Did you ever try adding the water to the pan as suggested by another poster?
I have made this recipe many times, and love it! I also use your dry-rub recipe on chicken thighs - delicious. I just keep a jar made up in my pantry at all times and use it often. Many recipes call for wrapping the ribs in foil, but I've done it your way each time with great success. Thanks for posting!
