- 1 rack of baby back pork ribs, about 4 lbs (Spareribs would work just as well, it’s really just a matter of preference.)
- barbecue sauce for coating (My recipe below, or use your favorite bottled sauce.)
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1 cup vinegar
- ½ cup dark corn syrup (I’ve substituted light in a pinch and it worked just fine.)
- 2 tsp sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp hot sauce
- Combine all of the ingredients for the barbecue sauce in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
- Reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered for 30-45 minutes until sauce has thickened to your desired consistency. Remove from heat.
- Preheat oven to 300°.
- Cut the rack of ribs into 3-4 sections. Each piece should easily fit on a plate and be a good serving size for one person.
- Tear off one piece of aluminum foil for each section of ribs. The aluminum foil pieces should be at least 6-8 inches longer than the length of the ribs.
- Coat both sides of the ribs with barbecue sauce and place lengthwise in the center of the foil. Each section of ribs should be in its own foil packet. Wrap tightly and place seam side up on a cookie sheet.
- Bake in the oven for 2-2½ hours. You know that they are done when the meat has shrunk from the cut end of the bones about a ½ inch.
- Prepare the barbecue grill. (If you don’t have a barbecue, the grilling step can be substituted with a few minutes under the broiler.)
- Remove the ribs from the foil and re-coat with more barbecue sauce. Grill for 2-4 minutes on each side, or just until you start to see small charred black spots. Be careful not to burn them! If the flames are touching the meat, they’ll burn in a heartbeat!
- Serve with extra sauce on the side for dipping.
