For this recipe, start off with the oven and then proceed to the barbecue. But, as it works for both, oven instructions are included too for the final part. For the barbecue version, you need to cook on the indirect heat method with a covered grill, following the same oven cooking temperatures. Just remember to fire up your barbecue about 45 minutes before you finish cooking your ribs first time around.
