Absolutely delicious! I seasoned it long before it got cooked. Turned out perfect and hubby gave rave reviews on it.


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.

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.
