    Elisciar's Note:

    Three years of trial and error have led up to this recipe. No one has ever tasted these ribs and not commented how great they are. Since the steaming makes the ribs so tender, the meat will fall off the bone so easily you can eat them with a fork and a knife if you wanted to but I always found them perfect as a casual finger food, great for backyard parties.

      It is impossible for these ribs to come out dry if you follow the recipe. The steaming process keeps the ribs moist and the bake time is merely to firm them up slightly and allow the bbq sauce to form a coating. It's a shame that people would automatically assume that the recipe was bad without questioning their own adherence to that recipe. I've made these ribs in this manner for over 5 years and EVERY time I serve them, I get rave reviews.

      I made these and before basting with the BBQ sauce I tasted the cooked marinated meat and it was wonderful by itself! Very tasty, kinda sweet which is what we like! If I would have thought about it I would have thickened the marinade and glazed that over the ribs instead of BBQ sauce!
