Step 1

Preheat oven to 275°F with rack in middle position.

Step 2

Stir together salt, brown sugar, smoked paprika, pepper, garlic powder, and dry mustard in a bowl.

Step 3

Remove thin outer membrane on back of ribs by loosening with a butter knife and pulling it off; discard.

Step 4

Brush slabs evenly with oil; sprinkle with spice mixture, gently patting to adhere.

Step 5

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; set a wire rack inside sheet.

Step 6

Wrap each slab with heavy-duty aluminum foil; place on prepared wire rack.

Step 7

Bake in preheated oven until tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

Step 8

Remove from oven, and unwrap ribs; discard foil and drippings.

Step 9

Place ribs directly on wire rack; brush 1/2 cup barbecue sauce on top of each slab.

Step 10

Return to oven; bake at 275°F until ribs are tender and meat is pulling away from bones, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Step 11

Remove from oven; brush slabs evenly with remaining barbecue sauce.

Step 12

Increase oven temperature to broil, and return ribs to middle rack.

Step 13

Broil until sauce bubbles and starts to caramelize, 3 to 5 minutes.

Step 14

Remove from oven; let rest 5 minutes. Serve.
