Spicy BBQ Oven Smoked Ribs
- 3.5 - 4 lb baby back ribs
- 1 cup hickory wood chips
- 3 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
- 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated garlic powder
- 3 tablespoons oregano
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 cups Hot & Spicy Heinz Ketchup
- 1/4 cup Heinz white vinegar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 tablespoon ground mustard
- 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Pre-heat oven to 275 degrees.
Add wood chips to the bottom of a roasting pan, add just enough water to barely cover the chips, place roasting rack in pan and set aside to let chips soak.
Clean and prep ribs by removing the membrane off the back of the ribs and patting dry. In a small bowl combine all rub ingredients. Using all of the rub, coat ribs front and back. Place on prepared roasting rack. Cover tightly with aluminum foil, making sure to make a tight seal. Roast in oven for 2 hours.
In a medium saucepan, combine all sauce ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to simmer. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently, for 1 hour.
Pull ribs from the oven and remove foil. Baste generously front and back with bbq sauce. Raise oven temperature to 350 degrees. Return ribs to the oven and roast another 30 minutes, basting again half way through. Raise the oven to broil. Keeping an eye on the ribs broil until sauce is bubbly and caramelizing, about 3 minutes.
Transfer to cutting board, slice and serve.

Hello…! Meseidy You have done everything very well but i think you just forgot to mention the smoked time. Please check it and update.

This recipe is not a traditional “smoke” it’s done in the oven with wood chips to give the aroma of smoked.
I like the idea of spicy ribs and I really want to try this recipe. However, ive never seen spicy heinz anywhere… do you think normal ketchup combined with some chilli sauce will do the trick? Thanks

Have you ever tried this marinade rub on chicken
I’m trying your recipe out right now! Do you mind telling me which kind of roasting pan and rack you use? My rack doesn’t go all the way across my pan, and my ribs are hanging over the sides of the rack. I like the one you’re using in the picture! Thank you!

Your smoked ribs recipe is misleading.
It first says to roast low and slow at 200 or 250 degrees. Then, in the recipe directions, cook temp ranges from 325 to 350 to broiling.
Would you please tell us which way to do this recipe? It sounds great!
I fixed the confusion. Sorry about that! :/
Mary Mc says
Thanks for fixing for us. Look forward to making it. I never had noticed Heinz had a spicy ketchup. I’ve been enamored with Heinz 57 for probably 50 years!
