Bring on the Ribs!

These are so delicious, and could not be easier. You do need a cooler day since your oven will be on so long. The best part is that country style ribs are usually the cheapest. Enjoy!

Country-Style Ribs Baked in Barbecue Sauce

After 4 hours of cooking, these ribs become fall-apart tender and deeply infused with the flavor of barbecue sauce. During the final hour, the ribs are cooked uncovered to thicken the sauce and give them a shiny glaze.

Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 300.

Arrange in 13 x 9 baking dish:

4 lbs. country-style ribs

Whisk together in bowl:

1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
1 cup orange juice

Pour the sauce over the ribs and turn them to coat completely with the sauce. Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 3 hours. Uncover, increase the oven temperature to 350 and bake the ribs for 1 hour more, turning them once after 30 minutes. Spoon off the fat from the sauce and serve the ribs with the sauce.
