There are a few recipes that I make consistently. These ribs are one of them. Not only are they the easiest meal you will ever make, but they are so foolproof that even the boyfriend can make them ( and that is saying something). Top that with the amazing smoky flavor without the grill and you have a knock out meal. Serve with a baked potato or some oven fries and you will have a family pleasing meal.

Add spice rub:

Pour BBQ Sauce over:

Take out and place in baking sheet to broil:
