  • 4 pounds Beef Ribs
  • Rub of your choice


  • Turn ribs over and remove the membrane also known as silver skin. Use a spoon to get under the membrane.
  • Rub ribs with your favorite rub. I like to make sure there is salt and pepper in my rub.
  • Wrap tightly with aluminum foil. Do this twice.
  • Put a pan with foil on bottom shelf to catch juices.
  • Bake for 3 to 4 hours (longer if you wish) at 300 degrees F. (150 C., Gas 2).


If you want to use barbecue sauce, uncover the ribs at 3 hours. If they are tender enough for you, place in pan with your sauce and bake for 20 to 30 minutes more.
