Dry Rub:

  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper



  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. For the dry rub, mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.

  3. Rub all over both sides of the ribs. Lay ribs in a large roasting pan (cut in half if you need to, to make them fit). Add the water and cover the whole pan tightly in foil.

  4. Bake 1 & 1/2 hours, until meat is very tender. Check occasionally that the water has not evaporated away, as this can burn your ribs.

  5. Preheat grill or broiler. Grill or broil 6 to 8 minutes, watching carefully so that they don't burn. You can brush some of the BBQ sauce on before grilling or after, that's up to you.
