  • 1 rack or more of pork baby back ribs
  • Basic barbecue rub
  • Ice cubes
  • Aluminum foil
  • Barbeque sauce


  • When preparing the ribs, cut each rack into three sections to individually wrap in foil. Be sure to remove the silver skin from the back of the ribs before sectioning if necessary.
  • This is where the ice cube comes into play. Add one ice cube to each rectangle of aluminum foil and place each rib section on top of the ice cube.
  • Season each rib section with dry rub and fold up each piece of aluminum foil into a tight packet. Place each packet on an aluminum foil covered rimmed cookie sheet.
  • Bake for three hours at 250°F. Then remove the ribs from the oven and let them sit for about a half an hour. Now the ribs are ready to go on the grill.
  • Remove the ribs from their foil packets and place on the grill at medium heat. Brush on your favorite barbecue sauce and grill for about 8-10 minutes flipping and reapplying barbecue sauce.
