BBQ recipe😍


  • 2 racks of baby back ribs
  • 2 cups BBQ sauce (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for heat)
  • Cooking oil (for grilling)


  1. Preheat your grill to medium heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper (if using). This will be your dry rub.
  3. Pat the racks of ribs dry with a paper towel. Remove the thin membrane from the back of the ribs by gently lifting it with a knife or your fingers and pulling it off.
  4. Generously coat both sides of the ribs with the dry rub, pressing it into the meat to ensure it sticks.
  5. Place the ribs on the grill, bone-side down. Cook for about 1.5 to 2 hours, or until the meat is tender, flipping the ribs occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  6. In the meantime, prepare your BBQ sauce. If using store-bought sauce, you can simply heat it in a saucepan over low heat. If making your own, combine your preferred ingredients and simmer the sauce on the stove until it thickens slightly.
  7. Brush the BBQ sauce onto the ribs during the last 10-15 minutes of cooking, turning and basting them every few minutes to build up a sticky glaze.
  8. Remove the ribs from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes. This will allow the juices to redistribute and make them easier to cut.
  9. Slice the racks of ribs into individual portions and serve them with additional BBQ sauce on the side.
  10. Enjoy your delicious soul food BBQ ribs!
