    I prefer "dry ribs" not dripping with any sauce. Just tried this today on 2 slabs of ribs - cooked them slow and low (3 hours at about 250 degrees) great flavor - sweet but sorta spicy. They don't NEED any sauce!

    The rub had such a wonderful aroma after mixing. I used this on boneless chicken fingers. They were really good. This was my first time using a rub so I put it on sparingly. Next time I will use more before putting it on the grill.

    BEST RIBS EVER. Only thing I do differently is that once I've got them good and rubbed, I drizzle honey on the ribs before closing up in foil. We serve a little more BBQ sauce at the table after brushing on the ribs while they are on the grill. These are my GO TO ribs for summer and everyone FREAKS OUT when I make them. Thanks so much for posting!

    This is an incredible rub mixture and will be what I use going forward. Had all the ingredients on hand. I doubled the recipe and used it on 2 slabs of baby backs. Rubbed them the night before a party and let them "marinate" wrapped in the fridge overnight. Then cooked them for 5 hours at 200*. Kept them covered in foil for the first 4, then removed the foil for the last hour to get them crispy. Didn't bother broiling/applying BBQ since we prefer just a dry rub.

    I'm not even a fan of dry rub ribs but this is amazing. I will definitely make it again.

    i'm looking at the calories and nutritionals and there's no way that it's 1773 calories per serving. Is there anyway u can tweak it so it says pork baby back ribs? i think its going off of beef ribs.
