How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Drizzle both sides of ribs with oil; sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Place on baking rack over rimmed baking sheet. Add 1 1/2 cups water to baking sheet, and cover tightly with foil. Roast 3 hours or until ribs are tender. (Meat should separate easily from bone.)

Step 2

Remove ribs from oven, and let rest at least 20 minutes.

Step 3

Brush ribs on both sides with Bill's Blackstrap Barbecue Sauce, and grill over medium heat 5 to 6 minutes per side or until heated through and slightly charred.

Step 4

Note: Ribs can also be finished in the oven. Preheat oven to 400°. Brush ribs on both sides with sauce, and place in shallow roasting pan. Add 1 cup sauce, and bake at 400° for 10 to 15 minutes or until sauce bubbles and thickens slightly. Serve with remaining sauce.

Step 5

*St. Louis-Style Ribs are spareribs with a fatty section removed from one side--easier to eat and somewhat leaner than regular spareribs.
