Foolproof Baby Back Ribs Recipe!

Servings: 4 to 6

1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
salt & fresh ground pepper
3 lbs pork baby back ribs
1 cup barbecue sauce


1 Preheat gas grill for high heat.
2 In a small bowl, combine cumin, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder and salt and pepper Mix well.
3 Trim off the membrane sheath from the back of each rack.
4 You can do this by running a small, sharp knife between the membrane and snip or"shimmy" off the membrane as much as possible.
5 Don't skip this step because it prevents the ribs from being chewy.
6 Sprinkle or "throw" as much of the rub onto both sides of the ribs as desired.
7 Do not rub the spices in, because the ribs will turn too dark and spicy.
8 You may have some spices leftover, depending on your taste.
9 Place aluminum foil on lower rack to capture drippings and prevent flare-ups.
10 Brush grate with oil, and lay ribs on top rack of grill.
11 Reduce heat to low, shut grill, and leave undisturbed for 1 hour.
12 Do not lift lid at all during this time period!
13 After one hour check for doneness, depending on your grill you may need to continue cooking for another 10-15 minutes (our grill takes one hour exactly). Brush ribs with barbecue sauce and grill an additional few minutes until sauce is slightly absorbed and a little brown around the edges.
14 Serve ribs as whole rack or cut between bones and pile individual ribs on the platter.
