BBQ Roasted Pork Ribs

I have been avoiding recipes such as pork ribs since they look too complicated. It turns out they are not quite so. Simply cover the pork ribs with spices such as cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and prapika. Then wrap with aluminum foil and roast them on oven at 150 C for 2.5 hours. After that, remove from oven and apply barbeque sauce plus honey. Put them back on the oven and continue to roast for 10 minutes without foil at 200 C. It is all that easy.
