Italian Dry-Rubbed Ribs

Updated: Mar 19

Don't be daunted by a whole raw rack of ribs. They are surprisingly easy and satisfying to make year-round, especially during grilling season.

Ingredients: Two whole racks pork ribs, beer or apple cider vinegar, 1 pack (appx. 4 Tbps.) Tutti Italian Blend or Tutti Tex-Mex Mix, kosher salt, favorite barbecue sauce. I like Stubbs because they use natural ingredients and avoid corn syrup.

Trim and pad dry 2 racks pork ribs. In bowl, combine 1 Packet (appx. 4 Tbps.) Tutti Italian Blend or Tutti Tex-Mex Mix with 2 Tbps. kosher salt and rub evenly over both racks. Wrap both racks tightly with aluminum foil. Let sit refrigerated 4 hours to overnight. If desired, freeze one rack for later.


Bring rack to room temperature and place in oven pan. Add 1 cup apple cider vinegar, chicken broth, or beer and use foil to cover. Cook ribs 4 hours at 225 degrees. As desired, brown over grill. Pro tip: Mix 1 cup remaining cooking liquid with 1 cup BBQ sauce and serve generously.
