Preparing the Ribs:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). This slow-cooking method will help tenderize the ribs.

  2. Prep the Ribs:

    • Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. You can do this by loosening a corner with a knife, then grabbing it with a paper towel and pulling it off.

    • Rub the barbecue rub all over the ribs, ensuring they're evenly coated.

  3. Wrap the Ribs: Wrap each rack of ribs in aluminum foil, creating a tight seal. This will help trap the moisture and flavors while they cook.

  4. Bake the Ribs: Place the wrapped ribs on a baking sheet or in a large roasting pan and put them in the preheated oven. Bake for 2.5 to 3 hours. The ribs should become tender during this time.

  5. Prepare the Grill or Broiler: While the ribs are cooking, preheat your grill or broiler to medium-high heat.

  6. Finish on the Grill or Broiler: Carefully unwrap the ribs and place them on the grill or under the broiler. Grill or broil the ribs for about 5-10 minutes per side, basting with barbecue sauce. This step will caramelize the sauce and add a delicious smoky flavor. Make sure not to burn them; you want a nice glaze.

  7. Rest the Ribs: Remove the ribs from the grill or broiler and let them rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, making the ribs even more tender.

Preparing the French Fries:

  1. Preheat the Oven for Fries: While the ribs are resting, increase your oven temperature to 425°F (220°C) to prepare for the fries.

  2. Cut and Soak the Potatoes: Wash and peel the russet potatoes. Cut them into even-sized fries or wedges. Soak the cut potatoes in cold water for about 15 minutes, then drain and pat them dry with paper towels.

  3. Coat with Oil and Seasoning: In a large bowl, toss the potato pieces with vegetable oil, salt, and pepper until they're evenly coated.

  4. Bake the Fries: Place the seasoned fries in a single layer on a baking sheet, making sure they aren't crowded. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy. Turn them over once or twice during cooking for even crispiness.


  1. Serve: Serve the ribs with the barbecue sauce on the side and the French fries as a side dish. You can also add coleslaw or other favorite sides.

Enjoy your delicious ribs with crispy French fries!
