Salt and black pepper to taste
1 Tbsp
Garlic powder
1 Tbsp
Onion powder
1 Tbsp
Dried oregano
1 tsp
Dried thyme
1 tsp
Cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
1/2 tsp
Barbecue sauce (store-bought or homemade)
1/2 cup


  • Tin foil
  • Baking sheet
  • Grill optional


Preheat your oven to 300°F.

Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. Pat the ribs dry with paper towels.

In a small bowl, mix salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, thyme, and cayenne pepper.

Rub the spice mixture evenly over the ribs, covering both sides.

Lay out a large piece of aluminum foil and place the seasoned ribs on it. Wrap the ribs tightly in the foil, creating a sealed packet. Place the foil-wrapped ribs on a baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 2 to 2.5 hours, or until the ribs are tender. Check for doneness by ensuring the meat easily pulls away from the bone.


If you want to add a smoky flavor and a nice char, you can finish the ribs on a preheated grill. Brush the ribs with barbecue sauce and grill for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with more sauce.

Once done, let the ribs rest for a few minutes before slicing between the bones. Serve with additional barbecue sauce on the side.
