I have never had ribs better than these. Not even in a restaurant! They were tender, juicy and very flavorful. Believe me, they are well worth the time to make them. My family inhaled them!

The sauce was absoulutely too salty and just tasted wrong. I even tried tweaking this and the salt was so overpowering

I liked it. I added more garlic and onion powder. Plus added fresh cracked black pepper all of this is to taste. I also used this on beef back rib and spayed them with apple juice I grilled them.

My family loved this recipe. We BBQ year round 3-4 nights a week. This was simple and very good.
