Lillian’s Baptism Party Ribs

2 racks of babyback ribs (1 Lb per person, I bought Trader Joe’s ribs)
About 20 peppercorns
1 stick cinnamon
2 sprigs of fresh thyme (or dried)
1-2 bay leaves

Good BBQ sauce (I used Trader Joe’s J )

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Submerge the ribs in water in a roasting pan.
Add the peppercorn, thyme, cinnamon, and bay leaves. Cover with aluminum foil. Cook for 2.5 – 3 hours. Remove from the oven and let the ribs cool in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes or overnight.

When ready to serve, turn the oven to broil and cut the ribs in between the bones to make individual ribs. Glaze the ribs with the BBQ sauce and broil, turning as needed for 15 minutes or until very crispy.
