Check out this Best Oven Baked BBQ Ribs Recipe!
Who doesn’t like soulful oven baked bbq ribs?! I absolutely love them, and I just happen to have the best recipe for southern style oven baked ribs that are simply to die for. I have recently been playing around in the kitchen, while hosting a few get togethers, and hunny- I came up with an amazing wet rub! I still like to use my dry barbecue rub occasionally, but I am currently stuck on this recipe. Like seriously- Every time that I make ribs with this wet rub, people go crazy! As mentioned on my instagram, someone actually asked me if I put “crack” in wet rub, because they said that the ribs were addicting!! LOL. I assure you, these ribs are crack-free, but be warned… Once you try this recipe, YOU will be addicted too!

Hey girl, I’ve got mine in the oven right now. Will let you know how they turn out.
Awesome. Let me know how the turn out for you!
Do you cover or uncover when you place the ribs back in the oven to broil?
Leave the ribs uncovered when you broil. XOXO
Love the wet rub! These look so delicious. Pinned. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Mary! Thanks so much for pinning!
Licking my fingers in anticipation of making these , mmmm !
Are these ” fall off the bone” tender? If not, how much longer should you cook them to get them to that point? Thank you
Yes, they are 🙂
Anitra Simpkins says
Made these today and I swear to God my family ate the whole pan !!! Thanks !!!!
Woohoo!!!! Glad that you enjoyed the recipe!
Oh my Rosie these ribs were so good. There were so good. I made these for mothers day 2017. I didn’t have apple cider vinegar, liquid smoke or red pepper flakes. I usereular mustard instead dry mustard and regularcsalt. I boil it on stove for hour than put in oven. I put in oven . these ribs were great. Thanks Rosie and happy mothers day. What are you cooking for mother day.
What barbecue sauce do you recommend?
Hi Catherine! There’s so many to choose from. Thats a hard one. I like hickory bbq sauces.
Thank you :o)
Oh my Rosie I made these ribs. There are declious I see why people asked if you put crack in it. There were great. I got st. Louis style ribs from Walmart I only used one package.
Next time I get two packs of ribs.
I am on a tight budget. I love it. I love your recipes you make simple sweet and easy to follow.
Hi Veronica! Yess! I love these ribs as well! Thanks so much for trying my recipe!
Rosie what size pan are you using . I used a cookie sheet from Walmart for $0.88 cents but it only could put one ribs not two . I only cooked one package of st. Louis style ribs. Next time I want to cook 2 packages like you did. I didn’t see where you mention the size of pan. these ribs were great I can’t wait to make it for 4th of July. I did with baked beans.
I have a pretty large cookie sheet. I don’t know the exact size of it. If needed you can use two 9×13 bake dishes.
Omg THE BEST DAMN RIBS ever!! Lol my son said make these for the 4th of July wheww!! The best ever I love love love love love love love love did I say love these ribs? lol they are amazing
LOL!!!! YASSSSSS!!! This is my favorite rib recipe! I love it too! Thanks for trying my recipe! XOXO
Rosie, I’m making these today. I forgot the dried mustard. Can I use reg mustard, or omit it all together?
For best results, follow the recipe 🙂
Broil on High or Low ?? Thanks.
Try low 🙂
Oh, girl, these are HEAVEN. Nuff said
Your spare ribs look good.I like to know do you put the sauce only on one side or both and do you turn it over and do the other side to broil?
Hi Sandra! You can put as much sauce on as you like. I just eyeball everything. No I didn’t broil each side, but you can if you’d like 🙂
Crystal Pearson says
Got mine in the oven now. Followed your recipe. Can’t wait to sink my teeth in. They smell so dang good!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!
Thank you for trying my recipe luv! XOXO
Hi Rosie! Your recipes are awesome! I’ve tried many, and they all are great! Did you season both sides of the ribs or just one side??
I seasoned both sides 🙂
Hi Rosie! Love your recipes. I plan on making these delicious looking ribs this weekend and would like to know if the seasoning needs to be on the front and back of ribs. For example 1 tbsp of vegetable oil on front and 1 on back. Sorry for the confusion and maybe I’m overthinking, but def don’t want to mess up this wonderful recipe. I can not wait to try them.
**Rosie I see in previous comment that you do season both sides, so please disregard previous question. Do you sauce both as well or just the meatier side that is up and shown in your video?
Sauce both sides.
Yvonne Barrow says
Can you season these ahead if time like let marinate over night
You sure can 😉
Hello Mrs.Rosie how are you these ribs look great and very tasty I will be trying these this weekend with your delicious potato salad thanks for sharing
Thanks for coming by Ms. Felicia
Made these tonight and so good! I had to make a change since I have no liquid smoke, so used Heinz 57 Sauce. I forget how tasty that stuff is.
Really good rib recipe! Thank you Rosie!
Hi Rose my name is Felix. I found out about your recipes from my Cousin. I really look forward to trying the rib recipe and other tecioes you have.
Rosie I for a long time WAS intimidated to make ribs. I dont know I stumbled upon your website however your videos and instructions are simple to follow. I have made several of your recipes especially the crock pot mac and cheese as well as the southern mac and cheese. Back to these ribs I bought 1 slab and even the Husband was nervous about me making them. His tune quickly changed once he saw they were falling off of the bone and absolutely fail proof. I followed the recipe to the letter except I forgot to season both sides until I read others review I missed that step. Even with this they were still melt in your mouth fall of the bone. I will use NO OTHER recipe and glad to have found your site. Hugs from across the screen.
SO glad that you found my blog and tried my recipe!! XOXO

I made the oven bake ribs today and they were delicious!!! This recipe was easy to make. The ribs taste like they are straight off the grill. They were tender and juicy. This is definitely my go to rib recipe from now on.
Glad that you liked the recipe!
cindy kebodeaux says
You have a great site Rosie. Going to cook these ribs tomorrow. Thank you sweetie <3
I came across your recipe on YouTube Rosie. I can’t wait to make this for my family tomorrow 😀
Paradise Donaldson says
Can I use country style ribs instead?
Hi, Rosie. Prepared this for my 4th of July meal. The flavor is amaaazzzzung. Thank you for your delicious fecipes. Keep them coming.
Gabe Evans says
In the oven RIGHT NOW! Soooooo excited!!
Karen Martin says
These ribs are amazing as with the other dishes you have graciously shared with everyone. I may never go back to the grill.
Do you have a cookbook?
I don’t have a cookbook at this time 🙁
Not only are these ribs amazing, but the dry rub itself is so versatile (and delicious!). I have made the ribs multiple times (in the oven right now, as a matter of fact) but I make a huge batch of the dry rub -minus the mustard powder to be more versatile- and use it on any pork I cook. It is also amazing on salmon, chicken, roasts, steak, shrimp…basically everything! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe 🙂
Rosie they turned out as you said. So tender, fall off the bone delicious! Very flavorful. I will definitely make these again!
Thanks for giving my recipe a try Kevin!
Rene Chaisson says
I stumbled across this recipe a few months ago. After these amazing ribs, I kept looking for it again today! So glad I found your site!
Another Rosie hit!! I made two slabs thinking I’d have enough to take to work to share with a coworker. My family of 5 left nothing but scraps.
These really are incredible ribs. I’ve always wanted to try making them in the oven but, even tho I’m an experience cook and baker, haven’t been really very secure about it. The St. Louis ribs went on sale for a really great price so I went for it.
Thanks so much! Looking forward to checking out some of your other recipes.

Just made your bq ribs looks delicious cant wait to eat them
This will be my first time making ribs!! Am so excited to use your recipe. I’ve used your recipe for Mississippi pot roast, oxtails, corn beef and cabbage and short ribs. Your recipes have made our shelter in place a lot more enjoyable.
I’ll let you know what the family thought
Thank you Cousin!!!
Awesome! Be sure to keep me updated luv!! XOXO
Constance Gifford says
Omg!! My family loved it!!! Am adding it to our family dinner rotation. Thank you Rosie for sharing your love of cooking. Your recipes have made me a more confident cook.
With love and respect

Seriously the most tender, fall off the bone, succulent, fastest, tastiest, stickiest, ribs EVER made in an oven!!!! Didn’t have the dry mustard ( which is sad) but they were still tremendous! Thank you for posting and I will definitely be subscribing so I can try more of your recipes!
Made these twice in one week because my husband and son LOVED them. Unfortunately, I dont eat meat but just seeing the look on their faces is EVERYTHING. Thank you!
Subbed the onion powder for an actual onion and used maybe about 2 tbsp of actual mustard instead of dry mustard. Turned out great, the comments about these being addicting aren’t a joke. Will definitely be my main method of making ribs from now on.
For anyone making these, don’t repeat my mistake, wrap the ribs in foil completely – I just covered the top and much of the seasoning dripped onto the baking sheet and burned. Not a huge deal for the ribs but this does become an inconvenience when cleaning.
I just made these, and I can say AMAZING!!!!
carol c says
5 YEARS LATER AND IM stillllll making these!!! Hands down the absolute BEST baked ribs on the planet! I don’t make them any other way! We love you down here in Florida

I just want to say: I’m stuck in the blizzard in Buffalo and won’t be able to see my family for the holidays but luckily had some ribs in the freezer. These ribs are like a warm hug and were just what I needed to get through an otherwise pretty bummer time. Thank you so much for this recipe!
Thanks so much for trying my recipe!! Nothing like comfort food! XOXO
