Tips and Tricks
For extra flavor, try marinating the ribs overnight in the sauce mixture. This will help to really infuse the ribs with flavor. You can also add other seasonings to the mix, such as cumin, chili powder, or oregano. For an even crispier texture, baste the ribs with the sauce every 15 minutes while they are cooking. This will help to create a caramelized crust on the outside of the ribs.
