Baby Back Ribs, Inspired by LongHorn Steakhouse
Baby back ribs slow-roasted for four hours for flavor and fall-off-the-bone tenderness, then fire-grilled and basted with our house-made BBQ sauce.
· 2 racks of baby back ribs
· 2 tablespoons of canola oil 
· 2 cups of BBQ sauce of your choice
· 2 tablespoons of salt
· 2 tablespoons of pepper
· 1 tablespoon of granulated garlic powder
· 1 tablespoon of granulated onion powder
· You can find prepared and cut racks of ribs at your local butcher or grocery store. If you have a full rack of ribs, we suggest you cut them in half if you're cooking in an oven in your home kitchen or on a typical gas grill.
· Season ribs with salt, pepper, granulated onion powder and granulated garlic powder. 
· Lay ribs meat-side down on a baking sheet with an elevated edge. Cover the sheet pan completely in aluminum foil.
· Bake in 325-degree oven for approx. 2 ½ hours or until meat is tender enough to be pulled from the bone.
· Chill the baby back ribs in the refrigerator for about one hour so that the meat doesn't fall apart. 
· Apply canola oil to char-grill and heat to medium-high.
· Place ribs on grill meat-side up and baste with BBQ sauce.
· Grill for approx. 3 minutes.
· Flip so meat-side is down, and grill for 3 minutes. Apply BBQ sauce to the back of the ribs.
· Grill ribs until BBQ sauce has started to caramelize and meat has started to get crisp edges.
· Let ribs rest for 5 minutes then brush with BBQ sauce before cutting them into 1 and 2-bone pieces. Serve with remaining BBQ sauce on the side for dipping.
Recipe serves four.
