How To Make Barbecued Rib Tips

Ingredients needed

  • Rib tips
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Spice rub (listed below)

Quick tips before starting

  • Some rib tips will come chopped up and others will come in a slab style form like regular ribs, since they are cut from the rib itself. You can cook as is or dice them up as I did in the photos. No one way is right or wrong.
  • You can sub the spice rub with any of your favorite. Especially if you do not have all the individual spices laying around.

Making the rib tips in the oven

  1. First, preheat the oven to 275F.
  2. Next, mix everything together for the spice rub. Then, remove the rib tips from the package and cover with the Worcestershire sauce. Next, sprinkle the spice rub over the ribs coating them heavy. Note, if using a different seasoning adjust how heavy you coat the rib tips because you will need to adjust for salt levels.
  3. Place in a baking dish then cover. Bake for 2 hours covered.
  4. Now, after the 2 hours carefully drain the baking dish with the juices. Then, cover the rib tips in barbecue sauce and place on broil for 20 minutes.
  5. Lastly, allow them to cool a bit then serve.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are rib tips any good?

Truthfully, they are easy and cheap. They can be something fun to make but they will not be as good as spare ribs or baby backs. These are cut from the thin side of the spare ribs when they are making them into the St. Louis cut. Saving the big meaty portions for the rib rack itself.

I think rib tips or riblets are a great way and cost effective to start learning how to work and flavor pork in your culinary journey.

Are rib tips the same as burnt ends?

Far from it! Burnt ends cover from the most flavorful part of the brisket and is chopped up then sauce. As mentioned earlier the rib tips come from the leaner side of the spare rib rack that gets removed. To add, one is beef and the other is pork.
