Viso's Baked Pork Ribs


Preheat the oven to 250 degrees fahrenheit. Yes, that's a pretty low temperature. However, we'll be baking the ribs for about five and a half hours.

1/8 cup White Sugar
1 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper

Combine the above ingredients in a bowl. Blend these thoroughly blended before proceeding.

Blend in 1/4 cup paprika

Finally, blend in 1/2 cup Brown Sugar

Mix together 4 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 tbsp Prepared Mustard, and 1 tsp Salt

The ribs will have a thin, white membrane along the back. This should be removed before cooking. The process is a bit tedious so allow 30 minutes per rack. I've found it helpful to slide a butter knife along a bone and then gently lift the membrane away.

For best results, begin at one end of the rack and work your way along, trying to remove it all as one piece. This generally works better than cutting out individual pieces.

For easier cleanup, I place my ribs in a baking dish lined with aluminum foil. Next generously baste the ribs with the mop sauce. Liberally sprinkle the ribs with the dry rub as shown here. Cover with another layer of aluminum foil.

Ideally, we let this sit in the refrigerator for 4-8 hours. Bake for 5 hours at 250F.

After 5 hours of cooking, remove the covering layer of aluminum foil and let back for another 30 minutes. If you wish, you can brush with your choice of barbeque sauce.

When done, the ribs should break apart using tongs as shown. If you have to use a knife to cut them, they're probably not done yet.
