Good recipe for winter when you can't get to the grill. The sauce is quite tasty and the meat comes out very tender.

This recipe is very good. I didn't have the honey mustard, so I used liquid honey and djon mustard. I also added 1 cup of hickory Kraft BBQ sauce, just to give the sauce another dimension. I also took the ribs out of the sauce, and baked them on a baking sheet for another 1/2 hour in a 300 degree oven. This way, they are more like ribs from the grill. Very yumppy...... Enjoy.
