  1. Puree melon, onion, vinegar and seasonings together in a food processor or blender. When well combined, pour into a saucepan and stir over medium heat until thick and reduced to about 1 cup (about 30 minutes).
  2. Heat oven to 275 degrees. Rinse and pat ribs dry with paper towels. Lightly salt and pepper both sides. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Baste with the sauce. Roast in oven for about 4 hours, basting every 30 to 45 minutes.

Tips & Notes

You can also use the melon baste as you would any barbecue sauce. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for three days.
