Sweet Smoky Mountain Baby Back Ribs

Back to All Recipes


  • 2 Racks of Villari Brothers Baby Back Pork Ribs
  • 4 Tablespoons of your favorite Rub
  • 1 cup Smoky BBQ Sauce
  • ½ Cup Honey


  1. While oven is preheating, rub each side of Baby Back Ribs with 1 Tablespoon of the Rub.
  2. Place each Rack of Ribs on a sheet of aluminum foil and fold the foil up to make two tightly wrapped packages (one for each rack).
  3. Bake in preheated oven until tender and cooked through, about 2 hours - 2 ½ hours, depending on the thickness of the meat.
  4. Remove Ribs from oven. Increase oven temperature to 325º F.
  5. Let Ribs cool for 15 minutes, then open foil and drain off the juices and fat.
  6. Mix BBQ Sauce and Honey together and brush sauce on all sides of Rib Racks.
  7. Remove Ribs from oven, and brush another layer of sauce on meat-side only. Repeat baking and brushing with sauce 4 or 5 more times, waiting approximately 7-10 minutes between each application.
  8. Cut Racks into individual Rib segments, and serve with more sauce on the side.
