For the Ribs:

  • 2 racks of baby back ribs
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 cup barbecue sauce (your favorite brand or homemade)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional, for a smoky flavor)


Prepare the Ribs:

  1. Preheat your oven to 275°F (135°C).
  2. Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. To do this, use a knife to gently lift one corner of the membrane, then grasp it with a paper towel and peel it off. This helps the ribs become more tender.
  3. Season both sides of the ribs generously with salt and black pepper.
  4. Rub the olive oil over the ribs to create a base for the seasoning.

Create the BBQ Sauce: 5. In a bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika (if using). Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.

Coat and Bake the Ribs: 6. Lay out two large sheets of aluminum foil, one for each rack of ribs.

  1. Place each rack of ribs on its own sheet of foil.
  2. Brush a generous amount of the BBQ sauce mixture onto the top side of each rack of ribs.
  3. Fold the foil over the ribs, creating a sealed packet. Make sure the ribs are tightly wrapped to trap in the steam and flavor.
  4. Place the foil-wrapped ribs on a baking sheet and transfer them to the preheated oven.
  5. Bake for 2.5 to 3 hours or until the ribs are tender and cooked through. They should easily pull apart with a fork.
  6. During the last 30 minutes of cooking, carefully open the foil packets and brush on more BBQ sauce to create a sticky, caramelized glaze.

Serve and Enjoy: 13. Remove the ribs from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes.

  1. Slice the ribs between the bones and serve them with extra BBQ sauce on the side.
  2. Enjoy the mouthwatering goodness of these Easy Oven BBQ Baked Ribs, and be prepared for the flavor explosion with every bite.

Cook’s Notes:

  • To add a smoky flavor, consider using smoked paprika in your BBQ sauce.
  • If you prefer spicier ribs, you can add a pinch of cayenne pepper or hot sauce to your BBQ sauce.
  • Keep an eye on the ribs during the last 30 minutes of cooking to ensure they don’t become overly charred. Adjust the oven temperature or foil as needed.
  • Serve these ribs with classic sides like coleslaw, baked beans, or cornbread for the ultimate BBQ feast.
  • Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated in the oven or on the grill for a delicious second meal.
