  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add ribs and bay leaves, reduce heat, and simmer for 2 hours.
  2. To prepare the barbecue sauce: While meat is simmering, heat butter in a large heavy skillet over medium high heat. Saute onion and celery until tender. Stir in water, ketchup, lemon juice, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and molasses. Season with chili powder and black pepper. Reduce heat, and simmer for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Drain meat, and arrange in a roasting pan. Sprinkle with salt, and cover with barbecue sauce. Roast in preheated oven for 2 hours, basting every 1/2 hour.

Used this for venison that was given to us. Wonderful! Everyone loved it, and we used it like a pot roast, then the next night in tortillas like burritos. Superb!
