“I suppose you thought eating low carb meant giving up your favorite baby backs. Well, think again!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare ribs by removing membrane from the back of the ribs (use a paper towel to grab the edge and pull), then rinse ribs under cool water and pat dry.
  2. Place a sheet of plastic wrap larger than the rib piece on the counter and top with ribs.
  3. Take the rib rub and rub it into the meat on both sides using your fingers, trying to coat it as much as possible.
  4. Top the ribs with another sheet of plastic, wrapping it, then refrigerate ribs overnight.
  5. Remove ribs from refrigerator and allow the ribs to rise to room temp while the oven heats up to 250°F.
  6. Remove ribs from plastic and wrap in foil, placing the wrapped ribs on a large shallow baking sheet.
  7. Bake ribs for 3 hours, then remove from oven.
  8. Finish ribs on the grill, adding bbq sauce as soon as you put them on, and grilling for 6-8 minutes or until sauce sets.
