To start pre-heat your oven or BBQ to around 200° degrees Fahrenheit. If the heat reaches much above 250 ° levels you run the considerable risk of your ribs drying out.
Next rub the ribs with your favorite dry rub and place them bone side up in a roasting pan. I have discovered that jarred dry rubs are nicely balanced with sweet and spice and make for a fantastic tasting rib. In case you have a particular preference mix up a batch of your personal seasonings and keep it in an air tight container with the rest of your spices. You will then always have your favorite rub on hand.
Allow the ribs to bake for 8 to 12 hours. The more the ribs slow cook the better the final product tastes.
You can cut this time in half if need be and still have a great rib. Just check it out and see what works best for you and your family. Our house hold is usually up early and we easily have loads of time to place the ribs in and have them ready for dinner.
Once the ribs are done separate them and roll them into your favorite BBQ sauce. This allows you to customize the ribs into the tastes on your family and quests. I always seem to end up with three batches of ribs, the hot zip up things batch, the sweet and savory mellow batch, and the plain old do not mess with perfection only leave my ribs tender batch.
