    Really tender baking at 250 degrees. Much easier than grilling. Put them in oven and forget about them.

    They were better than I expected and were very easy to prepare. My husband usually doesn't comment when he likes something he's eating but stated that they might be as good as Sticky Pig's ribs, which we really like. I'm making them again in a few days!

    This recipe is absolutely guaranteed to please. I’ve made this my standard and will not change. My advice to chefs is to take the time to remove the silver skin and use foil pans in addition to the Reynolds wrap to eliminate any leaks.

    This recipe is yum!!! I ended up not finishing the step down to the brook but the dry rub is so good you don’t even need the sauce!

    turned out perfect. i cooked them for 2hours and then covered them in foil for the last hour. they turned out tender and the bone could be pulled out of the meat easily. i threw them on the grill for 5 min to char up the meat side for that perfect look and added sauce as needed.

    Great recipe!! I went 3:30 and then brushed bbq sauce and broiled for another 10. Couldn’t even cut the ribs to separate them because they were sooo tender and fell right off the bone. Personal preference - will probably pull them at 3 hours and broil for 10 so they’re a little more manageable as individual ribs and not a heaping pile of rib meat.

    meat is fall off the bone tender. only suggestion is if you like a little kick to your bbq, add something hotter than just chili powder. i used some thai chili sauce and omg bruh
