To create a spice rub, place the paprika, black pepper, ginger, garlic salt, dried onion and granulated garlic into a bowl and mix well.

In a separate bowl, prepare a BBQ glaze by combiningketchup, hoisin sauce, sweet chili sauce, BBQ sauce, and sriracha hot sauce (optional) and set aside.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Trim ribs of any excess fat then generously rub both sides with spice rub. Prepare a deep rimmed baking pan with cooking spray then fill with water until it reaches a ½ inch from the bottom of the pan.

Carefully place the ribs into the pan, meat side up. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Then lower the heat to 325 degrees and bake for an additional 2 hours. Uncover, use a food brush to baste the top side of the ribs with BBQ glaze and bake for an additional 15 minutes,

uncovered, to set the glaze. Remove from the oven, let sit for 10 minutes and then enjoy!
