Baby Back Ribs

1 slab of baby back ribs (about 12 ribs)
1 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup of barbecue sauce

Mix together the paprika, sugar, brown sugar, and onion powder. Brush the meaty side of the ribs with oil and coat with the dry mixture. Wrap the meat with plastic wrap and leave it in the refrigerator overnight. Pour hot water into a broiler pan until it is about 1″ deep (if your broiler pan is too shallow, 1/2” is fine). Place the ribs on a rack above the pan, meat side down. Broil for about five minutes, just until the underside starts to bubble and brown. Turn the ribs over, so the meaty side is up. Bake for about three hours at 225° F. Check the water level in the broiler pan every 30 minutes. As the water evaporates, add more. When a toothpick slides into the meat without resistance, it is done. Remove the ribs from the oven and slather the bony side with barbecue sauce. Broil for about five minutes, removing before the sauce starts to burn. Repeat on the meaty side.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
