Delicious spicy honey baked pork ribs that will tantalize your taste buds. You won’t be able to eat just one. These ribs turn out tender, juicy and oh so tasty. Unfortunately, you will never have any leftovers to chow down on the next day.
As I have said before, I was introduced to barbecuing at a very young age. Our family were avid charcoal barbecuers long before gas grills were a common backyard fixture. So, I used to think the only way to make great tasting spare ribs was to cook them out back on the BBQ. But I found out that is just not so. Pork ribs oven fashion can really be quite a delicious experience.
I am still a rabid outdoor barbecuing fan. But, when the weather gets too cold, yes that does happen even in southern California, I head for the kitchen and my trusty oven and make some pretty tasty ribs.
When it comes to ribs, I have a mad passionate crush. I have amassed more rib recipes than one can imagine. Both oven friendly and charcoal loving. However, I am told that this is one of my best. I tend to agree.
