To Serve

Thaw ribs under refrigeration first

For Wet Ribs
You’re going to coat the ribs with the BBQ sauce. Now, don’t go crazy with the sauce, just lightly put on a coat, allow the ribs to caramelize a bit, then add another coat. Flip the ribs over and repeat. If you can pick the ribs up and the sauce runs off, you have sloppy ribs, not wet ones. We’re not judging, though.

For Dry Ribs
Just think of the Classic Seasoning as if it were a sauce, and add just like you did for wet ribs.

For Muddy Ribs
Follow the procedure for wet ribs, and just before serving give the a generous shake of seasoning on top. Enjoy!
