"These were awesome!! I used Dijon insteadof Spicy Brown mustard and they were good. I also after cooking the meat, took them out of the liquid in a separate bowl and poured the sauce over them and let them sit for an hour before grilling. Super moist. My husband couldn't stop eating."

"I love this recipe and especially the sauce. I do cheat sometimes though when the weather is bad. I boil the ribs for 10-15 minutes and then place ribs in a 10x15 pan and ladle most of the sauce over the ribs and bake at 350'F for 30-40 min. uncovered."

"I like to make these in the winter so instead of grilling them I put them in the oven (after boiling) and pour sauce on them. They are just as delicious as when you grill them!"
