Fast Erny's Slow Cooked Ribs

Here we are with another one of Fast Erny's recipes. Last time I posted Fast Ernys Sonoran Lime Chicken  it was a hit. Now that summer is right around the corner, these ribs are a real crowd pleaser. It's the winner of multiple rib contests, and is AMAZING! The meat just falls off the bone, and the recipe is effortless. Go ahead try it out. You will want to eat these ribs every night!
3 1/2# St. Louis Ribs
4 TBS Garlic Pepper
2 tsp Salt
1 bottle BBQ sauce-
5 ounces Franks hot sauce
3 TBS minced garlic
I started with some meaty St.Louis style ribs, they generaly are cheaper than baby back ribs and yield more meat.Wash the ribs and pat dry with a paper towel.  Mix the garlic pepper and salt together and rub all over the ribs. Place on a cookie sheet that has 4 sides. Turn the oven to 400* and place the ribs in (no need to preheat the oven) fill a casserole dish with water about 2 quarts and place in the bottom rack of the oven. Cook at 400 for 1 hour. After the 1 hour turn the oven down to 225* without opening the door. Set the timer for 3 hours. Every few hours check the water and make sure it is full, but mostly keep the oven closed. Combine the BBQ sauce, franks hot sauce and minced garlic to form "secret confidential" sauce. Cover the ribs in the sauce and cook for another 45 min. For a total of 4 hours and 45 min of cooking time. Once they come out- cut the ribs, make sure you get some for you they tend to go fast.
