Tailgate Recipe: Bolts BBQ Ribs

This week, the Chargers are in Kansas City, home of legendary BBQ. Enjoy a taste of KC with these mouth-watering spare ribs.


For the Rub:

¾ cup brown sugar

1 tbsp smoked paprika

1 tbsp garlic powder

2 tsp pepper

1 tsp kosher salt

½ tsp cayenne pepper

For the Ribs:

5 lbs St. Louis-Style Spare Ribs

1 ½ cups BBQ sauce


For the Rub:

In a small bowl, thoroughly mix the the brown sugar, smoked paprika, garlic powder, pepper, kosher salt, and cayenne pepper.

For the Ribs:

Preheat the oven to 300°F.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a cooling rack on top. Lay the ribs on the rack in a single layer. Generously apply the rub to all sides. Bake for 2 ½ hours covering with aluminum foil at the halfway mark.

Remove the ribs from the oven and generously brush all sides with your favorite BBQ sauce. Grill (or broil) for 3-5 minutes per side or until the BBQ sauce has thickened and the ribs have charred slightly. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving. ENJOY!
