Apple Glazed- BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Apple Glazed- BBQ Baby Back Ribs

These amazing sticky apple ribs are cooked slow in the oven, the finished on the grill.

Summer is here which means lots and lots of cookouts.  I love the smell of BBQ anything in the air.  There is just something so much fun about a bbq get together with family and friends.  One of our favorite things to bbq would be these amazing apple glazed ribs.  We just made them for Father’s Day for these fellas (it seems to have become tradition for that day) and definitely need to make them again soon.

I got this recipe from my mom because she is the master at these and has been making them for as long as I can remember, so thanks mama.

You know that these ribs are fall of the bone fantastic when the kids request them for their birthday dinner or every Sunday dinner like my 9 year old does.

Don’t those look amazing? I will have to update this post once I make them again because these are the only photos I got at Father’s Day of these because we were too busy stuffing our faces and enjoying each others company.

PIN FOR LATER


One thing I recommend doing before you start is to remove the membrane from the back of each of the racks. It really helps to get the dry rub in to the back of the meat.  Here is a link that shows how to do it.

These ribs will be cooked slow in the oven for hours and finished on the grill.  They are full of flavor and you will want to make them over and over again.

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. In a small bowl mix together 1/4 cup brown sugar, garlic salt, chile powder, salt, pepper, celery salt, cayenne, white pepper. Transfer 1 tablespoon of spice mixture to a medium bowl and whisk in apple cider, jelly, honey and remaining 1/4 cup of brown sugar.
  2. Pull the membrane off of the underside of ribs using a towel to grab the corner. On a rimmed baking sheet, rub the ribs with the remaining spice mix; bake with the meaty side up for 2 1/2 hours. After 2 1/2 hours, pull ribs out and pour cider mixture over the ribs and turn to coat. Tightly cover with foil and bake for 1 more hour.
  3. Light grill. Uncover ribs and brush with bbq sauce. Grill over medium heat turning and brushing until glazed-15 minutes. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut between bones and serve. Serve with extra bbq sauce for dipping.
