- 1 rack of baby back ribs, cleaned
- 1 bottle barbecue sauce
- 1 cup or can 7up
For the dry rub:
- 1 tablespoon rock salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon cumin
Preheat oven to 350’F.
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the dry rub.
Rub the dry rub all over the rack of ribs.
In a separate bowl, blend together barbeque sauce and 7up. Pour mixture over ribs while saving at least ¼ cup of mixture for basting. Place ribs on a baking dish and cover.
Bake ribs in the oven for about 45 minutes while basting frequently with the remaining barbeque mixture.
Tip~Basting means pouring liquid over roasting or baking meat to prevent it from getting dry. In this case, we use the barbeque sauce to keep the ribs moist and tender.
