Wow these were great ribs! They were a little sweet and almost falling off the bone (didn't fall off but the meat was oh so tender). My first thought, was these tasted like something that I might order at a great barbeque restaurant. I used about 4 pounds of country style ribs rather than baby-back ribs, Coke and Kraft Hickory Smoked Barbeque Sauce. I didn't start quite soon enough to cook at 250 degrees F. for 4 hours but increased the temperature to 325 degrees F. and cooked for 2 hours. Once the barbeque sauce was added I cooked for 1 hour at 325 degrees F. (removed the lid about 20 minutes prior to being done). This is now going to be my recipe of choice for making ribs in the future!
