"Excellent ribs, everyone in the family (5 adults) liked these. I followed the recipe closely, although I doubled the time on the BBQ (10 min., 5 min. per side at 300*) to get those nice grill marks, and I did 3 racks instead of two. Just enough leftovers for a two person lunch the next day. I don't usually boil ribs before hitting the BBQ, but this turned out tender, juicy and tasty. Will make again."

"Just to further skew the results... {grin} While this cooking method is unusual (I personally 'steam' my ribs at 300 degrees F on a rack in a tightly covered roaster with a bit of water for 2.5 hours then finish on the grill), I don't believe the 2/2014 review is valid if the reviewer did not attempt the recipe. I mean no disrespect, but the goal of a review is to help fellow cooks not insult recipe submitters. Try it, then disparage if you must. I'll give the recipe a go even though I like my method, simply so I'm not guilty of the pot/kettle conundrum. {grin}"
