oven baked ribs for tomorrow

jlix Sep 19, 2008 03:02 PM

okay, I have 4 racks of st louis ribs-- 10 pounds in all. I am planning on making a rub with cumin, paprika, chili powder and salt and pepper. and sugar. My question is-- should I put the rub on tonight and let it sit over night in the fridge?
tomorrow I will cook uncovered at 180 for 6 hours--- a method a friend swears by--

    Rub tonight.

    Check on the timing for the ribs, though. It's taken that long for me for 1 rack at 200 in the oven.

      Definitely marinate w/ the rub at least overnight. Below is a link to my old report outlining my method. Mine went for around 4 hrs. at 250F but I think lower (~200F) and slower would be even better. Good luck and let us know how it goes!
