I love a good rubbed down rack of ribs. You know what I love even more? When you can just stick them in the oven and let it do all the work for you.  Not all "good" ribs have to be grilled.  I live in Louisiana, so come on! It gets hot outside y'all. 
These do take a while to cook down in the oven, but well worth the wait!
