This can be made the day before and warmed in the oven just prior to serving. They are also simply divine cold!

6-8 servings

8 pounds pork spareribs
6 quarts water
4 cups barbecue sauce (your favorite)
1 cup water, divided
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring the spareribs and 6 quarts of water (or 6 cups divided in to 2 saucepans) to a boil. Remove from water and drain. Cut ribs in to 1 or 2-rib pieces. Place ribs in a large bowl, pour 3 cups of barbecue sauce over and coat ribs completely. Use two 11 x 15-inch baking dishes, pour ½ cup of water in each and add the spareribs. Let stand for 30 minutes. Bake at 300 degrees F. for 2 hours or until very tender and brown, basting occasionally with 1 cup of barbecue sauce. Season with salt and pepper.

  "Oven-Baked" and Barbeque don't even belong in the same meal. Where is the smoke?

  Thats no how would make um. You are supposed to apply dry rub to the ribs, wrap them in tin foil for about an hour at room temp., then add your vinegar sause and slow cook in the oven at 300 - 320 degrees for 3 1/2 hours. Then you coat with a heavy red sauce and put em on the grill for 10 minutes to keep them from falling off the bone. Geez. Who came up with boiling em, your Mom?
