“I came up with a delicious, fast, and easy way to cook ribs with just an oven and a grill in just over 2 hours. They are surprisingly tender and just about fall off the bone.”
2hrs 10mins
3 racks

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 baby back rib racks, about 4 lbs each
  • steak seasoning, of choice
  • barbecue sauce, of choice


  1. Turn broiler on high and arrange top rack to just above center of oven. Allow at least 5 minutes for broiler to heat up.
  2. Place ribs in broiler safe cookware, fat side up, uncovered. Season lightly with steak seasoning.
  3. Place under broiler for 20 minutes. Flip over and repeat for 20 more minutes.
  4. Remove ribs and turn oven to 350. Cover tightly with foil 2 or 3 layer. No holes please!
  5. Place covered ribs in oven for 1hr 20 minute.
  6. 20 minutes before done it is time to ignite the charcoal. Allow to just grey over. Spread evenly.
  7. Remove ribs from oven, season liberaly with seasoning, add thin layer of bbq sauce.
  8. Throw on hot grill 6-8 inches from heat on bbq side. Season other side while on grill. Add bbq sauce to other side just before turning, about 5 minutes or till crispy/cooked to your liking. I like mine charred a bit.
  9. When 2nd side is done to your liking just pull off grill and allow to set for 5 to 10 minutes.
