These are easy and delicious, turned my fiance into a rib eater. I really love how Rob made his own recipe on a comment, probably should of put it on the site instead. Great job, we love them. Cooking them now for the 2nd time in 10 days.

This is one of the easiest and most delicious rib recipes I have ever made. The ribs fell off the bone and were so tender. Everyone loved the ribs. They were perfectly cooked. I cooked them for 2hrs before adding the bbq sauce and the ribs were delectable. Perfect rib recipe. I will make this again and again. A must try.

Cooking for two girls as a single father for several years, writing (everything from edit to copy), doing reviews on several subjects including foods/restaurants/recipes etc, the first thing that stood out was the salt. That was obviously too much, probably an innocent error. Secondly, preparation for me is rinse and dry the ribs, place in baggies with liquid smoke for two -four hours, remove and apply a film of good olive oil, coat with a dry rub of ingredients like, a cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup chili powder, 2 tbsp cumin, 2 tbsp dry mustard, 2 tbsp smoked paprika, 2 tsp lemon pepper, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground fresh pepper-Old Bay seasoning-Lawry's seasoning salt...wrap in foil and let sit a day. Place in foil lined bake dish, add a half cup apple cider vinegar mixed with a half cup apple juice, cover and crimp a foil cover, bake at 325 deg.F for one hour, check ribs and mop with pan sauce. when the meat is still flexible...maybe 15 min-30 minutes apply a thin coat of barbecue sauce. let cook another 15-20 minutes, then transfer to another foil lined bake dish and coat the ribs generously...I like to bring on a broil heat that caramelizes the sugars...and yabba do, you'll be asked for ribs every time! A few changes, same principle.
