Ribs do NOT have to be difficult to make. A lot of times we overcomplicate what we think will be too labor intensive for us to make. My son wanted to ribs and in only a few short steps, they were cooked and ready to eat!
I bought a slab of fresh pork ribs from my butcher and brushed on bottled BBQ sauce that I already had on hand. I put them on a cookie sheet and baked them at 225 degrees for about 4 hours. I removed them from the heat, cut the ribs into three separate pieces, and brushed them with more BBQ sauce. I put them on my hot grill and let them cook on either side until they looked done, brushing with sauce one more time while cooking.
