> 1 tbsp salt
> 1 tsp black pepper
> 2 (2 lb) rack of  baby back ribs
> 1 large disposable foil pan
> 1 cup apple cider vinegar
> 1 cup water
> 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar


Preheat oven to 300°F. In a small bowl, mix the salt and pepper. Season the ribs on both sides with salt mixture.
Place ribs in the foil pan side by side, overlapping slightly. Whisk together the vinegar, water, and brown sugar until brown sugar is mostly dissolved. Pour mixture into bottom of pan. Cover pan tightly with foil and place in oven. Bake 2–2½ hours, until ribs are tender when pierced with a paring knife but not falling off the bones.
Set grill to medium. Grill ribs 8–10 min., until lightly charred in spots.
