Grandma's Oven Barbecued Spare Ribs

"This is one of my favorite recipes that my Grandma makes.  The ribs are slathered in a savory sauce that is finger-lickin' good!"

4 to 5 pounds Pork spare ribs
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 of a lemon, thinly sliced
1 large onion, chopped finely
1 cup ketchup
2 cups water
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
Few drops Tabasco sauce

Cut spare ribs into pieces of 3 or 4 ribs.  Spread in a shallow baking pan, meaty side up  Season with salt and pepper.  On each rib piece, place one lemon slice and sprinkle chopped onion over all.  Bake, uncovered 45 minutes at 450 degrees.  Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Pour over ribs, reduce heat to 350 degrees and roast uncovered, 1 to 1.5 hours.  Baste occasionally with sauce. 

"I baked the ribs in my Dutch Oven.  It worked great!"
