Mix all ingredients except ribs, creating a rub.
Rub on ribs and let marinate for 2 hours. Then bake or barbecue for 3 ½ hours at 200*F. If you bake first then finish on the barbecue for 20 minutes to caramelize.
Alternatively you can blanch the ribs in stock until fork tender, then cover with the rub and barbeque.
