Air Fryer Baby Back Ribs
This cooking method produced some nicely flavored ribs that were fairly tender but still had some bite to them.

Remove the Ribs from the packaging and don't pat them dry, let the natural juices help the seasoning stick to the Ribs
Let the Pork Ribs set out at room temperature for 30 minutes
Remove the membrane by carefully slipping a butter knife between the bone and silver skin to loosen
Using a paper towel for better leverage grab the loosened membrane and peel free from the bones
Season both sides of the ribs with the BBQ rub
Preheat to 390°F on the Roast mode
Add Ribs to the Air Crisp Basket, meat side up.
Lower the temperature to 325°F
Roast at 325°F for 10 minutes.
Flip the Ribs over, meat side down.
Add 1 cup of very hot water to the base pan
Roast on 325°F for another 10 minutes.
Flip the Ribs over, meat side up.
Roast on 325°F for an additional 10 minutes. (The internal temperature was 198°F after 30 minutes of roasting.)
Switch to 350°F on Air Crisp mode
Brush the ribs with BBQ sauce.
If the pan has become dry add an additional cup of water to the base pan to prevent the sauce from possibly smoking
Air Crisp at 350° for 5 minutes to allow the sauce to set
Remove from the grill, let rest for 5 minutes, serve and enjoy!
If the membrane doesn't come off easily don't sweat it. Mine separated nicely after cooking.
