"As the picture suggests, these would be great on the grill. I'm thinking of adding a touch of liquid smoke next time. My husband says it's a definite keeper. I only had beef short ribs to work with, so I followed the sauce recipe but poured off all the fat before baking on the sauce."

"I use 1/2 cup regular yellow mustard only not spcy brown mustard and I don't add the hot pepper sauce and I add only a pinch of cloves. I put the ribs in the crock pot, mix everything else together and pour over the top. 6 hrs on high or 8 hours on low. turns out great every time."
