Out of all the baked oven barbecue ribs recipes that I’ve done this bbq sauce and pork spare ribs combination has the biggest kick to it. Of course if the mustard doesn’t do it for you and you’re a bit light on the Tabasco – well give the bottle another shake!
You'll notice with this oven recipe that the oven is turned up quite high, certainly higer than you would a smoker. The reason for this is that it is much more difficult to keep things moist in a conventional fan assisted oven so the cooking time has to be that much quicker.
It does make a difference to the texture and the flavor won't be the same as if the ribs had been smoked for a long period. It doesn't make it inferior however, it just makes it different.
This oven barbecue ribs recipe essentially consists of a sauce which is then brushed over the ribs during the cooking to add that barbecue flavor.
No salt is required in this recipe because of the soy sauce
