No offense to those chicken folks but here's the "finger lickin' good" meal. These ribs are mouth-happy perfection. The key is slow-roasting heat combined with moisture to create steam that melts away some of the fat and softens the meat.

No matter which way you start the ribs, finish them over direct heat to get a nice carmelization of the sauce.
