Slow Roasted BBQ Ribs

Jul 02, 2014 04:00PM ● By Cate Reynolds
Slow roasted ribs are a prime example of summer cooking. Low temperatures and hours in the oven leave room for all the things you'd rather be doing - swimming, tanning, sipping cocktails. Slather a dry rub on these ribs and cook them for hours unattended while you tend to your party guests. Once finished, they'll gobble them up in a heart beat.


1 rack pork spareribs
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. oregano
¼ tsp. white pepper
¼ cup brown sugar
BBQ sauce for topping


Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Combine garlic salt, cumin, black pepper, paprika, chili powder, oregano, white pepper and brown sugar in a bowl. Place the ribs on a foil-lined baking sheet upside down. Use half the rub and rub it on the ribs, coating completely. Flip them right side up and use the remaining rub on the ribs, coating them. Roast, uncovered, for 2 hours. After they’ve cooked for 2 hours, remove the ribs from the oven and pour BBQ sauce on top. Use a brush to spread the sauce onto the ribs. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and return to the over for an additional 2 hours. Unwrap, brush with a bit of additional sauce and put under the broiler for a minute.
