"the meat was very tender and was very east to make I will make this agien."

"The meat was very tender and delicious. The sauce was way too runny, one reviewer referred to it as "broth" which I think was an apt description. I sprinkled the meat with BBQ seasoning, used tomato sauce instead of juice (juice would just go to waste in our house), increased the brown sugar to 1 C, and added some additional bottled mustard, and some BBQ seasoning to the sauce. For serving, I just put out a bottle of BBQ sauce to go with the meat."

"Very tender but would have liked more flavor in sauce."

"Sauce was good, meat, not so great. I need to start buying my ribs at a butcher shop. Anywhere else, it's always tough in places and gristly in others. I'll try this again, using good meat."
