Type of heat
Bake or broil. Season ribs with your favorite seasonings: salt, pepper, onion. Place in baking pan with 1/4 cup water covering bottom of pan. Cover and bake at 325°F for 1-1/2 hours. Add barbecue sauce and bake covered an additional 1/2 hour until tender.
Let sit for 10-15 minutes. Serve with your favorite side dish from our fabulous deli.
Make sure to use a moist heat method if cooking in the oven. Also, use a pop-up timer - it could come in handy! Substitute Thunder River Beer in place of the water for a nice twist on this wonderful item.
Settings and timing
Grill over indirect heat for 1 to 1-1/4 hours, turning once. Brush frequently with barbecue sauce. Cook until juices run clear.
Let sit for 10-15 minutes. Baste with your favorite BBQ sauce. Teriyaki is also really good with these.
Seasoning - Experiment with spice rubs and blends. There are numerous varieties available. Find the one you like the best. If using teriyaki sauce instead of BBQ, substitute a fruit juice like pineapple or apple instead of water to add another delicious twist.
