Rack of Baked St. Louis Ribs with BBQ Sauce
  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. 
  2. Remove the St. Louis ribs from the packaging and pat each side dry with a paper towel. 
  3. Drizzle the olive oil over each side of the ribs and rub in as your binder for the seasoning. 
  4. Evenly coat the ribs with the dry rub seasoning and let the ribs sweat (sit out) for 20 minutes on a foiled rimmed baking sheet.
  5. Place the baking sheet into the oven and cook the St. Louis ribs for 90 minutes uncovered with the meat side facing up. 
  6. Combine the BBQ sauce and honey together in a small bowl, whisk, and set aside. 
  7. After 90 minutes, remove the ribs from the oven and brush with the honey BBQ sauce. The ribs will be cooked at this time with an internal temperature ~200 degrees F for fall of the bone ribs.
  8. Place the ribs back into the oven and broil for 3-4 minutes on high so the honey BBQ sauce can set onto the ribs. 
  9. Remove, rest for 15 minutes and enjoy.

Meat thermometer recommendations

Every home chef needs a reliable meat thermometer to cook food perfectly. 

On Sip Bite Go, you’ll often see me using:

  1. Meater thermometer – a fancy wireless thermometer that connects to a phone app – gifted to me from a Traeger partnership.
  2. ThermoPro digital thermometer – which has a wire that connects the thermometer to a display box outside the oven/grill. 

It’s like being psychic! The great thing about either of the thermometers above is that I don’t have to take the food out of the oven to know the temperature. 

How to use ‘em… What I do is stick the digital thermometer in steak, pork, chicken, whatever… Then put the food in the oven, on the smoker, or grill.

While the meat cooks, it reads the temperature so I know exactly what temp meat is as it’s cooking. Without having to take it out and check. It’s really difficult to overcook food when you know exactly what temp it is inside!
