BBQ ribs

Sure, here's a basic recipe for BBQ ribs that you can try:

### Ingredients:
- 2 racks of pork baby back ribs (about 4-5 pounds total)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Your favorite BBQ rub (optional)
- 1 cup BBQ sauce (homemade or store-bought)

### Instructions:

1. **Preheat the Oven:**
   - Preheat your oven to 275°F (135°C). This low temperature will help tenderize the ribs slowly.

2. **Prepare the Ribs:**
   - Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs if it's still attached. This can be done easily by loosening a corner with a knife or your fingers and then pulling it off.

3. **Season the Ribs:**
   - Season both sides of the ribs generously with salt and pepper. If you have a favorite BBQ rub, you can apply it at this stage for extra flavor.

4. **Wrap and Bake:**
   - Wrap each rack of ribs tightly in aluminum foil. Place them on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 2.5 to 3 hours. The ribs should become tender but not falling apart.

5. **Apply BBQ Sauce:**
   - After the initial baking time, carefully remove the ribs from the foil and discard any accumulated juices. Brush a generous amount of BBQ sauce over both sides of the ribs.

6. **Grill or Broil (Optional):**
   - At this point, you can finish the ribs on a hot grill or under a broiler for a few minutes on each side to caramelize the BBQ sauce and give the ribs a bit of char. This step is optional but adds a nice smoky flavor and texture.

7. **Serve:**
   - Cut the ribs between the bones and serve hot with extra BBQ sauce on the side, if desired.

### Tips:
- **BBQ Sauce:** Choose a BBQ sauce that you enjoy, whether it's sweet, tangy, spicy, or a combination. You can also make your own BBQ sauce for a more personalized touch.
- **Oven Temperature:** Cooking low and slow in the oven ensures that the ribs become tender and flavorful.

- **Resting:** Let the ribs rest for a few minutes after cooking to allow the juices to redistribute before slicing and serving.

This recipe should give you delicious, fall-off-the-bone BBQ ribs that are perfect for any occasion!
