BBQ Apple Butter Baked Ribs baked with a kickin' dry rub and then slathered with BBQ sauce and apple butter. These ribs are finger-lickin' good and a perfect dinner for the whole family - napkins required!
Place ribs over an oven safe cooling rack that is placed on top of a cookie sheet. Spread or brush dijon mustard over ribs.
Mix paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, cumin, dry mustard, and brown sugar in a bowl and rub generously over all sides of ribs. Place ribs in the oven at broil for 5 minutes.
Bake at 300 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Cover with foil and return to the oven for 1 hour.
In a separate bowl, stir together BBQ sauce and apple butter. Brush over top and sides of ribs. Continue baking an additional 30 minutes until cooked through (total baking time of 3 hours).
Allow ribs to rest uncovered for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
