This recipe is the best. See i am 13 and i a love to cook so i am always lookin 4 a good recipe. I saw this one and decided to make it. Theese where the best ribs that i have every tried in my life. I am used to the cuban way but i could say this is 10000000000000000000000000000000x better than that way. If to are lookin 4 the best ribs around search no further i would highly reccomend theese ribs no matter what. it was so rich and tender and the meet literally fell off of the bone. When i saw the ingridients in the recipe i was like huh, that is weird but when i tasted it wasn't weird at all i felt as if i where in heaven when i ate those ribs. This is honestly the best rib recipe ever and cannot denie it ever. Read More

This is a freak'n terrific recipe! I used 4 lbs of basic pork spareribs that were on sale for 1.79 a lb trimmed them up and they were fabulous! I knew 2 lbs of baby back ribs would never feed my family of four...and at 6.99 a lb I was reluctant to try a new recipe on such expensive cut. This marinade would work an any cut of pork! I will try it next on country style ribs as those are my favorite since they are so meaty. I used Sweet Baby Ray's sauce as others suggested. One suggestion though...don't use the whole bottle it can overwhelm the delicate taste of the delicious marinade. The sauce should complement but not dominate. We enjoyed them very much! Thanks Mike!

This is an AWESOME recipe! At first I thought the red wine vinegar was maybe too strong and was going to overpower the pineapple flavor. I let them marinate over night. Used Sweet Baby Rays (the best bbq sauce ever) and OMG....it was so good. I will NEVER use any other recipe for ribs. The whole family loved 'em. My hard-to-please hubby was especially impressed. Thanks Mike! It's a winner! Read More

Wonderful! Easy to prepare and and even easier to eat! If your store has it I recommend you use Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Barbecue Sauce...Compliments the pineapple wonderfully. Read More

These ribs were fantastic. I marinated the ribs in a gallon-size freezer bag. Instead of baking them I cooked them in my crockpot for several hours before grilling. I also doubled the amount of ribs and there was plenty of marinade for the extra ribs. The ribs were tender and had a great flavor. Read More

These should be called Freak'n amazing ribs! We made them last weekend for 13 people (hit of the party) and are making them again this weekend. Note: Recipe calls for 2 lbs per 6 people which is not enough. I would recommend more like 3/4 lb per person. Read More

Well this recipe lives up to its name! I had to double it to make 4 pounds of ribs let it marinade all day but I cooked them in my electric presure cooker for 40 minutes then placed them on the grill my only regret is that 4 pounds of ribs wasn't enough! My family voted mine the best ribs in the city!!! Thanks Mike for this awsome recipe! Read More
