This one was hard to decide how many stars to give. On one hand the ribs came out nice and tender, but so did the ones I didn't marinate, but not quite as tender (I used a rub on them). On the other hand the flavor from the marinade in the meat was very light, and so I needed to put barbecue sauce on them in the end or they would have been bland. On the third hand (can I have 3 hands?) with my normal method of making ribs they come out nice and tender, have lots of flavor and no marinating time. This was the deciding factor for 3 stars - good texture but the flavor isn't special enough to spend the time on the method. I cooked the ribs over direct heat on the gas grill until they were nice and brown then moved them over and cooked with indirect heat for about another hour.
