"The Doctor is in" spare ribs

We haven't had ribs in a long time and really enjoyed these! This is an easy one too. I know some of the ingredients sound like a strange mix, but we loved them. Let me know what you think.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup taco seasoning
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
1 rack pork spareribs, fat trimmed
3/4 cup Dr. Pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon prepared brown mustard
bbq sauce

Preheat the oven to 250.
Mix the sugar, taco seasoning, paprika in a bowl. Rub both sides of the spare ribs with the mixture. Use a large baking sheet and cover with foil.


In a seperate bowl combine the Dr. Pepper, garlic, honey, worcestershire, and mustard. Stir well.
Place the ribs on top, then take another sheet of foil (or 2) and wrap the foil tightly around the ribs, but leave an opening in the center. Pour the liquid mixture on top of the ribs.
Place in the oven for about 3 1/2-4 hours.
Remove the foil from the ribs and brush just a little bit of bbq sauce on top. Place under the broiler in your oven to carmelize.
