Recipe: Snoop Dogg's Baby Back Ribs


Snoop Dogg's Baby Back Ribs, as prepared on "Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party."


Rapper Snoop Dogg, co-host of VH1's "Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party," calls these ribs his "Baked While You Baked Pork Ribs."

Start with a dry rub that includes Snoop-approved spices like "OG Onion Powder, Garlic Powder Hash, Lawry's Seasoning Skunk Salt, Johnny's Sativa Salt, Paprika Haze and Black Pepper Kush." If you don't have those on hand, just go ahead and settle for the "generic" versions.
