"Great for a busy day! Such an easy meal and nothing can beat the flavor of barbecued ribs. Extremely tender ribs. Most all vegetables go with this entree. Everyone will love the cook and smack their lips!"

    I made these on 11/04/12, and I'm so very sorry that I waited until now to review. Except for letting the ribs cook on low for 4 hours, (they were cooked for 6)the recipe was made exactly as written. I even made a thicker sauce as stated in Step 4. Both my SO and I thought that this was a very good recipe and want to thank you for posting a recipe that will be made again. " Keep Smiling :) .

    Made these luscious ribs over the weekend and they were soooooooo good! I followed the recipe as directed and wouldn't change a thing... The flavors were awesome! Will be making these again soon and trying them on the grill. Thanks for sharing with us Emily! Made and reviewed for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #14. Linda


<p>Thanks for taking the time to stop by My Page! I am married to a quiet, but fun loving guy who cleans up the kitchen!! I have grandchildren who I adore. I am retired from being a paralegal and a real estate agent. I have also been a substitute teacher for the elementary grades in the public school system. All of my recipes are the tried and true type. Many of them have come from my 48 years of cooking, my mother's recipe box or other relatives. I like Taste of Home magazine and I am a big fan of foodnetworkTV. I am a southern girl and enjoy comfort foods!!! I am a big cookbook collector and have been for years. I enjoy baking desserts most of all. I also enjoy games on my laptop, growing flowers, lunches with friends, babysitting grandchildren, photography and traveling. Since life is so short I try to count my blessings each day and give to the less fortunate. I had gotten into a rut on what to cook. Therefore, I am so happy I found the Recipezaar site. Pet Peeve: People with a negative attitude. MY RATING SYSTEM: 5 stars - Excellent in taste. May have minor change. 4 stars - Adjustment in ingredients for flavor. 3 stars - Fair, but not sure whether I would repeat. 2 and 1 stars - I do NOT give.
