  • 2 racks of pork baby back ribs 🍖
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar 🍚
  • 1 tablespoon paprika 🌶️
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder 🧄
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder 🧅
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper 🧂
  • 1 teaspoon salt 🧂
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for a kick) 🌶️
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce (homemade or store-bought) 🍖🔥🍖


  1. Prepare the Ribs:
    • For a more tender texture, cut the thin membrane off the back of the ribs and remove it with a paper towel after loosening it with a knife.
  2. Create the Dry Rub:
    • Brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, salt, and cayenne pepper (if using) should all be combined in a small bowl. Your flavorful dry rub will be this.
  3. Rub the Ribs:
    • Rub the dry rub mixture generously over both sides of the ribs, ensuring they are evenly coated. Let the ribs sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to penetrate.
  4. Prepare the Smoker or Grill:
    • Set your grill or smoker to 225°F (107°C). To achieve a truly smoky flavor, set it up for indirect heat cooking with smoke wood chips.
  5. Smoke the Ribs:
    • Place the ribs bone-side down and away from the heat source on the grill or smoker. When the meat is tender and beginning to separate from the bones, allow them to smoke for 3–4 hours with the lid shut.
  6. Apply BBQ Sauce:
    • During the final 30 minutes of cooking, liberally brush the BBQ sauce over the smoked ribs. By doing this, the sauce will caramelize and turn into a delicious glaze.
  7. Rest and Slice:
    • After removing the ribs from the grill or smoker, give them some time to rest. Serve them with additional BBQ sauce on the side and slice them in between the bones.
  8. Enjoy the Classic BBQ Ribs:
    • Take a bite and enjoy the classic BBQ ribs’ smoky, tender, and finger-licking goodness. Serve with your preferred side dishes for a satisfying and full meal.

👉 Classic BBQ Ribs are a timeless favorite that brings together the irresistible combination of smoky flavors and tender meat, creating a memorable dining experience that will have everyone asking for seconds! 🔥🍖🔥
