Bake the ribs in the over for 2 hours. Remove the aluminium foil. Put them back in the oven for around 1 1/2 hours, make sure the meaty part is pointing upward and cook until you can push a toothpick or skewer into the meat with little or no resistance. Cooking times can vary quite a bit depending on the exact size of the ribs and the type of oven you use.
Increase the oven temperature to 500°F (260°C). Rub the ribs with the remaining 3 tablespoons of spice mix (when drying them) or brush them with the sauce (if you're using the sauce). Put the ribs back in the oven for 5 tot 10 minutes until golden brown making sure the meaty part is pointing upwards, Divide the ribs by cutting between the bones if you like and serve with the additional sauce if you're using it.
