This recipe worked out great for us. I found we didn't use all the rub spice. We also don't like out ribs real saucy so I cut that in 1/2 also. To cut some sweetness I cut back the sugars abit more. Loved the oven cooking set cause it burned off alot of fat on the ribs. Then we put the ribs in a rotisserie rack cause they were ready to 'fall off the bone delicious'. We loved the flavours, thanks for sharing.
