  • 1 Rack Baby Back Ribs (Pork)
  • Barbecue Seasoning of Choice
  • Barbecue Sauce of Choice
  • Grapeseed Oil Spray


  • Coat the basket of the air fryer with grapeseed oil spray.
  • Carefully cut the ribs, this can either be done in sections or each individual rib. Remove the membrane on the back or the ribs if not already removed.
  • Season the ribs with your choice of seasoning.
  • Carefully place the ribs into the air fryer basket evenly. Remember this may need to be done in batches.
  • Once in the air fryer, use a brush and brush on a small amount of barbecue sauce evenly onto the ribs.
  • Coat evenly with grapeseed oil spray.
  • Using the air fryer or air crisp in the Ninja Foodi, cook at 390*F for 25-30 minutes.
  • Check the ribs after about 15 minutes and use a meat thermometer to monitor the temperature. The ribs will be the best at 170*F, but are considered done after 145*F.
  • Carefully remove and let rest for 5 minutes, then add additional sauce if preferred and serve.


Remember to watch the ribs closely and use a meat thermometer as all machines heat differently.
