pour a 1/2 cup of water right on the ribs and sprinkle whatever seasoning you want on them - salt/pepper/whatever
wrap them up and bake the ribs for 2 hours on 350
take the ribs out and pour bbq sauce on them
then wrap them back up and stick them back in the oven for about 5 min or so
they are so tender and just fall off the bone w/out any effort!!! enjoy!!!
