*These ribs can also be cooked on a grill or in a smoker.
1 rack pork ribs
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
Salt and pepper
Your favorite barbecue sauce
Preheat oven to 300. Combine spices and rub over top of ribs (for a more intense flavor, put dry rub on ribs the night before cooking). Wrap ribs in tin foil, and place them on a metal sheet. Bake for 2 1/2 hours, or until ribs reach internal temperature of at least 170 for the best tenderness. With about 20 minutes remaining, take ribs out of oven, unfold tin foil and lather in barbecue sauce. Finish cooking, then let ribs sit 5 minutes before slicing.
