Internal Temperature for Tender Baby Back Ribs:

Pork is cooked through at 145 degrees but if you want the most tender ribs, I recommend cooking them to about 180- 190 degrees.

Can you make Baby Back Ribs in the Oven?

Baby Back Ribs can be made in the oven. You will miss out on the smoky flavor but it can be done. Wrap ribs tightly in foil and bake at 325 degrees for 2 about hours. 

Garlic and Herb Dry Rub For Ribs:

Dry rubs are the classic way to season ribs. Our garlic and herb rub is a simple rub with herbs and spices you are likely to have in your pantry. 

  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt

Mix well and keep in an airtight container. This is enough for 2 racks of ribs and can be doubled as needed. Can be made ahead and stored up to 3 months. 

Smoked Baby Back Ribs - whole, not sliced

A dry rub can provide all of the flavor your ribs will need when they are smoked. However, if you are looking for a great barbecue sauce to add to your ribs, we have some delicious barbecue sauce recipes.
