Simple Baby Back Ribs


Birmingham Alabama is a great place for ribs. I always cook my baby back ribs on the grill, so when I was asked to create a recipe for wintertime and indoors, I was a little nervous. These Chipotle Baby Back Ribs came out great. The Baja Chipotle Marinade is awesome, and these ribs fell of the bone. These are so easy that anyone can make them.
