Start with ribs on a rack in a pan, and lay tin foil on top of the meat so it doesn’t burn (don’t wrap). Cook at 350° F for 4 hours.
Take the tin foil off, flip over (bones up), and bast with barbecue sauce. Cook for another 30 minutes.
Turn over (meat up) bast with barbecue sauce. Cook for another 30 minutes.
Repeat the turning process until ribs are tender.
This recipe was originally meant for baby back ribs and the result was semi-tough ribs – like all of our other tries. There has to be a secret recipe out there somewhere for fall-off-the-bone spare ribs.
