By Good Ranchers July 6, 2020

We are excited to announced that Good Ranchers now has pork baby back ribs at all of our meat pop-up locations. Just like all of the other quality meat we sell, these pork baby back ribs come in either a whole slab or a stacked slab and are the most tender and juicy ribs you’ll ever experience. We take our Good Ranchers meat reviews very seriously!

Our pork baby back ribs are perfect to smoke, grill, or even cook in the oven, pending your preference. Below are a few of our favorite pork baby back rib recipes to try tonight. You can also see our pork recipes on Pinterest for additional recipes and ideas to try at home. Now that you’ve stocked up on these delicious baby back ribs, it’s time to put them on the dinner table pronto!

Baked BBQ Ribs Recipe:
  • Pull your Good Ranchers ribs (or any other ribs) out of the fridge and preheat your oven to 250 degrees.
  • Remove the tiny, thin membrane from the back of the ribs, by simply inserting a knife into the membrane to pull it off of the rib meat and discard.
  • Line your baking tray with aluminum foil, and place ribs meat-side down. Using a fork or knife, prick the back of the ribs 10-20 times. Be sure to leave enough foil to completely wrap the ribs top to bottom, then put in the oven using a baking tray or sheet pan.
  • Bake ribs for about 2 hours, and let them cool and rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • Open the foil and drain excess juices and fat, and increase oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  • Generously coat the ribs in your favorite BBQ sauce, or any sauce. You can use premade BBQ sauce to save on time or find your favorite and whip it up.
  • Put the ribs back in the oven meat-side up this time, and be sure to keep the foil open. Bake for 10 minutes and carefully remove to add another coat of BBQ sauce. Repeat this step 4 times for a total of 40-50 minutes baking.
  • Carefully remove ribs from oven, let cool 5-10 minutes and add more BBQ sauce to your desire. Serve with your favorite side dishes.
Oven and Grilling Combo Recipe for BBQ Ribs:

1/4 cup packed brown sugar (light brown sugar is preferred)

2 tbsp chili powder

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 racks Good Ranchers baby back ribs

1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 cup favorite barbecue sauce

Kosher salt and ground black pepper


Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, and rub the combined mixture over ribs. Cover the ribs and refrigerate at least for 1 hour or let set overnight.

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Combine broth and vinegar in the bottom of the pan, and add the ribs. Tightly cover and seal with aluminum foil and bake for 2 hours. Pour the liquid into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and add the BBQ sauce. Then take your ribs outside to the grill.

Preheat outdoor grill to medium high. Put ribs on the grill and cook about 5 minutes on each side, until browned and slightly charred, which adds that unique grill flavor to your already juicy ribs. Cut ribs between the bones and toss them in a large bowl with the sauce. Serving them this way also helps your guests not get as messy during dinnertime, plus it’s easier to split up and serve.
