using dry rubs as marinades as well as dry.
Pork Ribs marinade with Knox's Chipotle BBQ rub
Pork ribs (any cut you like)
Knox's Chipotle BBQ or Jamaican
Jerk Dry Rub
2 cups Orange juice
Mix together 2 or more heaping Tablespoons
Knox's dry rub with orange juice.
Marinate the pork ribs for at least an hour in the dry rub mixture.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Arrange ribs, in a single layer, in a baking pan. Pour the dry
rub marinade over them. Cover pan with foil and cook for approximately
3 hours, depending on thickness.
To brown the ribs a little, remove foil, turn oven to 400, and
cook ribs uncovered for the last 10 to 15 minutes.
When done remove and let stand 8 to 10 minutes before serving.
If you can't wait go ahead and serve. They should be so tender
that they will fall right off the bone.
