Bourbon Barbecue Pork Ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender. They are slow baked in the oven and basted with a thick and glossy, spicy and sweet, partially homemade bourbon barbecue sauce. Half a rack per person sounds right, yes!?
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
Locate the thin white membrane on the underside of the ribs. Remove this completely. To get started, slide a small sharp knife under the membrane to help release it. Set the knife aside and pull up on the membrane firmly to remove and discard.
Wash the ribs under cold water and pat dry with paper towel. Set on the prepared baking sheet.
Sprinkle each side evenly with the salt and pepper.
Cover tightly in the aluminum foil. Place in the oven. Cook for 2 hours.
While the ribs are baking, add all of the remaining ingredients to a sauce pot and whisk together to combine. Keep sauce warm over low heat.
Remove the ribs from the oven and remove the aluminum foil. Return to oven for 30 minutes.
Remove the ribs from the oven again and distribute half of the sauce evenly over both sides of both racks. Return the ribs to the oven for 30 minutes.
Once again, remove the ribs from the oven, baste the top of the ribs with half of the remaining sauce. Place back in the oven and broil for 3-5 minutes until slightly charred.
