  • 2 racks baby back ribs
  • salt
  • Pure maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place ribs in roasting pan and sprinkle with salt. Bake for approximately 25 minutes. After the ribs are golden brown, remove from oven.
  • Baste with pure maple syrup.
  • Lower the oven temperature to 250 degrees.
  • Tightly wrap the ribs with foil.
  • Make sure not to put any holes in the foil in order to maintain moisture and flavor.
  • Return to the oven for approximately ten hours.
  • When you open the foil to check the ribs (carefully avoid the steam),
  • You should be able to place a fork into the meat and it should immediately fall off the bone.
  • If there is any resistance or hardness, continue cooking in the oven for up to two hours longer.
  • After cooking is complete, coat with another layer of maple syrup.
  • If not serving immediately, wrap in plastic to keep moist until ready to use.
  • To serve, cut each rack in half.


This method of slow cooking Maple Glazed Baby Back Ribs assures the most tender, moist and delicious maple-flavored ribs.
Cook for ten hours. If not fall off the bone tender, cook for up to an additional two hours. I cooked uncovered for 30 minutes, then 11 hours foil wrapped, a total of 11 hours and 30 minutes.
