1 T. sea salt
1/2 tsp each: garlic powder, black pepper, chili powder
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1 rack of baby back ribs, preferably pastured and/or humanely raised
Rub ribs with 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 degrees Fahrenheit for 3 hours. During the last half hour, 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 degrees Fahrenheit 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 with Radish Salad, and Roasted Red Potatoes or Potato Salad.
