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!
This recipe SUCKED! I made it for the people at my work and when I had finished cooking, they were so nasty that I had to stop by Ralph's the next morning to buy some of their already made ribs to take into work.
This was awesome. I only used the rub in this recipe, and I added a little brown sugar to the mix. I used a store bought sauce with it and it turned out great. A really good mix of spicy and sweet.
Best ribs I've ever had.
Great combination of spices. It may look like it takes a long time, but marinating is so simple, and the seasonings are great. Wonderful recipe! Make it for friends and watch them finish it all off and ask for more!
The sauce was absoulutely too salty and just tasted wrong. I even tried tweaking this and the salt was so overpowering
You know, this was good. It was fun making my own grilling sauce for a change. The meat came out really good but not a tangy as I would have thought.
Wonderful rub - I made it exactly as Big John said, and rubbed it into a slab of pork spareribs. Let them sit in the frig for 17 hours. Then baked them, covered with foil, at 300 degrees for 2-1/2 hours. Fired up the grill at medium heat; basted both sides with Jack Dabiels Hickory BBQ sauce, and grilled them for 5 minutes on each side. Yummy!
Big John, I shamelessly stole your dry rub and adjusted it to make my own. Thank-you, Sir!
