Baby Back Ribs: Smoked And Grilled

  • 4 racks of baby back ribs
  • Salt, sugar and sweet paprika
  • Liquid smoke, optional
  • Your favorite barbecue sauce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the ribs into a roasting pan, trying to not overlap. Season the ribs on both sides lightly with the salt and sugar and heavily with the sweet paprika. Mix together four parts water to one part of liquid smoke and add to the pan. Make sure you have enough liquid in the pan to cover the ribs about half way. Cover the pan very tightly and bake for 2-1/2 hours.

After about 2 hours, preheat your grill. Remove ribs carefully from the pan. (Careful...they will be extremely tender.) Grill for about 15 minutes, turning often and basting often with the barbecue sauce. This will improve the color and texture.

  • Yields: 6-8 servings
