1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees.

2. Carefully remove the membrane from the back of the ribs and discard.

The top slab in the photo has the membrane removed, the bottom photo has it on.

3. Wash meat to remove any debris; cut each slab into 2 or 3 pieces, cutting between the bones; place on a large sheet of foil wrap- enough that you will be able to wrap the slab; sprinkle both sides liberally with the steak spice; wrap so the entire piece is covered; place on a cookie sheet. Repeat the process with all pieces.

4. Place in a preheated oven for 3 to 3 ½ hours.

5. Remove from the oven and carefully take slabs out of foil; place in a baking dish side by side meat side up.

6. Turn the heat up to 350 degrees now.

As you can see the meat is super tender and is falling off the bones!

If you enjoy a more Smokey flavored BBQ sauce, you can find that recipe in my COOKBOOK on page 406.

7. While the oven is heating up, slather your BBQ sauce over the top of your ribs and spread evenly; place back in oven for 15 minutes.

Directions for BBQ Sauce- Yields 2 cups finished sauce
