    Jules211's Note:

    We were experimenting with different kids of ribs. We came up with this. It sounds like a lot but it really isn't. The dry rub you can store in an air tight container in the cupboard. I usually use western style ribs (more meat) and I make a double batch of the barbecue sauce and dry rub. You can also use the rub and sauce on chicken. I have been asked for this recipe many times. There is never any left over. My son asked for these as his birthday dinner. Hope you all enjoy.

      Great Ribs!!Used this recipe twice now on a gas grill on low heat. Our ribs took about one and a half hours and were delicious. I basted every 10 minutes. Thanks
