"BASTING with the honey-and-oil glaze seals in the goodness of these delicious ribs as they bake to a golden brown. They can be prepared in the oven, or on the grill in a foil packet to keep the meat juicy."

"Just okay. I double the sauce like everyone suggested but felt like there was a vinegar after taste. The husband didn't enjoy it and drowned the ribs in regular bbq sauce."

"This was delicious! My husband said this is definitely a keeper. I did double the sauce recipe as suggested in other reviews & I cut back on the salt. Definitely will make again! I may even try the sauce on chicken."

"Quick & easy! I was searching for something that didn't require marinating and that wouldn't take half a day to cook. I doubled the sauce as recommended by someone earlier and it worked well since I had 4 pounds of ribs instead of 3. Good flavor overall, we will be making this again!"

"I doubled the sauce and made these in the crock pot for Christmas dinner. They were nothing short of AMAZING!!!! We are using the same recipe only using chicken wings for our New Years dinner."
