This is the first time I have made BBQ ribs...well I should say I made them once before and they were so tough no one could eat them. This recipe was great and easy! The only problem I had was getting the grill to 450. I finally settled on 400 and let the ribs cook a few minutes longer. This is a keeper. The meat was tender and very tasty. I used spareribs instead of Baby Back ribs but followed the recipe as written. Read More

Made these today! Used pork ribs and also used rub we bought at a National Rib Cook Off. I let set in frig for 2 hours. Put 1/4 c. apple juice instead of water and then cooked for one hour. Next day, hubby pulled out the offset smoker. He used coals and a little mesquite on the bottom and limbs off our peach tree for the top part and smoked for two hours. The last hour he spread on Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. It was outstanding. He wanted me to say t was 1/4-3/8" pull back. About 3/16" smoke ring. Read More

We made these Memorial Day, they were very easy to make and very tender. Followed the recipe exactly. Had them on the grill when I realized I was out of barbecue sauce so made my own using the Tangy Barbecue Sauce recipe form this site. Delicious!!!! Read More

These were great and so, so good. I usually end up with tough ribs - just can't do it right. I started these in the oven, then finished them off with the sauce on the grill. Will do again, definitely. Read More

We baked these off in the oven last night and then broiled them. They turned out great. Moist and tender, but still stuck to the ribs just enough. We will be making these atleast once a month from now on!!!! Read More

Good ribs, I baked in the oven on 320 for three hours (with the rub) and then BBQ'd with KC Masterpiece. Good. 45-60 min bake is nowhere near long enough. Read More

I've used many recipes from this site but have never bothered to rate one before.... but this one is worth the effort. My rib loving family LOVED this recipe. I used baby back ribs and did them in the oven exactly as per the recipe. Then I put them on the grill for a few minutes with our home made BBQ sauce. They were absolutely delicious. Very easy clean up.... could not have been better. Read More
