- 1 slab spare ribs
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2-3 tablespoons garlic powder
- 2-3 tablespoons onion powder

- Wash and remove the skin/membrane from the back of the ribs.
- Brush olive oil on both sides of the ribs.
- Sprinkle all seasonings (except honey and sugar) on both sides.

- Bring it to room temperature: Before cooking, take the ribs out of the refrigerator for one hour until it comes to room temperature. This will help for a more even cooking.
- No aluminum foil: Don't wrap the ribs in aluminum foil. Doing this will cause the released juices to be trapped, and you will end up boiling the meat. Place the ribs on a rack instead.
