  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds baby back pork ribs
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Chipotle Joe BBQ sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 5 oz Chipotle Joe hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and ground pepper, to taste 


  1. Heat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. If the ribs still have the thin membrane covering the back of the rack, remove it.
  3. Season both sides of the ribs with a generous amount of salt and pepper then place, meat-side up, into a large roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet. (It may be necessary to cut the ribs in half in order for them to fit into the pan).
  4. Cover the pan or baking sheet tightly with aluminum foil, and then bake until the meat falls easily from the bones, 3 to 4 hours.
  5. While the ribs bake, make the barbecue sauce. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  6. Add the onions and cook until soft and translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in the cumin and cook for an additional 30 seconds.
  7. Add the ketchup, Chipotle Joe hot sauce, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar. Stir to combine, season with salt then cook for 2 minutes. Set aside in preparation for the ribs to finish roasting.
  8. Remove the ribs from the oven, discard the aluminum foil and generously brush both sides with barbecue sauce.
  9. Finished in the broiler, on high, for 5-10 minutes to caramelize the BBQ sauce.
