St. Louis Style Ribs Recipe

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes


  • 3 lb. spareribs
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 4 tbsp. butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 c. barbecue sauce



  1. Preheat oven to 300° and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. If your ribs have a thin membrane over the bones on the backside, remove by carefully sliding a knife under membrane and then peel it away.
  2. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and seasonings. Rub mixture all over ribs until well coated.
  3. Space butter out over ribs and wrap tightly in foil and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake until very tender and separates easily with a fork, about 2 1/2 hours.
  4. Heat oven to broil and unwrap ribs and brush all over with barbecue sauce. Place back on baking sheet and broil until sauce starts to caramelize, 5 minutes.

I watch Diners, drive-ins and Dives a great deal but still have difficulty distinguishing the different style of ribs. I guess I need to get out a bit more often to rib joints, cheers cvc

Yummy Yummy and I am thinking that Barbara Todaro will allow me to have these, as long as I use sugar-free bbq sauce!

Hi Will- I am making my own bbq sauce tomorrow!  Tonight we had smoked pork chops and they were pretty good!

Will, ribs are one of my favorite foods. My mom and dad both make different styles and each is equally good. I may have to try my hand with your recipe!

I prefer mine on the smoker, but certainly agree with removing the silverskin off the back of the ribs! Thanks for sharing.
