce and return to the oven for about 15 minutes or until barbeque sauce has begun to thicken and glazed.

Remove from oven and cut into pieces (3-4 ribs) and serve immediately.


Place the last five ingredients into a 1-1/2 quart sauce pan. Bring to a boil stirring occasionaly. Once sauce has boiled reduce heat and let simmer for about 15minutes stirring occasionally to avoid burning. Remove from heat and cover until needed to coat the ribs. Re-heat the remaining sauce and serve at the table with the ribs.

Timing was perfect on every step of this recipe. The result was a deliciously sweet BBQ sauce and fall off the bone, tender ribs. It's an easy to manage 2h45m.

So the way the ribs turned out was great however the sauce is subpar. Its missing a zip or kick it's pretty flavorless. I would recommend a different sauce.

Very easy to make! I wrapped them in foil for the first 2 hours, applied the sauce & wrapped in foil for 30 min & then opened them up for the last 15....sets the sauce nicely!
