I love BBQ pork baby back ribs.
  We have our favourite place to get them, but a few months back I watched Todd Wilbur's Copy cat show and decided to try CHILI'S.  We decided to go there for our date this week.  I was extremely disappointed.  I ordered the Memphis dry rubbed ribs and Doug ordered the original sauce ribs.
  Mine were dry and with not much meat-or flavour.  Doug's were a bit better, but were still short on meat, sauce and flavour.
  I decided we needed to make a trip to American Fork to visit our rib place.  We love RIB CITY.  We highly recommend their ribs, and love the sauces on the table.
  RIB CITY is owned by Toni J.  She shared a Baby Back Rib recipe on a local t.v. show that I have made several times to great reviews.  I made them a few weeks ago (with some crock pot ribs) and they still had great reviews.

(from Toni J. owner of RIB CITY in American Fork, UT)

Spray a large (at least 9x13) pan.
Pour about 1 cup of water in the bottom of pan.  
Put in your racks of ribs and cover with your favourite sauce. (Ours is (still) Sweet Baby Ray's.)

Cover tightly with foil and
Bake at 350 * for 1 1/2 hours.
Remove from the oven and let rest 20 mins.  (THIS IS IMPORTANT.)

Preheat outdoor grill with all the burners.
Then turn to low and grill ribs about 20 mins.-turning often and brushing with BBQ sauce.
So good.
These ribs are not as tender as the crock pot ones, but the flavour is amazing.  Hard to beat that grilled flavour.
I will make both this recipe and the crock pot recipe.  The deciding factor will be time.
Sorry there are no pictures.  People were ready to eat.

I am not being compensated by anyone or anything (but I wish I was ;)
I usually buy my ribs at Target when they are on sale for $2.99 a pound.  They are usually meaty.  They are in a sealed bag, and I put them right in the freezer.
That is the price I like to pay and I usually budget about $10.00 a bag.
When I make ribs for Sunday dinner I make another main dish for non-rib eaters (sad, huh?).  Sometimes grilled fish or chicken... BUT I always let people know I am serving ribs.  They are a family favourite.
Let us know what you think if you try them. :)

UPDATE:  UGH!  No clue why there are white areas.  (The weird green is me trying to fix it.)
