Mother Nature fooled me today. It is May and it raining on the West Coast. I don't remember it ever raining this late in spring. Not that I mind because ultimately rain equates to a full lake. And a full lake equates to a fun summer. I didn't check the weather report. And not wanting to watch the news is a bad excuse when your phone will show the weather without the headlines. So it was on to Plan B. Growing up in the mountains, I remember my grandma making ribs in the winter. Not that snow or rain has ever stopped my family from bbqing but there were times that she would make them in the oven. This takes it to the next level.
This in no way is better than The Fireman's BBQ ribs. There is nothing like cooking them over a smokey fire but this is a great way if you do not have a BBQ.
1 package of baby back pork ribs
Your favorite seasoning
Season ribs with your favorite BBQ seasoning. I am using Santa Maria Style Susie Q
Stack the ribs on top of each other and wrap in foil. Bake at 400 degrees for an hour and half
Remove from the oven and place on a very hot grill pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with your favorite BBQ sauce and let caramelize.
I'm using a peach apricot sauce but good ole fashioned BBQ sauce would be fine. I am using the peach apricot sauce because The Ballplayer likes it. And frankly getting him to eat is a chore!
