This recipe is so easy to make and the results are delicious. The slow cooking process ensures that the pork ribs are tender and flavorful.

For this recipe, you will need: 4-5 pounds of pork ribs, 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper to taste.
Start by preheating your oven to 275°F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the pork ribs on the foil. In a small bowl, combine the BBQ sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper. Mix until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Brush the mixture onto both sides of the ribs, making sure to cover them completely.
Once the ribs are coated, tightly wrap the aluminum foil around them. Place the wrapped ribs in the preheated oven and bake for 3 hours. After three hours, remove the ribs from the oven and carefully open the foil. Increase the oven temperature to 375°F. Brush the remaining sauce onto the ribs and bake for an additional 30 minutes. This will give the ribs a nice glaze.
Once the ribs are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
