Oh my gosh these ribs were really good. Not even any left over. Will be making them again but will have to double it.

Good recipe. I usually make my ribs in the crockpot, and I still prefer that way. Next time I'll use foil to cover my baking pan to help with cleanup.

My husband said these were the best ribs he's ever had!! I didn't find it that much work and will definately be adding them to our dinner rotation!

These were outstanding ribs, especially considering the time involved. I joined this site just so I could comment. Truly unbelievable. I omitted/substituted ingredients here and there, but nothing that would greatly alter the overall product. I was very attentive to the basting, and then finished on about 400 degrees. I think this was key. Everyone raved and raved. A bit sweet for my taste, but no one else said a word. 6lbs of ribs went down quickly. Did it on a Friday night after a very tiring day and still found time to make rice and asparagus. Blew my mind that I could get ribs this good without using a grill.
