DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat your oven to 225°F.
  • Take a broiler pan w/ a slotted top or a 9X13 cake pan & a wire rack.
  • *Pour 1 to 1-1/2 cup Apple Juice/Cider on the bottom of the pan, along with a coarsely cut Spanish Onion. (You want the liquid about 1/4 inches deep).
  • MAKE SURE YOUR HANDS ARE CLEAN!
  • Season your ribs the way you prefer, using 1 T. per side & rub into meat. Place on rack, meaty side up.
  • Cover with a double layer of foil.
  • Bake for 3 hours.
  • If you have a smoker type grill, reduce oven cooking time by 1 hour & place in preheated smoker/grill for 1 hour. I prefer Applewood, but use what you like.
  • Remove from oven/smoker & baste with your favorite BBQ Sauce & broil or grill, until glazed. but watch closely so as NOT to burn. I prefer my ribs "naked" with the sauce on the side, but to each his own.
  • *NOTE: You can also use just water & add 1/4 cup Liquid Smoke, if you have no way of smoking them. You can also use Jack Daniel's No. 7 Black Label, but that's a little pricey. Use your imagination, but for heaven sakes, DO NOT BOIL THEM!
