Yes, these racks would taste wonderful hot off the grill, but you can really enjoy these sweet, fall-off-the-bone ribs any time of the year. The raspberry preserves give my BBQ (and now yours) that lil’ something extra! —Stephen Marino, Nutley, New Jersey

"No leftovers tonight! These ribs are delicious. I baked them for about 3 hours before adding the sauce. Can't wait to make them again."

"I made these ribs for this past July Fourth and my family and guests raved about them! I also used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and doubled the recipe for the 8 lbs. of ribs I used. Cooking the ribs in the house freed up my grill for the other meats I served. However, I skipped the broiler part at the end of the recipe and finished the ribs on the grill for 10 minutes before serving. Fall-off-the-bone delicious!"

"This is a great recipe. I used Sweet Bay Ray's Raspberry BBQ sauce and Polaner sugar free preserves. The rest of the recipe I didn't change. Great reviews from all my guests."
