Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours 30 minutes


  • 3 tbsp garlic seasoning salt
  • 4 tsp tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp Mrs. Dash Seasoning
  • 4 tbsp paprika
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 4 tbsp montreal steak seasoning
  • ½-¾ cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 racks baby back pork or pork spare ribs (Either type of rib works great with this recipe)
  • 1-2 cups bbq sauce


  1. To make the rub, dump all the spices and brown sugar into a small mixing bowl. Stir until well combined and set aside.

  2. Set baby back or spare ribs on a baking sheet. Pour vegetabel oil onto the ribs and rub all over on both sides. After the ribs are coated well with the oil, cover the ribs with the dry rub.

  3. Wrap the ribs in foil twice or you can use heavy duty foil and seal them up well. Place on a clean baking sheet and bake them in the oven at 325° for 2 hours.

  4. Some ovens vary so check the ribs to make sure they are tender enough after the two hours. If not put them back in for 15 more minutes. You want them fork tender but not falling off the bone.

  5. Take them out of the oven and remove them from the foil, then put them on a heated bbq grill and baste with your favorite bbq sacue. When the bbq sauce starts to carmelize a bit they are done! This usually takes about 5-10 minutes depending on your grill.
