My experiment with oven BBQ ribs:
Cut the slab into half and rub it with spice rub. Put it in the disposable aluminum tin and let it marinate for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator, covered.
Then, bake in 300'F oven covered with foil for 3 hours. After that, take it out and spread it with your favorite BBQ sauce and bake uncovered for an additional 1 hour. When done, broil in 500'F oven for 5 minutes. Spread the top of the ribs with additional BBQ sauce or dripping from the pan before serving.
Verdict: Surprisingly tender and moist, but not fall off the bone soft.
Spice Rub Recipe from Test Kitchen:
1 Tbsp + 1/2 tsp. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 3/4 tsp. cumin
1 1/2 tsp. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
3/4 tsp. dried oregano
3/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. cayenne
