These are SOOOO good; fall of the bone tender and a spicy sweet homemade BBQ sauce. The low temperature cooking aspect is easily changed based on how long you have (I've baked for 5 hours before at a lower temp) but this is the basic cooking time/temp required. If you extend the cooking time, just drop the temperature a bit. I have to admit that I never measure the maple syrup, I just pour over until coated.

It's true...It's true...they are falling off the bone good...I cut the recipe in half...I did cover my pan with foil...but the good juices still ran between the creaks...and made a nice sticky mess...but the ribs came out so delicious...for my rub I used recipe #414028 that I keep on hand...I almost forgot the water because it's not listed in the ingredients...just keep aware of that...served with a nice coleslaw recipe #253350 and baked beans for a wonderful meal...thanks for posting the recipe...Made for Spring 2014 PAC...=)
