  1. Combine brown sugar and spices in a small bowl; reserve 2 tablespoons spice mixture. Rub remaining spice mixture on ribs; coat well.
  2. Place ribs in a single layer on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet (17x11-inch) or roasting pan. Pour water into pan; cover with foil. Bake at 375°F 1 hour, or until meat starts to pull away from bones.

  4. Grill or broil 3-5 minutes per side, or until heated through and nicely browned.
