These ribs are horrible!!! If you like salty, dry, rubbery, stick to the bone no matter what ribs, please make this recipe!!!
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!
