  1. Preparation: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Select a large baking pan to fit ribs in one layer. Line with heavy duty foil. Place baking rack (a cake rack works fine) inside lined pan to keep ribs from resting on the bottom of the pan. Remove the thin membrane from the back side of the ribs if not already done by the butcher. Sprinkle boths sides of the spareribs liberally with onion powder, garlic powder, salt , and pepper . Place seasoned ribs on the rack in the baking pan. Prepare sauce by combining lemon juice, bottled barbecue sauce, ketchup , balsamic vinegar , and hot sauce in a bowl. Stir vigorously until combined. (Makes about 3 cups of barbecue sauce.) Pour half of sauce into a separate container and set aside. Drizzle remaining sauce over the top of the ribs, covering all exposed areas. Cover pan tightly with heavy-duty foil. Bake 1-1/2 to 2 hours, until tender. Serve spareribs with reserved barbecue sauce. Optional: You can char the ribs on the grill or under the broiler before serving if you wish. Cook's note: Make up a batch of the barbecue sauce and refrigerate. Great for chicken , beef , pork, and shrimp .
