Ribs: Baby back or spare ribs or my preference St Louis style.

Wrap these easy baked ribs tightly in aluminum foil which traps the air and helps them steam, which makes them so tender!

BBQ sauce: I like to use Kinders but you can use your favorite barbecue sauce or make a homemade bbq sauce.

Can these be made in advance? Yes, You can bake them and wrap them in aluminum foil until ready to serve. Then just bring them to room temperature and slather on the barbecue sauce and either broil them or throw them on the grill.
