Baby Back Rib Recipe

We love baby back ribs and we are always on the look out for a sale. We picked up a couple of racks of baby back ribs on sale at our local Kroger for around $5 per slab. When we find that sort of deal we usually buy 4 or 5 slabs and freeze them for future use. Baby back ribs  freeze beautifully! Do you love baby back ribs? Yes? Good because today I’m going to share our favorite baby back rib recipe.

My husband Jeff used to participate in a Barbeque Contest in Memphis every year at Memphis in May. He was on a team called Notorious PIG and they would enter the whole hog contest. While he never competed in the rib part of the competition he picked up some great tips and tricks from the pro’s and the recipe I’m sharing today is the culmination of that experience.
