      These ribs were fabulous! Had them first at a friend's house. Loved them. She put regular barbeque sauce on them and stuck them back in the oven for 20 minutes. Delicious. Tried the recipe myself tonight and my DH raved. Said they were the best ribs he's ever eaten. I made the sauce in the recipe and really liked it; not as sweet as barbeque sauce. I will definately make these again and again.
