We used this recipe with our July 4th weekend. The rub is easy to make and very flavorful. We ran out of Paprika and substituted chili powder instead for 2/3 the amount of the Paprika. We cut it down a little because the Chili Powder is more powerful and we have 2 family members who cannot handle the hot spices. The rub made the ribs very flavorful. However, the sauce which is created is too ketchup based. In addition, it made more sauce than the amount of the ribs. The next time, I will use this recipe for the rub only. In place of baking in the oven, we set it in the same pan we would have used in the oven but on the grill. We cooked the ribs at 275 to 300 for 2.5 to 3 hours. Then took the ribs out of the pan and placed directly on the grill. Because of the sugar based rub, watch carefully as the ribs will burn easily. Cooked with hickory chips and it was just like eating world class ribs at a rib cookoff. We will use this recipe (for the rub) again.
