My Outstanding Naked Ribs

iris mccall


Being an apartment dweller makes it hard for me to fire up a grill unless the landlord allows it. I'm past the age for hauling grills, charcoal, and coolers of meat to the park. These ribs will break your heart, and make you say , "sauce ....for what"?

How to Make My Outstanding Naked Ribs


  1. Heat your oven to 300 degrees. Combine all dry ingredients and if possible mix in a spicegrinder. Put into a container with a shaker top. Mix apple juice and devil's spit in spray bottle aside. Clean ribs and remove the silver off the back. (Silver is tendon and will not break down, no matter how long you cook it). Remove most of the fat. Leave a little to drip down and self baste your meat.
  2. Get a heavy roaster and unfurl saran wrap inside, not completely. Move to side. Season ribs front and back, two at a time and don't be shy about it. Set inside Saran wrap and spray with apple juice/ mixture. Each time season, spray, stack, until they all sit atop each other. Wrap good, I can't say how many sq. ft you will use but I can say wrap continously 6-7 times.
  3. Get Heavy duty foil, and wrap around ribs just like Saran wrap, 6-7 times. Remeber to wrap with the dull side out. This draws the heat in. You can place them on a heavy sheet pan or leave in the roaster. Cook at 300 degrees the1st 3 hours and 225 degrees for the remaining 5. Remove from oven and let sit 30-40 minutes so juices redistribute through the meat.
  4. You can flip them half way through, but it,s not necessary. They won,t be overcooked just put them in the oven and leave them alone. YOU WILL LOVE THESE RIBS!!!
