4 sides of Pork Ribs (spare ribs or baby back ribs)
1/2 recipe BBQ Dry Rub (click here for the recipe)
Your favorite BBQ Sauce from your favorite grocery store. I think Sweet Baby Ray’s is an excellent product, but everyone has their own favorite.
Heat your oven to 275 degrees F.
Sprinkle salt on both sides of the ribs. (There’s no need to remove the silver skin on the bottom of the ribs.)
Liberally rub the ribs with the BBQ Dry Rub on both sides.
Put the ribs in a baking pan, and cover the pan with aluminum foil. (You can layer the ribs slightly so they fit in the baking pan, but don’t stack them.)
Bake for 3-4 hours – the meat should come away from the bone easily when you grab it with your tongs.
At this point, you can eat the ribs as is (if you like them without sauce), or you can grill them with BBQ sauce as follows. (You can also chill the ribs at this point and BBQ them the next day. In fact, if you are going to cut the individual riblets before you serve them, it’s better to cut them cold.)
Fire up the grill.
Brush the BBQ Sauce on both sides of the ribs as you grill them at a medium flame. (You want the sauce to caramelize a bit, but too long & it will burn).
