Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is my no-fail recipe for fall off the bone, lip-smacking, low carb bbq baby back ribs. These will definitely have the rib lovers in your house asking for more!


  • 2 full racks of pork baby back ribs. (We figure a generous 1/2 rack per rib lover, so this should feed at least 4 people.) 
  • Your favorite sugar-free low carb BBQ sauce (We use and recommend this)
  • Heavy-duty aluminum foil (we use this) 


  • Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Remove the silverskin from the back of the ribs by peeling off.
  • Lightly season the ribs with garlic powder and a little salt and pepper or your favorite rub.
  • Brush bbq sauce over the entire front and back of each rack of ribs.
  • Tightly wrap each rack in heavy-duty aluminum foil folding in the sides and the top to form packets. Place the packets with the seam facing up in a long pan or baking sheet. 
  • Place in the center of your oven and bake for 2-2-1/2 hours or until the meat is pulling back little from the cut ends of the bones. 
  • When ribs are close to being done, fire up your grill to medium heat.
  • Open the foil packets and carefully pour off the hot liquid. Take the ribs out of the foil and put them on your heated grill for 5-8 minutes per side, or until they start to form a little char. Brush more bbq sauce on both sides of the ribs and continue to grill over indirect heat 5-10 minutes more to “bake” on the sauce. Be sure to turn the ribs to prevent burning. 
  • Remove grilled ribs to a serving platter, cut into half racks and serve with additional sauce.
  • Mmm, Mmm, Mmm!
Serving Size: Recipe makes about 4+ servings. Each serving has between 1-4 grams of net carbs depending upon how much sauce you use.
