Ron’s Barbecued Pork Ribs:
2 lb. pork side ribs (see Note)
1 c. cold water
Preheat oven to 225 deg. F. Cut ribs into serving sizes (about 4 ribs per chunk).

Arrange in a single layer on a rack in a shallow-sided roasting pan or baking sheet. Add water to pan; ribs should lie above water level. Cover tightly with heavy-duty foil, sealing edges well so water doesn’t evaporate.

Steam 3 hr. before removing foil. Drain water and fat from pan.
|Steaming ribs on low oven heat takes 3 hr.|
While ribs are steaming, prepare Ron’s BBQ Sauce (indexed as Sauces: Barbecue (Ron’s). Refrigerate sauce until ready to use. Preheat barbecue to 400 deg. F. Brush both sides of ribs with sauce. Cook 5-to-7 min. (depending on barbecue’s heat), brushing top side of ribs a second time. Turn ribs over, again cooking 5-to-7 min. and immediately brushing top side of ribs so sauce has time to glaze meat.
|Three words: Fan-tas-tic! The best ribs ever!|
Note: This sauce keeps well under refrigeration. If you make extra, pour the amount you intend to use into a small bowl, brushing the meat from the decanted sauce. Do not save or reuse sauce that has touched basting brush or meat. What we both love about Ron’s BBQ Sauce is that it doesn’t flare up and char the meat as oil-based sauces do.
