Place water above ribs and boil
Sprinkle with garlic salt and black ground pepper to taste.
Transfer cooled ribs to Pyrex
Use tongs to transfer the ribs to a Pyrex dish. A 11 x 9 Pyrex with a lid works best which can be stored later with leftovers.
Pour on the barbecue sauce and add water
Use store bought honey barbecue sauce. Two 18-ounce bottles will be enough to cover a 3 pound package of ribs. Brush evenly with a pastry brush. Pour on about 1/2 cup water.
The barbecue sauce will spread on thick. The water will keep the sauce hydrated through the baking process and the ribs will come out finger licking good!
Serve with your favorite semi-homemade sides: macaroni & cheese, cornbread, buttered corn
