Product Details: We've taken our perfectly balanced sweet and savory barbecue rub and blended it with the world's 2nd (but easily arguable the 1st) hottest chili pepper - the Trinidad Scorpion - to create a searing sweet heat for ribs, wings, pork chops, pulled pork, and grilled chicken. Tastes great sprinkled onto roasted potatoes, French fries, pork rinds, and potato tots, too.

1 rack of pork spare ribs OR baby back ribs
1/4 cup melted butter OR olive oil
Sweet Desert Heat BBQ Rub, as needed
barbecue sauce, as needed

~ Pull the thin whitish membrane off the concave side of the ribs
~ Brush melted butter or olive oil over both sides of ribs; sprinkle with enough BBQ rub to coat entirely.
~ Place ribs on a cookie sheet and cover with aluminum foil, pressing the edges around the edge of the pan to seal tightly.
~ Bake in a 250 degree oven for 4 hours.
~ Brush convex side of ribs with a thin layer of barbeque sauce.
~ (This step is optional, but helps to caramelize the sauce.) Grill ribs over a medium flame for 3 minutes on the sauced side only.
