Sweet and Smoky Oven Spareribs

Sweet and Smoky Oven Spareribs

1 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons paprika
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
5 pounds spareribs, cut into 4 slabs, rinsed and patted dry
2 teaspoons paprika
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar

1. Heat oven to 200.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika, salt, garlic powder, cloves and cinnamon. Place each slab of ribs on a piece of foil large enough to fold into a packet. Sprinkle spice rub over the ribs, patting it in generously on all sides. Turn the ribs meat side down and tightly fold the foil to make sealed packets. Put a cooling rack on a baking sheet, place the foil packet on cooling rack/baking sheet and place in oven.
3. Bake 4 hours at 200, then reduce the temperature to 175 for another two hours or until a fork easily penetrates the meat.
4. Open each packet carefully and pour the accumulated juices into a saucepan. Boil the juices and reduce them by half. Stir in paprika and vinegar.
5. Remove the ribs from the foil and coat them with the sauce.
