BarBQ Baby Back Ribs

Although I've always loved this rib recipe from my aunt, I added a few touches and techniques to give them a deeper, more complex flavor.

Servings: 6

1/4 Cup Paprika
1 Tablespoon Dark Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Turbinado Sugar
1 Tablespoon Salt
2 Teaspoons Dry Mustard

1 Teaspoon Celery Salt
1 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper
