ribs up or down

when roasting ribs in the oven - which side do you face up?

and at what temperature? and for how long?

    Meat/fat side up.

    You want the side with the most fat on top so as it melts, it melts through the meat, thus basting it.

      Meat side up, 350 degrees, the cooking time depends on too many factors to nail down a specific period. They're done when the meat moves easily off the bone.
