Season the Ribs

To start, place the ribs on a baking sheet and season them with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.

Bake Low and Slow

To keep the meat tender, bake the seasoned ribs at 250 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.

Make the Barbecue Sauce

While the ribs are baking, start preparing the barbecue sauce. Bundles of bacon-wrapped thyme lend the sauce a nice smoky taste. Remember to put some sauce in a separate bowl for basting, reserving the remaining sauce for serving.

Baste the Ribs

Using a pastry brush, baste the cooked ribs with the sauce and let them continue cooking, basting twice more, for 30 more minutes. 

Cool Before Broiling

Remove the ribs from the oven and allow them to cool. Right before serving, broil the ribs, basting with the sauce until the meat becomes charred. Pick the onion and garlic out of the sauce and serve it with the ribs.
