1.) In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Place each slab of baby back ribs on a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil, shiny side down. Sprinkle each side generously with the dry rub. Pat the dry rub into the meat. Refrigerate the ribs for a minimum of 1 hour.
2.) When ready to begin cooking, heat the ingredients for the braising liquid in a small saucepan over medium heat until just about simmering, but not boiling.
3.) Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
4.) Place the ribs on a baking sheet. Open one end of the foil on each slab and pour half the braising liquid into each foil packet. Tilt the baking sheet in order to equally distribute the braising liquid. Place the ribs in the oven and braise for 2 1/2 hours.
5.) Remove the ribs from the oven and preheat broiler.
6.) Transfer the braising liquid into a medium saucepan. Bring the liquid to a simmer and reduce by half or until it’s a thick syrup consistency. Brush the glaze onto the ribs. Place under the broiler just until the glaze carmalizes slightly. Slice each slab into 2 rib portions each. Place the remaining hot glaze into a bowl and toss the rib portions in the glaze.
7.) Serve and enjoy!
