Kansas City BBQ: Swoon Worthy Spare Ribs


As Valentines Day approaches most women out there are searching for something to show their sweetie that they care. Something that will surely win your spouse’s heart are these sticky, messy, oh so good KC Style spare ribs. Messy kisses are worth having!

I use a combination of a dry rub for a few hours and then add a thick wet sauce that I make from scratch. I am still contemplating sharing that one (my BBQ sauce) with y’all, so keep posted I might!

All you need to do is preheat your oven to 250, let the dry rub sit on the spare ribs for as long as you’d like. Pop those suckers in the oven for about 2 hours uncovered. After two hours have passed rub your choice of BBQ sauce all over the surface and sides of the ribs, Now cover them tightly and let them cook for two more hours. Let them cook on broil for 2 minutes and remove. This is my money shot here: place the cooked meat in foil lined cooler to sweat for at least 30 minutes straight out of the oven before cutting. This will keep the meat ‘fall off the bone’ soft for days!

For the dry rub you’ll need:

  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of white pepper
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 25 turns of steak seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Drizzle of raw honey all over

I wish y’all a very messy Valentines Day!
