Made it today for Christmas Eve dinner. Only two of us so just one slab of back ribs. I cut the dry ingredients in half and sprinkled on ribs. Baked for two hours, after 1 and a quarter hours I spread some sauce on them. 20 minutes before end of cooking I uncovered them. Turned out great. A keeper for us. Warmed up remaining sauce for dipping.

Tender ribs with thick sauce. Recommend spraying baking pan with oil spray prior to baking. Sauce is also great for pulled pork or beef bbq

These were a mixed success in our house. They were a little too spicy for the kids, but were OK for the adults. I have other rib recipes that are better, so I won't be making these again.

The ribs came out very tender,and good seasonings.I smelled something ,and discovered you had better fill the bottom of your pan with water.My non stick was filled with crusted fat.I didn't care for the sauce.Next time I will use sweet baby rays.Just didn't care for the flavor.Also going to use a disposable pan haha.with my rack to keep the meat off the bottom.Thanks

This is my boyfriend's favorite. I don't even normally like ribs, but I LOVE these!! Very tender, and the bbq sauce has great flavor! I love to pair this with cheesy hashbrowns!

Loved it. After experimenting, I personally liked it better with a sweet, not too spicy, chile sauce, and I baked it for a total of 4 hours at 300 degrees.

LOVED THESE TENDER RIBS. THE SECOND TIME I MADE THEM I SUBSTITUTED 1/2 CUP BARBECUE SAUCE FOR HALF THE KETCHUP AND REDUCED LIQUID SMOKE BY HALF. I GOT RAVE REVIEWS!
