Cheater Barbecue Ribs

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by breezermom

Okay, I am a firm believer in cooking my ribs over indirect heat on a charcoal grill (and I prefer baby back ribs)....but there are certain times of the year when it is just too miserably hot or too miserably cold to stand outside on the deck and do this! Plus my local grocers puts country style ribs "buy one get one free" at least once month, so I had to find a way to take advantage of this deal!! This is the recipe to use for any of those occasions!

These are really good and the sauce was amazing! I forgot to buy lemons so I just drizzled a little bottled lemon juice on top of the onions. Made as directed and will definately make again! Made for 1-2-3-Hits.
