Place rack in a baking dish. Massage olive oil into ribs. Season liberally with preferred spices. Pour water into baking dish around the ribs. Take two pieces of aluminum foil and create a tent over the ribs, sealing the edges around the baking dish.
Depending on the size of your rack, cook for 3-4 hours. When the meat starts to cook away from the bones at the end, you should be good to go. If needed, use a meat thermometer to desired doneness.
Baste the ribs about once an hour with juices in the bottom of the pan.
