DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees Rinse the ribs, drain them well and season them lightly with salt and pepper. Place the ribs on a rack in a roasting pan (I didn't have one, so I laid 3 ribs of celery lengthwise in a 9 x 13 baking dish and put my ribs on top of the celery). Pour 3 cups of water into the pan and cover the pan with foil. Bake the covered ribs for 30 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the roasting pan from the oven (watching out for the hot liquid in the bottom of the pan). Remove the ribs to a platter and drain off all the accumulated liquid from the pan, wiping the pan dry and lowering the oven temperature to 300 degrees.
  • Return the ribs to the pan. Using approximately 1/4 cup BBQ sauce per pound, brush the BBQ sauce over the top of the ribs. Bake uncovered, for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the ribs from the oven, turn them over and baste top with another 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce per rib. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and turn the meatiest side up, baste with remaining BBQ sauce. Preheat the top Broiler to 500 degree and place the ribs about 6 inches under the broiler. Allow the ribs to broil for a few minutes, caramelizing the BBQ sauce and then remove them from oven and serve!
