One addition I would make is to remember to pull the thin white outter membrane off the back side of the ribs. My family loved these. I did the baked method and finished off on the grill.

Made these last night on the grill..delicious! I did leave out the extra tablespoon of salt, and used Sweet Baby Ray's, but other than that followed the recipe.

Yeah...pretty sure these aren't the "World's Best." Quite good, but definitely not the best I've ever had.

I've made several batches of this. By batches, I mean I make up about a cup of Emeril's, and then add the the rest of the ingredients. Great on chicken meatloaf, etc. Try adding some rosemary and dry mustard, Double or triple the cayenne (no brainer :)

I did this, followed the recipe to the letter, except omitted the black pepper (threw in some more cayenne). .I had made a double batch of dry rub, had some huge slabs. Only cooked one first day. Good start. Too much cumin. Now. I had made the Emeril's myself. Did a double on that too. Threw the rest of the Emeril's into the mix I had left over from the first try at this recipe, and I am here to tell you, Utopia is just an oven away. Just omit the extra black pepper, quadruple the Emeril's. DELICIOUS.

Absolutely FABULOUS and so easy to make. I actually cooked them for almost 3 hours and then put on the grill and they were amazing!

While the method of preparation produces very tender ribs, they were a bit spicy for us. I possibly used too much rub but the pepper was the predominant flavour and ended up being too much for some of my guests. I do highly recommend this method for preparing your ribs. However, I will reduce the pepper & cayenne pepper next go around and increase the garlic. Thanks for sharing and I'll make again with just a couple alterations.

I made Emeril's Essence from scratch for this recipe, and used a brown sugar barbeque sauce as I could find neither of these ingredients available. No matter, the recipe turned out fantastic and I would highly recommend for anyone to try it out!
