I'm sure you will get alot of responses here - different responses. Here is how I do mine. I put the ribs in a large roasting pan with only the bottom covered in water. I put foil on top and bake in a 275-300 degree oven for about two hours. I put them on the grill for about 10 minutes - then comes the sauce. These usually fall off the bone.

The key to tender ribs is a long cooking time with a low temperature. Boiling should not be involved-ever (IMO).

You can cook them part way in the oven and finish over charcoal and wood chips for a smokey flavor or you can do them for the whole time over charcoal.

I would cook pork ribs for 3-4 hours at 225F with no water involved and expect tender ribs. The best way to add flavor is to apply a dry rub of spices 24 hours before coooking and a second coat just before cooking.

Pork Ribs

Hello Debbie:

Jim`s country style pork ribs
1. 6 country style pork ribs
1 48oz. can pnieapple juice
1 bottle of bulls-eye bbq sauce
1. trim all excess fat of the ribs
2. place ribs into a large stock-pot with juice
3. place stock-pot on stove a let them boil for 1 hour.
4. place ribs on a cookie sheet and baste with sauce on oneside.
5. place ribs in oven and broil for 2-3 minutes.
6. repeat process for other side.
7. take out and baste a third time and let set for 5 minutes .
they are now ready to serve. I usually serve these with my potato salad.
***these ribs will be so tender that after being cooked you will need a
spatula to move them**** enjoy......

I'm with Michelmarie here - start 'em in the oven with just a little water; I use a baking sheet with a cookie-cooling rack on top of it to place the ribs on, then I just put a little water in the bottom of the baking sheet, add the ribs, cover with foil and bake for about 2 1/2 hours before they go on the grill.

Michelemarie is right about there being a a lot of opinions, and we have done it both ways.

Generally prefer marinating and then long slow smoking/cooking.

But the pre-cooking method works just fine.

Just my humble opinion, and you have some other great ones here.

When cooking ribs {pork]make sure it does not have a kind of skin on the back of them if its there you simply pull it off before cooking therefor making it more tender .Maybe some body here can explain it better than I can.

I like to dry rub, then brush on bbq sauce and BBQ for a quick sear only, then wrap in foil and slow cook till tender.

The best ones won't be roasted at all, just smoked on the barbecue low and slow.
