1. Oven

Type of heat 

Bake or broil.

Cut pieces of foil to enclose 1/2 of the rack of ribs. Cut racks of ribs in half, put on the foil, and brush liberally with your favorite BBQ sauce. Then wrap tightly and put in refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 300°F. Bake ribs wrapped tightly in the foil at 300°F for 2-1/2 hours. Remove from the foil and add more sauce if desired.

2. Grill 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place ribs in roasting pan and cover with foil. Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Lightly oil grate on grill with vegetable oil spray and preheat to medium heat. Place ribs on the grill and brush liberally with your favorite BBQ sauce. Grill over medium heat for 8 minutes. Then turn ribs and grill for 7 more minutes, basting regularly.
