    Luvs 2 Cook's Note:

    Show: Down Home with the Neelys Episode: Neely All the Time Time does not include marinating time. After reading reviews I think I will cut back on salt in the rub. Depending on your grill you might need to cook longer. I have not tried this recipe yet though.

      I've been meaning to review this for a long time because it's the recipe I always use, since finding it. Everyone loves it and no matter how much I cook, everyone always wants more. Fantastic, tasty recipe and so easy to follow. I soak my ribs in cola for a few hours before putting the rub on and then cooking in my slow cooker (crock pot) while I prepare the BBQ sauce. We finish the ribs off on the BBQ and keep basting them with the sauce for about 20 minutes. Delicious - thank you Neelys :)
