"More, please!" is what I hear when I serve these zippy, finger-licking ribs to family or guests. The first time my husband and I tried them, we pronounced them "the best ever." The recipe has its roots in the Calgary Stampede, an annual Western and agricultural fair and exhibition in our province. —Marian Misik, Sherwood Park, Alberta

"Baked in slow cooker on low for 7 hrs. Used baby back ribs. Cooled and applied the rub and placed it n the fridge overnight. Basted with BBQ sauce which was fantastic, and baked for 30 minutes turning and basting ribs with more BBQ ever 10 min or so"
