Memphis Style Ribs

Our preference is for smaller Baby Back Ribs, but they can be hard to find on Salt Spring Island so we usually just pick up regular back ribs. If you know your butcher, get him/her to cut the rack in half lengthwise for nice appetizer size portions of ribs.

1 rack pork back ribs (about 1 pound)
1 tbsp oil
4 tsp Monsoon Coast BBQ Rub
1 tsp salt
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4-1/2 cup BBQ sauce

Preheat oven to 300F. Remove membrane from back of ribs and rub both sides with vegetable oil.

Combine BBQ Rub, salt and sugar. Rub evenly into both sides of ribs.

Place on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet in a 300 degree oven. Cook 2.5 - 3 hours until tender. You can also grill on the BBQ using indirect heat.

If desired during the last 15 minutes of cooking, place over direct heat of the BBQ and brush with your favourite BBQ sauce.
