  1. At one end of the rack, slide a dinner knife under the membrane and over the bone. Lift and loosen the membrane until it tears. Get a good hold of the edge of the membrane (works best with a paper towel) and pull it off. The membrane may come off in one whole piece, or you may need to remove it in smaller pieces. 
  2. Take your pork and cut it up in between the bone and it should come out to 12 to 13 individual ribs.
  3. Squeeze half of a juiced lemon.
  4. In a deep medium sized bowl. Add all of the ingredients for the rub.
  5. 1/4 Cup dark brown sugar.
  6. One tablespoon chili powder.
  7. One tablespoon paprika.
  8. One tablespoon salt.
  9. One tablespoon garlic powder.
  10. One tablespoon onion powder.
  11. Mix everything then rub it on the ribs.
  12. Place the ribs meat side down.
  13. Cover with an aluminum foil very tight.
  14. Set the oven on 300º and place the ribs in the oven for 2.5 hours.
  15. While the ribs are cooking, work on making the sauce. In a medium deep bowl, add all of the sauce ingredients.
  16. 2 cups of ketchup.
  17. 1/3 cup of dark brown sugar.
  18. 2 tablespoons of honey dijon mustard.
  19. One tablespoon of paprika.
  20. One tablespoon chili powder.
  21. One tablespoon onion powder.
  22. One tablespoon garlic powder.
  23. One tablespoon dry parsley.
  24. One tablespoon apple cider vinegar.
  25. One tablespoon hot sauce.
  26. Mix everything together.
  27. After 2.5 hours, take the ribs out and toss the excess water. 
  28. Rub the sauce on the ribs and grill the ribs for 3-5 minutes each side.

***TIP*** Cutting the membrane makes the ribs very moist and juicy… If you like to fight with your ribs as some people do (HAHA) then you do not have to get rid of the membrane.
