"I gave this recipe four stars because I did not use the beer and I used the crockpot with BBQ sauce (1 bottle). This was my first time cooking ribs and the family loved it. We didn't have any ribs left for left overs."

"I made these tonight but cut back on the salt and italian seasoning. They are delicious and so tender they fall off the bone. This recipe is a keeper."
