Mexican-Style Ribs Recipe.

The flavor of these ribs starts out with a Southwestern spice rub and a drizzle of lime juice – then they head into the oven for a few hours to let that flavor sink in. The final coating of barbecue sauce comes just before you throw them on the grill, so they come off with a complex and intense flavor, plus that delicious barbecue char.
