FOR THE DRY RUB
Remove the thin white membrane off of the bone-side of the ribs. Mix together the brown sugar, dry mustard, cayenne, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Massage the rub into the ribs, and let sit for 1 hour, or up to overnight.
If cooking on the grill, place the ribs meat-side down next to medium-hot coals that are about 225 degrees F.
The indirect heat will cook them slower, making them tender.
Allow to cook for 1 hour.
Turn ribs every half hour, and baste with the Kansas City Barbeque Sauce.
Cook until the ribs are tender, about 3-4 hours.
If Cooking Indoors: Place in a roasting pan with a rack.
Slather the ribs with the Kansas City Barbeque Sauce, and tent a piece of aluminum foil over them.
In a preheated 350 degrees F oven, place the ribs, basting with the sauce every 30 minutes, and removing the foil for the last 30 minutes, and cooking until fork tender, about 2 1/2-3 hours.
FOR THE KANSAS CITY BARBECUE SAUCE
In a small sauce pot on medium-high heat, heat the oil and add the onion, cooking until translucent.
Add the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, and mix together.
Add to sauce pan, and let simmer for 30-45 minutes.
Use to baste the pork spare ribs.
