BBQ ribs are a great way to add a bit of smoky flavor and tenderness to your dinner. But if you don’t get the cook time right, you’ll end up with dry, tough ribs that are hard to chew. Knowing how long to cook ribs is the key to getting the best results.
2 racks of pork ribs
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup of water
1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Place the ribs on a foil-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover the ribs with another sheet of foil, crimping the edges to seal. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 2 hours.
2. Remove the foil from the ribs and brush them with BBQ sauce. Return the ribs to the oven and bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the ribs is 145°F.
3. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the ribs rest for 10 minutes. Serve with additional BBQ sauce, if desired.

For extra flavor, add a marinade or rub to the ribs before baking. This will help to tenderize the meat and give it an extra punch of flavor.
If you want to add some smoky flavor to your BBQ ribs, you can achieve this by adding wood chips to your oven. Place the wood chips in a foil packet and place them on the bottom of the oven. This will smoke the ribs as they bake.
When the ribs are done baking, you can also finish them off on the grill. This will give them a nice char and add an extra layer of smoky flavor.
If you don’t have time to bake the ribs in the oven, you can also cook them in a slow cooker. Place the ribs in the slow cooker and pour in 1/4 cup of water. Cook on low heat for 8 hours, or until the ribs are tender.
For extra tender ribs, you can wrap them in foil and steam them. To steam the ribs, place a steamer basket in a large pot and fill with 1 inch of water. Place the ribs in the basket and bring the water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Steam the ribs for 30 minutes, or until they are tender.
BBQ ribs are a flavorful and delicious meal that can be enjoyed any time of year. Knowing the correct cook time for your ribs is essential for achieving the best results. With a little bit of practice and patience, you can master the art of cooking ribs and enjoy a delicious meal every time.
