Mouth-Watering Oven Barbecued Ribs

READY IN: 3hrs 50mins
Recipe by Northwest Lynnie

These oven barbecued ribs are a compilation of several different recipes and techniques. They are so good they can even hold their own against charcoal barbecued ribs! Smoked hot paprika is HOT, so beware. Since you won't use all of the rub or eat all of the sauce, the sodium count per serving is actually lower than what is printed.

I am not a big fan of ribs...made these because my husband loves them..they were WONDERFUL!! I would decrease the salt to about 1 1/2 tbs. the next time and since the hot paprika was not to be found in my area I used a bit of cayenne pepper...they are really good and look like a picture! Thanks Lynnie!!
