Oven "barbecued" ribs

I made these tonight, and Jim and Phillip loved them. They are super easy, but take a long time to bake. I served them with Macaroni and cheese  and Cole slaw

1 slab spare ribs (I had loin ribs, but I like St Louis style better)
John Wills dry rub or a commercial dry rub
2-3 tbl sugar
Sticky fingers Memphis style barbeque sauce

Turn the slab over and with a sharp knife take off the silver skin on the back of the ribs. Once you get an inch or 2 of it pried up you can pull the whole sheet off in one piece.  Season heavily on both sides with the dry rub and a sprinkling of sugar. Wrap the ribs in heavy duty aluminum foil and bake at 285 for 4 hours. Unwrap the ribs and pour sauce over them. Raise the oven temp to 350 and bake 20 minutes more.  Remove from oven, close up the aluminum foil and let the ribs rest for 5 minutes. Unwrap and cut ribs into serving portions.
