"Very tender fall off the bone ribs."
"Delicious way to make ribs... and the Maple Syrup is the perfect touch of New England goodness!!!"
"I cook for 4 picky eaters, and they all LOVED this recipe! The flavors blend so nicely."
"My husband said these were the best ribs he's ever had!! I didn't find it that much work and will definately be adding them to our dinner rotation!"
"These were outstanding ribs, especially considering the time involved. I joined this site just so I could comment. Truly unbelievable. I omitted/substituted ingredients here and there, but nothing that would greatly alter the overall product. I was very attentive to the basting, and then finished on about 400 degrees. I think this was key. Everyone raved and raved. A bit sweet for my taste, but no one else said a word. 6lbs of ribs went down quickly. Did it on a Friday night after a very tiring day and still found time to make rice and asparagus. Blew my mind that I could get ribs this good without using a grill."
