"Best ribs ever! My 13 y/o son picked this recipe and it's a keeper! We used the extra sauce on boneless chicken breasts and grilled them too. Really good. This is the only way I will make ribs in the future."

"Amazing!! Ribs are very tender and the sauce is perfect! You will have sauce left over which is great to use on chicken or pork chops. Great recipe!"
