  • Sprinkle Ribs with Rub and leave over night in refrigerator or just season with salt and pepper and get started . Put ribs on an oven tray add a cup of water , cover with tin foil and put in a 300 degree oven for about 3 + 1/2 hours , test to see if done by poking with your finger , if it starts to break though on the thin end of rack you can take them out of oven.( if using rub just finish on grill) While the ribs are still warm coat both sides with BBQ sauce . Let them cool . Heat grill , put on another coat of BBQ sauce . Grill until nice and browned on both sides. Serve with extra sauce.
