I love that cooksmart lady so I knew this had to be a winner and I wasn't disappointed. I'm embarrassed to report this was actually my first time making ribs and we did baby backs for the Superbowl. WOW. The rub was so great, I could eat a whole rack without any sauce at all, but I took your recommendation and made Lee Lees sauce as well (check my review there, loved the sauce, but only had green ketchup on hand which made for "alien ribs" LOL). The sauce was great too. Baby back ribs must be bad for you or something because they were just so darn good! Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I'll never have to try another rib recipe again.

This is a wonderfully simple recipe! The ribs turned out great; every bite was tasty and moist. My husband and guests thoroughly enjoyed!

In a word, "scrummy"!! I only did a single rack of babybacks, so I cut down the proportions. Also, rather than dirty my oven rack (which I just cleaned...), I put the ribs on a cooling rack set over a foil-lined, rimmed baking sheet; they fit perfectly. And here I thought Pam was just a Baywatch Bimbo..LOL. (just joshin', I know there are 2 Pam Andersons...) Thanks taylortwo and Pam. (not Pamela)

Really good rib recipe! I rubbed my ribs with the dry rub and let them marinate in the fridge for a few hours.I took the ribs out and let them sit at room temp for a while and then coated then with the mustard/liquid smoke. I cooked my ribs for a little more then 3 hours and I got very tender spareribs. I love oven rib recipes and this one was definitely a winner. Thanks for sharing.
