"Very good. Pretty much falls off of the bone."

"I have one other rib recipe that uses whiskey which is almost on par with this one...almost. I don't tweak this at all but I really don't like fatty ribs...kind of ruins the experience so, in order to thoroughly enjoy this recipe, I take about half an hour and pull all the fat I can, as well as silver skin off the meat and bones...then proceed. Stunning!"

"I made this recipe exactly as is. Cooked the ribs for 7 hours in the slow cooker and the meat fell off the bone. However, we found the sauce extremely sweet. Will not make again."

"We loved it, easy fell off the bones. I did not have cherry presserves so used strawberry, still good with my choice of bar-b-que sauce."
