Brown Sugar and BBQ Rack of Ribs

Brown Sugar BBQ Cooked Ribs

So I am just now realizing how many pork recipes we’ve been doing lately. What can I say…….it’s my favorite white meat!! To me chicken is the other white meat 😉

So one of the best things of having Alanna stay with us is that it’s ok to buy regular servings of food and there is just a little bit left over. So we were all at the grocery store kind of just wandering around and we saw a 5 lb rack of ribs on sale. I jumped on that soooooo fast!! I had been craving steaks but I will only eat those off the barbeque and we are sadly out of propane and haven’t had a chance to fill it back up. Also, with the winter coming on super fast it’s probably not worth it now.

But ribs, those you can just throw in the oven and they will come out juicy and perfect!!! So I just came up with this little recipe on the fly 🙂

Pork Rub:

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp garlic salt
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • Optional- crushed red pepper if want a little kick of spice!

Other ingredients:

  • 1 onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 2 cups KC Masterpiece Hickory Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce
  • 5 lbs rack of ribs

So here goes:

Line a backing sheet with tin foil. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Mix your rub together and really work it into both sides of the rack of ribs. I mean get it in there!! Give that meat a nice little brown sugar massage like you’re getting paid for it 😉 …..ok that was a little weird, but hopefully you get the point.

Next slice up your onion and green pepper and place half on top of the rack and half on the bottom to keep the ribs out of the juices. You can fill the bottom of the pan with 1 cup of beer or water to help the ribs be really moist. Cover pan tightly with tin foil. 


Put your ribs in the oven for 3 hours. Then drain the fat from the pan. Move all the veggies under the rack of ribs and liberally brush the BBQ sauce over the ribs. Place the ribs back in the oven for 30 minutes.

Let them cool just a little bit and then pile up the napkins and dig in!!!

I also just want to say a big THANK YOU to all of you that follow the blog and check out our fun recipes. We are just a few views away from 500 views and that is a really big deal for us!!! This blog has been so special to Levi and myself and is definitely the one hobby we’ve ever had that has staying power…..not only thanks to our love of food but also because we love sharing this with friends and family and the WORLD 🙂

I would love to hear any type of suggestions or favorites that you would like to share with everyone!
