If you're really hungry, there's nothing like a rack of these ribs! They're a great summertime treat, but our family also traditionally enjoys them with side dishes of coleslaw and beans during the football games on New Year's Day.

"The sauce really did need more flavor. I tried to add flavor with brown sugar, honey and a touch of cayenne, but still just didn't seem to be enough. We also grilled it since the weather was so nice. Maybe if the rub had more spice it might have worked. Not bad, but not great."

"The ribs were delicious, but the sauce was lacking, didn't even taste like barbecue sauce. I bought two slabs of ribs, but only cooked one, as i found when i got home that each slab was 5lbs each and still there was half the sauce left. I frankly couldn't have put it all on or it would have run over the pan. Next time i will cook using these instructions, but using a different sauce."

"I halved the recipe to feed my boyfriend and I. I didn't have to drain the pan, which I thought was odd. It was easy and perfect for us college kids, who like an occasional nice meal."
