The ability to open-air braise foods to tender juicy perfection in a fairly short amount of time is what makes the Convection Steam Mode ideal for pork shoulder, ribs, or beef roasts.

BEFORE YOU START: Any dry rub recipe will work just fine. Make sure to score along each bone on the bottom of the ribs with a knife. The dry rub can be placed on the racks of ribs a day in advance if desired, but at least 2 hours is necessary.
