Baby Back Ribs


1 rack of pork baby back ribs, cut in to two sections

1 onion, sliced 1-2 green bell peppers, sliced ½ tablespoon paprika

½ tablespoon onion powder

½ tablespoon garlic powder

Salt and pepper

1 ½ cups barbeque sauce


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Make spice rub by mixing paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub over ribs.

Line a 9×13 baking dish with foil, with enough hanging over to be able to seal up over the ribs. I lay one long piece the length of the dish, and then two additional pieces front to back with plenty of overhang on both ends.

Lay the ribs in the pan, add onions and peppers on top, then pour barbeque sauce over all of it. Seal up the foil packet. Cook for 3-4 hours or until the ribs are cooked through.
