Bubba's Ribs

Wash ribs very well, BOTH sides. Pat dry with a quality paper towel. Cut slab(s) into 5 and 6 bone pieces.

Rub some olive oil on both sides lightly (Bertolli). Sprinkle lemon pepper (Tones Lemon Pepper) all over (or other type rubs, see recipe below).


Cover with Saran brand wrap, folded to the back side of the ribs. Leave the fold UP. Cover with Reynolds aluminum foil, folded to the back of the ribs. Leave the fold UP.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Use center shelf.

Place ribs on a cookie sheet. Cook for two (2) hours. Turn OFF heat. Leave ribs in oven for an additional 30 minutes.

Remove cookie sheet/ribs. Pull foil back, making a boat around the ribs (Holds the juice in). Slip Saran wrap out from under ribs, leaving the juice in the foil.

Twist and pull bones out of rib meat. (DO NOT try to use a fork or tongs, as meat will fall apart.) Carefully cut meat up and place in a bowl with juice.

Serve with your BBQ sauce.

Maybe I don't understand recipe, but I thought it was not safe to place Saran Wrap in oven?

JohnLuse! Please click on the link below. It is S.C. Johnsons (maker of saran wrap) official site! Read their answer to "Can Saran Plastic Wraps be used in the oven?"

I see on the site where Saranwrap cannot be used in the oven, however, I volunteer in the kitchen at my church and we use the commercial grade wrap; we do put it in the oven. Never had a problem with the commercial grade. One time I tried to use the non-commercial grade product at home, meaning saran wrap. It did NOT hold up as well; it actually melted, so I won't do that again.

bpsmith, just want you to know that the concern is not the wrap melting but the possible cancer causing chemicals emitted from the wrap 'touching' the food during high heating :-( It's best to look at the ingredients used to make the wrap and do a search to see if they are possibly in the cancer causing categories if touching the food during cooking.
