Dad's Oven Baked Ribs

“These are the ribs that my Dad has cooked for years. My friends used to make sure they came around whenever they heard that he was going to be baking some and as a result he usually made several batches at a time. I recently ran into some old buddies and they asked for the recipe so I thought I would post it here. These ribs are messy, sticky and the meat falls off the bone. I wouldn't want them any other way.”
