Baby Back Ribs require low heat and slow cooking to guarantee fall off the bone meat. The trick is to generously season the ribs with salt and garlic powder and roast, basting with my BBQ Sauce for Ribs, for the last 40 minutes. I like to serve these ribs with Spanish Rice. If you have any left over, try making pulled pork sliders.
