Combine all dry ingredients; reserve 1-2 Tbsp. for serving. Sprinkle red wine vinegar on ribs; coat both sides with dry rub. Wrap tightly in plastic; place in Ziploc to refrigerate 8-24 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove ribs from plastic. Wrap tightly with heavy foil. Bake on a cookie sheet 1 hour. Open foil (avoiding steam); add 3⁄4 cup BBQ sauce. Reseal; bake 45-60 minutes more.
