Says Allan Stackhouse, Jr. in Jennings, Louisiana: "I’ll have to admit these ribs are finger-lickin’ good and fall-off-the-bone tender! I’ve made them for a lot of my buddies—including my preacher—and some have even suggested that I try bottling my sauce and selling it to the public!"

MY REVIEW

Just so so. Had to cook ribs an hour longer on high and didn't get the same tenderness as when roasting them in the oven. Used a chipolte rub instead of the cajun. Sauce was tastey.

MY REVIEW

Just wanted to make a comment. My BBQ recipe is almost identical to my recipe. Differences are, I don't use the cajun seasoning as we don't care for the taste of it., I dice my onion very fine, In place of molasses, I use 2/3 cup brown sugar. And I don't use the 1 tsp. BBQ sauce, because this recipe IS the BBQ sauce
