Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • Olive oil spray (Whole Foods now sells olive oil spray with no additives)
  • 1 (3 lb.) rack pork baby back ribs or spareribs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ recipe (3/4 cup) easy homemade barbecue sauce
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. Place the ribs in the pan, bone side down. Spray them with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake the ribs for 1 hour, uncovered. Drain pan juices.
  4. After the first hour, start basting the top of the ribs with the barbecue sauce every hour, and rotate the pan to ensure even baking.
  5. Bake the ribs 3 more hours (2 more hours if your ribs are smaller - for example, if a full rack weighs just 2 lb.), basting them three times.
  6. It's a good idea to divide the sauce into three parts and rinse the basting brush with warm soapy water between bastings, to avoid mixing raw and cooked meat.
  7. After 4 hours, the meat will be very tender and will fall off the bones. The top will be nicely caramelized. Remove the baked ribs from the oven and place on a cutting board, meat side down (they're easier to cut this way). Cut into individual ribs and serve.
