"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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 4, 2014

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.

I made a few slight modifications to suite my taste, such as eliminating the pepper and cayenne pepper because I don't like pepper. Even with these changes, the ribs went over well and everyone really enjoyed them! This recipe is a success and is a keeper!

I have made these delicious ribs a few times. They are a little bit time-consuming but so worth it. Everyone raves about them. I normally grill them but I am going to try the slow cooker.
