    Recipe courtesy Chris Lilly

    4 slabs pork loin back ribs

    First Stage Dry Rub:
    1/2 cup dark brown sugar
    1/2 cup paprika
    1/3 cup garlic salt
    2 tablespoons onion salt
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    1 tablespoon black pepper
    1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
    1 1/2 teaspoons white pepper
    1 teaspoon cumin

    Second Stage:
    1/2 cup apple juice per slab
    1/2 cup grape juice per slab

    Third Stage:
    3/4 cup First Stage rub
    1/4 cup brown sugar

    Finishing Glaze:
    1 1/2 cup Big Bob Gibson Championship Red Sauce or your favorite red sauce
    1/2 cup honey

    Raw Preparation: Place slab of ribs bone side down on table. Slide knife under the membrane and against the end bone to separate the 2. With a dry paper towel, grasp the edge of the thin membrane and pull. The entire membrane should separate from the rib.

    Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Combine First Stage rub and mix well. Generously apply rub onto the front and back sides of ribs. Gently pat to ensure that rub will adhere. Place ribs meat-side up on a broiler pan and bake for 2 1/4 hours.

    Remove ribs from oven. Place each rib meat-side down on its own doubled aluminum foil square. Foil should be large enough to completely wrap rib. Mix the Second Stage juices. Pour 1 cup of liquid over each rib. At the same time wrap and seal each rib tight. Return to the oven for 1 hour.

    Remove wrapped ribs from oven. Remove from foil and apply a medium coat of the Third Stage rub to the meat-side of the ribs. Place uncovered in the oven meat-side up for 30 minutes.

    Remove ribs from oven and increase oven temperature to 350 degrees. Brush finishing glaze on both sides of ribs. Place ribs in oven for 10 minutes, or until sauce caramelizes.


    Yield: 8 to 10 servings

    If you're lazy like me just find a rub you like....experiment. Dizzy Dust is popular. Same with a glaze. I go 50/50 Stubbs's and honey.

    I recently did one using Memphis BBQ Company's recipe and found that the rub was a nice, easy basic rub (like it on pulled pork too). 

    Recipe here at Food Network:  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/baby-back-ribs-recipe/index.html

    I know it's not Melissa Cookston's exact recipe that won her 2 Memphis in May championships in the past three years but it does produce a good result.
