Cooking ribs
  1. Pre-heat oven to 300ºF degrees and Remove spice rubbed ribs from the fridge.
  2. Tightly wrap the ribs in aluminum foil. Place the foil wrapped ribs meat side up on a baking sheet and cook for 2 ½ hours or until the meat is tender and falling off the bone.
  3. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, carefully open the foil and apply barbeque sauce to both sides of the ribs with a brush.
  4. Set oven to broil and place the pan with the uncovered ribs under the broiler.
  5. When the sauce starts bubbling and colors, turn the ribs over, brush with more BBQ sauce and broil. Flip over two more times, brushing with sauce and letting sauce bubble and darken each time.
