Actually, these are good any time of year, but I have been serving them on Super Bowl Sunday for the last 7 years or so! As a matter of fact, my oven broke once just as they had finished cooking, and we all agreed there was no better last meal to have!!! The prep time on this is super easy, but the cooking time is long and slow. Unlike most other recipes, this starts with a wet rub. I usually make this the night before the big game, and reheat later on Sunday. I have yet to try doing this in a crock pot, so if someone does, please let me know how it works out. For barbecue sauce, I like Sweet Baby Ray's, but I'm sure your favorite will work just as good.
