Reviews for Calgary Stampede Ribs
"My family says these are the best ribs they've ever had. The sauce is amazing! They've asked for this to become our regular rib recipe."
"Used this recipe on venison ribs and it turned out great!"
"TOTALLY AWESOME!!! CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS RECIPE!!"
"Amazing!!! Incredible!!! I impressed myself with these fantastic ribs. I made them exactly as the recipe stated. My husband loved these. I will definitely be making these again!!"
"I served these ribs twice in the past 3 weeks and got rave reviews both times! I love that you can cook them ahead and then let the rub to sit overnight. This makes the actual serving part very simple- just a few minutes on the grill. The recipe only calls for 1/8 tsp cayenne so we did not find it overpowering. The folks I served these too thought the sauce made the ribs. I was a fan myself and will definitely keep this as my go-to rib recipe."
"I thought the rub had too much cayenne in it, and I didn't even use the full amount. The sauce was OK by itself, but even that had cayenne in it, which added to the overkill. The cooking method was successful, yielding tender, juicy ribs. The two-step, overnight, method made it easy to enjoy ribs on a weeknight after work. I will cook my ribs this way again, but will use a different rub next time, and probably a different homemade sauce."
"I use Chopped (jar) Garlic to rub them with. I keep excess Rib Rub in the freezer: to use on the next batch of C.S.R. A friend prefers much more Cayenne Pepper (uses 5 shakes): same friend uses a bag to apply Rib Rub (similarly to Shake-n-Bake): I find that too spicy, so I stick to the recipe. Excellent Recipe"
"This is my very favourite Rib recipe. I never used to even think much about Pork Ribs: after finding this recipe, now I look for Rib Sales."
