BBQ BABY BACK RIBLETS

I am happy to be sharing this recipe for BBQ Baby Back Riblets along with my homemade rub and BBQ sauce. 

Moist, tender, BBQ Baby Back Riblets rubbed with a homemade rub, and simmered in homemade BBQ sauce.

One night last week while fixing these riblets for dinner, I decided to take some pictures to share this recipe, since it always turns out so good.  I finished them off in my grill pan, but before I could serve them, I received an important phone call that I had to take.  When I returned to the kitchen, the guys were already eating the BBQ Baby Back Riblets, so I was not able to finish adding the sauce or to get a picture of the finished dish. 

I am probably not the only person this has ever happened to.  I had to laugh, but wishing I could have finished them.

The recipe for the rub and sauce will be included at the end of the post.
