Dickey’s BBQ Recipes

News 25’s Bryan Kennedy interviews Mr. Dicky about Dickey’s BBQ, as he gives helpful tips about BBQ.


Here is the recipe for Dickey’s ribs and Rib rub from Mr. Dickey’s Barbecue Cookbook.


Oven Pork Ribs with Barbecue Sauce

Yields one rack (11 to 13 ribs)

Temperature: 350 degrees F

Cooking Time: 2 to 2 ½ hours

1 rack St. Louis-style pork ribs

3 ounces Rib Ticklin’ Rib Rub

Barbecue sauce


Set your oven to 350 degrees F. Or if you are smoking your ribs, heat the smoker to 270 degrees F.

Sprinkle rib rub over the entire rib rack and use your hands to rub it in. Place your rack of ribs in tin foil in the oven for between 1 hour and 1.5 hours. Remove the ribs from the oven and place sauce over the entire rib rack. Place the ribs back in the tin foil in the oven bone-side down for up to 30 minutes. If you are smoking the ribs, leave in the smoker for 3 – 3 ½ hours.

Perform a “break test” for doneness.  Grab the rib rack with a pair of tongs.  If they immediately begin to “break,” (not bounce) they’re ready.  If they are still “bouncy” let them cook for another 20 minutes. Once all of the ribs have passed the “break test,” remove them from the oven, set aside and let them rest for 5 to 7 minutes.

To cut and serve, flip the ribs bone-side up to get a cleaner cut and allow the bones to be more visible. Make a clean cut between the bones.  You should get 11 to 13 ribs from one rack.  Flip the ribs over and glaze them with barbecue sauce and serve hot.
