Ribs With Onion Soup Mix

IMG_0938I decided to try something different with baby back ribs and add the flavor of onion soup mix to the ribs,  it turned out great!  I prepared them in my smoker but you can do this on a propane grill or the oven.  It’s best to let the ribs sit for a few hours before cooking to get to room temperature so they will cook more evenly.

Racks of baby back ribs
Rib rub of your choice
olive oil
2 packs of onion soup mix
4 cups of water
Rub the ribs with olive oil.  Shake some salt on the ribs.  Cover with rib rub.  Place in smoker or oven and let cook for 2 hours at 225 degrees.  After 2 hours make an aluminum foil boat to hold the ribs and onion soup mix. Make it large enough so you are able to seal the foil around the ribs holding the liquid.  Put the ribs in the foil bone side up and pour enough liquid to cover the bottom 1/4 to 1/2 the height of the ribs.  Continue to cook for an additional hour and a half.  At this point the ribs should be very tender.  Cheers !!!!
