READY IN: 7hrs 20mins
Recipe by teresas

This has been my most favorite rib recipe for the longest time. My DS and DD have always requested this dish when they come home during the summer.(BBQ time!!) I hope you will enjoy this dish. It is from a cook book called "HOT & SPICY" by Better Homes Gardens that I picked up at the store. I have a couple of excellent recipes out of this book. ENJOY!!! Cooking time includes chill time.

Great ribs! The spice rub and sauce both provide great flavor. I did use a different cooking method...I wrapped the ribs (covered in spice rub) in foil and baked at 300F for 2 hours then brushed on the sauce and put them under the broiler for a few minutes. Everyone enjoyed them and they didn't last long. Made for PRMR.
