Amazing ribs! Like others, I doubled the sauce. Definitely a recipe I will use over and over and over!

Cooked the ribs and sauce exactly as recipe suggests this morning. Put the ribs in tinfoil with a generous amount of the sauce all over the ribs, and refrigerated to grill this afternoon. The flavors so far are great. Can't wait to grill them up. Next time I might add a little liquid smoke to the sauce just for the smokey flavor.

Love these ribs! Great rub! Great sauce! I used bone-in country style ribs instead. Would not change a thing!

Excellent... used cayenne pepper instead of chili power only because I was out. Very spicy, but really good.

we loved this recipe, the sauce was top notch. The only thing we will do different is to go with beef ribs and make a little bit more sauce and cook the ribs in the sauce then put them on the grill.
