My family really enjoyed these. I used 6.5 lbs. of country style ribs and I baked them a couple days ahead of time. I barbequed them when the weather cleared up. They didn't get very brown in the oven, but they did crisp up on the grill. I don't eat ribs, so relied on the rest of the family for comments...thumbs up from all. Only complaint...not enough sauce! Thanks for sharing, Ellie.

Tasty ribs, I may have baked them too long "until browned". I recommend increasing the amount of sauce for better coverage. So far, my preferred precooking method is with a pressure cooker, for which I know exactly how long they need to cook, they stay moist and retain full flavor. I had to finish these ribs in the oven because we were due a downpour. Made for Rookie Recipe tag game.
