Made these today and they are awesome. I''ve never made ribs before and my hubby says they are better than his. I bought pre-seasoned ribs at costco and cooked them just like the recipe. Will be making these again. Thank you for the recipe.

I use food.com recipes often but have never written a review before. This time I just had to.. This is the best rib recipe ever! I too placed the tinfoil packet on a cookie sheet and cooked the ribs for 2 hours. I didn't bother to take off the outer sheath from the ribs, it became tender and could be removed with a fork or eaten when the ribs were done. They were wonderfully tender and flavorful . Sweet baby rays is also my favorite sauce. I love the simplicity and easy clean up too! Thank you for this recipe.

Amazing and super easy! I put in some onion powder and cayenne pepper for a kick for 1 rack for the grown ups. Omg this one is a keeper. Kids, hubby and my mom want me to make this at least once a week!

I made these tonight and they where "AMAZING"! They where falling off the bone tender with a wonderful flavor. I made my own smoked salt with 1 tbs of kosher salt and a 1/8 tsp of liquid smoke. I like to take the juice and drain it into a sauce pan and reduce to make my own sauce. If is it not getting thick enough you can add a little bit more brown sugar. If you don't like to make your own sauce Sweet Baby Rays is wonderful; and can be modified with some hot sauce if you like a little more kick.

This is the best recipe for BBQ Ribs I have ever seen. It's so easy to make. I use mccormicks steakhouse maple instead of the hickory smokesalt only because thats what I had in my cupboard. Thanks for sharing.

I've used this oven method before, and it really does give tender, fall off the bone ribs, but this rib-rub knocked my ribs out of the park! I found the hickory salt in a spice shop, but I've seen it for about $5 on ebay. I'm sure the sea salt with liquid smoke method will work in a pinch. Great rib recipe!

Super easy and super good! I used a prepared rub mixture because I was short on time. With only 4 hours marinating, the meat was, indeed, falling off the bone, quite literally. (Save for a couple of very thick, lean end pieces which, while falling apart, were a bit dry, something which probably could have been remedied with longer marination.) We, too, finished them on the grill, with Trader Joe's Memphis BBQ sauce. The ribs even outshone the blue crab! Oh, an I used applewood smoked salt. Yum.

Fantastic! My husband is not easily impressed when it comes to food, but as he put it "I've outdone myself" with these. Couldn't find the hickory salt either, so used liquid smoke, worked great. I don't have a favorite BBQ sauce, so I just used Sweet Baby Ray and it was awesome. We all ate too much. Thank you!

Best ribs I've ever made. I also made this recipe with dark brown sugar once and the taste was very rich. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

Very good and so easy to make. I used country style spareribs which turn out so tender and meaty. I spread some liquid smoke on the ribs before I rubbed it with the seasoning mixture.
I also used smoked paprika and yes I did use a little ground red pepper. When I put them under the broiler I used Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory and Brown Sugar barbecue sauce. There was very little clean up work by using the tin foil.
