This recipe takes literally five minutes to prepare. But what emerges from the oven — a juice-filled package of falling-off-the-bone baby back ribs, perfectly crisped on the exterior — tastes like a day’s worth of work toiling over a coal-filled bbq pit. Sweet. Smokey. Salty. Delicious.

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
Step 2
Rinse off the Pork Baby Back Ribs (1 rack) and pat dry. Liberally coat the ribs with Kosher Salt (to taste) , Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) and Smoked Paprika (to taste) . Pack on Brown Sugar (1 cup) .
Step 3
Lay out two sheets of foil slightly overlapping. Place ribs on top and close foil on all sides. Repeat two more times so that the ribs are covered in three good layers of foil.
Step 4
Place ribs on a sheet tray and place in the oven for 2 1/2 hours. When placing the ribs on the tray, try to place them meaty side down. It’s not critical but it makes for a crisper exterior.
Step 5
Remove tray from the oven. Let sit for one hour. Do not open the pouch during this hour.
Step 6
When ready to serve, reheat the ribs in the oven for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). This is assuming the ribs have not been refrigerated. Or, open the pouch, baste the ribs with the juices and place them under the broiler for five minutes.
Step 7
Serve immediately with cornbread and a simple salad for a yummy yummy meal.
