Prepare Ribs A Day Ahead For Amazing FlavorThese BBQ Sriracha Ribs are incredible. We can’t wait for you to see for yourself. You may never make ribs any other way again.
The ribs need to be prepped at least a day ahead, so the dry rub has time to do its magic. You can even prepare them up to 2 days in advance. After marinating in dry rub overnight, we slow bake these ribs until they are incredibly tender. At this point, you’ll want to tear right into them…and they’ll taste amazing already.
But it gets better. Smother the ribs with plenty of delectable zesty BBQ sauce. Then throw them on the grill at the very end, just to get that beautiful char and smoky flavor. These ribs are sooo good, there are not enough words to describe.
About The Dry RubThe dry rub here consists of basic pantry ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your kitchen:
- Brown sugar lends depth of flavor while providing the sweetness
- We highly recommend smoked paprika, as it has a much more pronounced, smoky flavor profile than regular paprika.
- Cayenne and freshly ground black pepper share some zesty kick
- For dry rubs, use garlic powder and onion powder instead of freshly chopped.
About The Bbq SauceCall it cheaty or not, but we’re making it easy for you: feel free to grab a bottle of your favorite brand of BBQ sauce (honey BBQ works extra well) and whisk in Sriracha and pure honey for the easiest zesty-sweet BBQ sauce ever.
Commonly Asked QuestionsHow long do you bake ribs for?
Ribs are best done low and slow in the oven. Bake at 325F for 2.5 hours for juicy, tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs.
After baking ribs to a tender finish, place on a heated grill for 5-10 minutes; just long enough for ribs to gain a nice light char on top.
