Baby Back Baked Ribs

Rib Rub:

1 T. sea salt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp dried oregano

dash clove

1/2 tsp each: black pepper and chili powder (omit for AIP)

1 rack of baby back ribs, preferably pastured and/or humanely raised

Rub ribs with the rub at least 1 hour prior to cooking or apply to ribs and allow them to sit in the fridge overnight.  Put ribs in roasting pan with about 1/4 c. of water and cover pan with tin foil.  Bake at 300 F for 2.5 hours.  Remove ribs from oven, apply your favorite bbq sauce, return to oven.  After 3 hours is up, remove from oven, apply another coat of bbq sauce, turn oven up to 400 F and bake for another 15 minutes to add a caramelized coat of sauce.   Allow to cool slightly, about 10 minutes, before slicing.  Slice into sets of three, though, hopefully, they will fall apart easily.  This was a large dinner for two, and they were so good, I am not sure I would had wanted to share.  Serve with summer sides like: Watermelon, Garden Greens Salad with Radish, Fermented Vegetables, and Potato Salad.
