"My husband thought they were pretty good, but I didn't care for them. The meat was tender and juicy, but the BBQ flavor was just a little overwhelming to me."

"I have made these several times. My husband likes this recipe. However, I think the jerk seasoning is a little to spicy for me so I don't use the full 1/3 cup. Still a great recipe!"

"Excellent! I was in a rush and mixed all ingredients together, then poured them over the ribs instead of putting the rub on first. They were still delicious. We'll make these again."
