...Or at least, these are as close to Andrew's ribs as we can get; he's closely guarding the recipe.
We had these last weekend to celebrate Labor Day. It was perfect for us to cook them low and slow since we were on the river for most of the afternoon. Once we got back, Biz paid close attention to these, and it really paid off. They were delicious, and you'll be shocked by how few ingredients it takes--you don't need any spices at all.
2 slabs of spare ribs, trimmed
1 large onion, roughly chopped
Barbecue sauce, to baste and serve
Preheat oven to 350. Place onion in the bottom of a large broiling pan. Cut the slabs into sections after 4 or 5 ribs, and pile them on top of the onion. Pour about one inch of water in the bottom of the pan. Cover the pan tightly with several layers of foil, and bake at 350 for 4-5 hours. Discard onion/water mixture.
After 5 hours, heat grill to medium-high heat (or in Biz's words, "make it pretty hot"), and grill ribs for 4 minutes per side, basting each side with barbecue sauce. Turn the ribs 4 times, basting each time. Remove and serve.
