If you have ever seen barbecue being made however, you probably know it is also a labor of love to do it well. Unfortunately, I don’t have somewhere I can set up a smoker, spend hours feeding wood into it, and constantly monitor it to make sure the temperature stays just right. No, I have an apartment in the city and not even a balcony at the moment.
This got me thinking however - how can I make delicious barbecue ribs at home in my apartment kitchen? Well, after much reading, experimenting, and asking actual pitmasters, I think I have found a way to make some darn good barbecue baby back ribs at home using just your oven. Yup, no barrel smoker, no Big Green Egg, no tending a fire for 8+ hours - just the magic fire box already in your kitchen. Sound intriguing?
Let’s dive in.
