1. **Prepare the Ribs:** Start by removing the membrane from the back of the ribs. Use a knife to loosen one end of the membrane, then grip it with a paper towel and peel it off. This step allows for better seasoning penetration and tenderness.

2. **Season the Ribs:** Season the ribs generously with your favorite dry rub or seasoning blend. You can use a pre-made rub or make your own with a combination of salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, brown sugar, and any other spices you like.

3. **Wrap and Refrigerate (Optional):** For even more flavor, you can wrap the seasoned ribs in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate them for a few hours or overnight to allow the seasonings to penetrate the meat.

4. **Preheat the Oven:** Preheat your oven to 275°F (135°C) for slow cooking the ribs.

5. **Cook the Ribs:** Place the seasoned ribs on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Cover the ribs tightly with another sheet of aluminum foil to create a seal.

6. **Slow Cook in the Oven:** Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and cook the ribs for 2.5 to 3 hours. This slow cooking method helps to render the fat and make the ribs tender.

7. **Finish on the Grill (Optional):** For extra flavor and a caramelized crust, you can finish the ribs on a hot grill for a few minutes on each side. Brush the ribs with your favorite barbecue sauce during the last 10-15 minutes of grilling, if desired.

8. **Rest and Serve:** Once the ribs are cooked to your liking, remove them from the oven (or grill) and let them rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat.

9. **Slice and Serve:** Slice the ribs between the bones and serve them with additional barbecue sauce on the side, along with your favorite side dishes like coleslaw, cornbread, or baked beans.

Enjoy your deliciously cooked baby back ribs!
