Bestest Ribs Ever

slab baby back ribs
granulated garlic
salt
pepper
dark brown sugar
Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce

With meat side up, salt, pepper and garlic entire slab, then flip over and do the same. Now cut into 3 or 4 rib sections. Place onto a “PAM” sprayed cookie sheet, with edges with meat side up.

Pack 1/4″ of brown sugar onto the meat side.

Put in oven and bake 3 to 4 hours at 250 degrees. Half way through, turn over - meat side down.

After 3-4 hours, increase heat to 350 degrees and generously apply BBQ sauce and cook until sauce is cooked on.

Or before BBQ sauce, place cooked ribs in slow cooker and layer ribs and BBQ sauce, ribs and BBQ sauce. Heat until sauce is cooked on ribs, 30 - 45 minutes or so.

Note: I use less brown sugar just to cover. These ribs are wonderful.

A friend of mine brought this back from Florida. The recipe was in a freebie Publix grocery mag.

The point is to put this all together the night before and let it cook while you're sleeping. By the time you get up in the morning - all done! I tried it and worked out great - very tasty. I omitted the raisins & cranberries, and reduced the syrup to 1/2 c. I wouldn't have wanted it any sweeter. Gonna try it with just 1/2 c. syrup this time.
