This was my first time making ribs and it was a surprise for my hubby! At 11 am I decide I wanted to make ribs for tonight. When I came across this recipe (which is the first one I found) I realized I only had 8 hours to go to the store and get the ribs, prepare them, and have them on the table when my hubby walked in the door! Well, I did it! And I only made a couple minor changes!
1) Because I only had 8 hrs to complete the recipe, I only marinated the ribs for 4 1/2 hrs. I did it like the original recipe says and I used bbq sauce (even though many people recommended dry rub, I only had bbq). Then I wrapped each chunk in foil and put them in the fridge for 4 1/2 hrs.
2) When it was time to preheat the oven I took the ribs out of the fridge and unwrapped them. I put the ribs on a drip pan with a grate on it that allowed for all of the drippings to be under the grate so the ribs weren't sitting in the grease! Then I put a little bit of water in the bottom of the drip pan and covered the whole thing with foil.
3) I baked the ribs for 2 hours 20 min. at 300 deg. After that time, I uncovered the ribs, put a little more bbq on them and broiled them for the remaining 10 min!
They were soooo delicious!! This recipe was so simple and the changes that I made were minor!! The only thing I feel is VERY IMPORTANT to change is broiling them for the last 10 min! Like other reviews have said, this is what makes the bbq sauce thicken and makes the ribs crispy!! My hubby loved them!!
