Bubba's Ribs

Wash ribs
I cut them into 3-5 bone width - easier to handle
Sprinkle lemon-pepper on both sides
Lay face down (bone ends up) on SARAN wrap
Fold to the inside of rib
Lay face down on Reynolds Aluminum Foil - Shiny side OUT
Fold to the inside of rib
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
Place on cookie sheet on center self location
Cook for two (2) hours
Place on a cutting board at the sinks edge
Make a BOAT out of the foil
Slip the SARAN wrap from around ribs
Juice will stay in foil
Twist bones and pull out
Cut up meat and place in a bowl
Place on grill for smoke flavoring - NO DIRECT HEAT
Lock your door so the neighbors can't get in

Bubba's Ribs Additional Information

Saran wrap is thicker than the other brands of wrap. I can assure you that the Saran wrap will not melt, if it is placed inside the Reynolds Aluminum Foil.


I have been using this recipe for over 12 years and I have never, not even once, had the Saran wrap melt.

Bubba, plastic wrap releases cancer causing toxins when heated. I truly hope you stop using it for cooking and just use two pieces of foil for your ribs instead.

Here is a great recipe for spare ribs that I have been using for years. Enjoy!


3 pounds pork spareribs or pork baby back ribs
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder


Cut spareribs into serving-size pieces.


Place ribs, bone side down, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour. Drain.
Combine all the remaining ingredients; brush some of glaze on ribs. Bake, uncovered, 30-45 minutes longer or until meat is tender, brushing occasionally with remaining glaze. Yield: 4 servings.

Thrifty-Fun site is terrific! I have learned so much and enjoy reading the helpful advice. It's like having a smart and knowledgeable neighbor to rely on. The recipes given are grand.


Especially the Chickpea veg burgers and ribs without the BBQ. I chose to make a sauce with suggestions from other posted notes. I have found that reading all the posts for recipes is most helpful and perhaps then taking suggestions from each. Thanks All.
