"I have made these twice now - my son loves these ribs - and he never eats ribs! A very good fall off the bone recipe. My husband & I also love them!"

"I made this recipe for Labor Day weekend 2012. It was my 1st ever attempt at cooking ribs. Everyone loved it, I looked like a cooking genius. The ribs were so tender and flavorful. I had to double the batch of rub and I added a tsp Cumin and a tsp of Essence of Emeril, I also added some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce during the last roasting hour. I used both country cut and regular cut ribs, ended up cooking aproximately 16 large ribs for 5 people. I had 3 ribs remaining for leftovers; which by the way were just as good and tender the next day. Whoever submitted this recipe, Thank You very much for this recipe, I will most definetly make again soon."
