You HAVE to make this. Reading this post and casting this recipe aside is just not an option. It can feed a crowd if need by or can feed you for a few days if you love cooking once and eating a bunch.
I did add salt and pepper to the ribs before putting the sauce. I don't know where you get your ribs, but mine don't come salted! And you know my philosophy--when in doubt....
I also had about 5 lbs of ribs, so increased the amount of sauce.
Next time I would consider putting Cowboy's pork rub on the meat first for extra zing, but the recipe as is turned out fantastic. Perfect texture!

- Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 300.
- Arrange ribs in a 13 x 9 baking dish. Whisk the sauce and orange juice together, pour the sauce over the ribs and turn them to coat completely with the sauce. Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 3 hours. Uncover, increase the oven temperature to 350, and bake the ribs for 1 hour more, turning them once after 30 minutes. Do not worry if they fall apart a little when turning them over. Remove the ribs to a warmed platter and let stand for 15 minutes. Spoon off the fat from the sauce and serve the ribs with the sauce.
I have "food porn" on my iphone but haven't taken pictures off it yet, so will attach with next post if you are really interested.
