These ribs are first baked in oven and then finished on barbecue. Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit (July, 1981). Prep time includes grilling and baking time.

My family really enjoyed these. I used 6.5 lbs. of country style ribs and I baked them a couple days ahead of time. I barbequed them when the weather cleared up. They didn't get very brown in the oven, but they did crisp up on the grill. I don't eat ribs, so relied on the rest of the family for comments...thumbs up from all. Only complaint...not enough sauce! Thanks for sharing, Ellie.
