Nonstick cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 275°F (135°C). Line a broiler pan with a sheet of foil, top with the broiler rack, and coat evenly with cooking spray.
- Salt and pepper ribs on both sides. Place ribs meaty side up on broiler rack and bake, uncovered, for 4 1/2 hours, or until very tender, basting both sides with 3/4 cup of the sauce after 2 hours, leaving the meaty side up after basting.
- At the end of the cooking time, baste both sides with remaining 3/4 cup sauce and cook 10 minutes longer.
