  • 1 (4 pound) package pork spareribs
  • 1 pinch garlic salt, or to taste
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons celery salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Sprinkle ribs with garlic salt and place into a roasting pan.
  3. Stir ketchup, vinegar, sugar, celery salt, chili powder, salt, dry mustard, paprika, and black pepper together in a bowl; pour over the ribs.
