Heartland Cooks - Deb's cold weather ribs 2/19

JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - There's nothing tastier than fall-off-the-bone ribs, but in the winter months, you may feel less inclined to spend hours tending a grill or smoker.

Deb Martin of Jackson says she was always intimidated by barbecue, but has found an easy way to make delicious ribs indoors right in the oven.


  • 1 rack of ribs
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Salt


Preheat oven to 275 degrees.

Rinse and pat dry ribs. Place ribs on a large piece of aluminum foil on the counter.

Mix all spices in a small bowl. Sprinkle spices generously over both sides of ribs.

Wrap aluminum foil around ribs, folding to seal top and ends of packaging. Place wrapped ribs on cookie sheet.

Bake 5 hours. Remove and brush ribs with barbecue sauce. Bake ribs an additional 45 minutes to an hour.
