"We were very disappointed in this recipe. Although the meat fell off the bone, the ribs had no flavor and we found them very bland. Will not make again."

"These were absolutely fantastic! Fall off the bone tender, moist, and the sauce was tasty without being overpowering. Definitely a keeper recipe!"

"I made them exactly as shown and they were a major hit! My daughter worked for years at a fancy restaurant in the south and said these are better than they served! I won't be looking any further for the perfect recipe - this is it!"
